This ex-brewery site of the Lederer Brewery (trade mark being a Crocodile) is now a large beer garden with restaurant bars and function rooms.
To get to the Lederer Brau beer garden, take the Metro from the main railway station to the Barenschanz stop (travelling westwards) takes about 5-8 minutes - as you come out of the Metro station take the Sielstrasse exit, and at the top of the stairs look right, and you can see the beer garden entrance about 50 yards along Sielstrasse.
The interior bars and adjoining rooms still have the brewing equipment and a steam engine on show and make for interesting viewing! The outside beer garden under trees is probably the largest in the Nuremberg area, and would be very busy in the evenings in fine weather.
The beer garden has a separate beer bar, and if you sit outside of the restaurant seating area (which also extends outside a short way) you have to also leave a glass deposit. Though this may only open in the evenings and in fine weather.
There are 4 beers on tap, the Kroko Special Keller beer being the 'house" beer, and which is served in a stylish heavy tall slim jug. The beer is rather darker than the usual keller beers of the area, and I found it a decent easy to drink beer, though not outstanding, but great on a warm summers day sat outside. There are also other Lederer beers and the usual Tucher beers on tap.
The food menu is comprehensive and looks good value, and seems popular, though we did not try any food there. Mid-day in the week is fairly quiet and easy to get a seat and table inside or out, but weekends and evenings could be very busy. Service while there was good, but it was quiet, though there seemed to be plenty of staff available to serve customers inside and out. Some English is spoken, and an English menu was available.
The web site gives full details of the beers available, and the food prices. Opens every day from around 11am, but check the web site for all details. See - http://www.l-kb.de/lederer-kb/
Whilst it gives the impression that Lederer is still brewing its own beers, I am led to understand their beers are now brewed at the Tucher brewery in Furth, but these premises keep up the name and tradition. Lederer beers can also be tried at various bars in Nuremberg, just look for the Crocodile sign hanging outside a bar.
Whilst not the very best example of local beers, well worth the visit for their keller beer and food, both being good value.
