3.33/5  rDev -17.2%

The wife and I stopped here on our recent trip to Europe. This was a very close second on the best Kolsch in the city center.

The atmosphere was less than desirable after having spent most of our time in open air cafes our well aired dining rooms in the summer. The only windows were in the front and the whole place was very smoky and there was no outside seating It made me feel somewhat claustrophobic.

However, the beer quality was excellent. A worthy stop for a few Kolsch after our visit to the chocolate museum down the road!

Great Kölsch, very good atmosphere, we had an awesome schwieneshaxe and although we weren’t locals we were never made to feel like that. This place is just off the main square so not as touristy as other Kölsch bars. This bar would be my first stop everytime I returned to Cologne.

Far enough from the tourist frenzied center to actually encounter a local or two. On our last visit we were fortunate enough to enjoy the first half dozen rounds courtesy of a very nice couple that are based in the area. Very quiet on Sunday evening.

The beer is one of the best of the Kolsch style, but if you want variety of styles, you wouldn't be in Cologne, now would you? Served fresh from a cask on the bar, no CO2 pressure required. Prices are reasonable for city center, and it is very convenient to access from the tram.

Drinking kolsch, it's better than remodeling your flat. I had the opportunity to see a few breweries on my own while EIke and Daniella fixed up their newly bought flat. Fist stop, Malzmuhle. It's interior is on the darker side and you can sense the history whcih has been left on the walls. I didn't see a bar to sit at, so grab a seat at a table and get served in a quick manner.

Kolsch, as you can imagine, is the staple house beer, and is first served to you by default. It was my favorite kolsch of the trip, and I helped myself to a few pours of the beer. If you're looking for something a little different, there is also a malzbier (a low alcohol, sweet dark beer) and a bottled weizenbier which was served with its own weizen glass. The kolsch is also available in bottles to go.

It's not a classic spot in the city like Gaffel Haus or Fruh am Dom. However, Malzmuhle has my favorite kolsch, and that would certainly have me return.

This place is located a bit south of the Heumarkt tram stop. When I was there, they were working on the roads making it difficult to get across to; the best way being to go down into the underpass and directly back up the other side. Climb a couple of steps and push on the revolving door brings you in to this fine drinking house. We went there just for beer and it was easy enough to get a table as the rush for food was over. We stayed in the front room and drank some kolsch. The only other brew on tap is a 2.5 % malty beverage that is not great. Service was efficient and our glasses were replaced when required. Another must visit when in Cologne.

Six months ago I tried to find this brewpub but ended up assuming it was only a brewery, no restaurant or drinking area. My friends and I are idiots, as just this week I returned and it is very easy to find your way through the front door.

This is a little off the beaten path as far as Kolsch brewpubs go, but not too far. About a 15 minute walk south from the Koln Dom.

The interior is nice, all wooden chairs and tables, lots of wood fixtures, beautiful multi-pane windows that look old (but I'm sure aren't). It all looks sorta authentically old except for the floor, which has new-looking tile (at least it's stone color). There was a huge spiraling staircase to the second level which was closed when I was there.

The food is a little pricy compared to other Kolsch pubs, but it tasted good. English menus are available which makes ordering as easy as pointing. The beer itself is easy pounding and priced on par with others in town (1.55 euros per 0.2L glass).

Two beers are served here, their Kolsch (which is OK) and Malzbeer (a wierd and sugary concoction that I do NOT recommend).

The service was excellent, the friendliest waiter I've yet encountered in Cologne, not that any of them have been rude, just a little distant. Anyways that wasn't the case here, it was a warm reception and a new glass appeared every time the last drop emptied from the previous one.

Visited on the July summer day of 10/07/2010

Entering the pub is a unique experience going through the revolving door and through the heavy red curtain.

This reveals an old style brewpub with wooden panelling, tiled floors and pine seating/tables.

Service was quick and efficient, quickly getting Kolschs landed on our coasters.

Malzmuhle Kolsch of course on the agenda and served straight from the wood, very fresh.

Didnt try the food but saw the Schnitzel and it was the size of my face!

Definitely one of the busiest brewpubs we got to, which made for a lively bustling atmosphere.

Definitely a must visit!
