Didnt manage to go into the brewhouse so this review is based on the beer garden around the corner on the Alter Markt.
Location is in a corner on the square covered by overhanging leafy trees and umbrellas giving a nice shady spot in the sun.
The area was quiet and sleepy with the occasional stag do wandering by or sitting down for a few Kolsch.
Service was slow to be honest, i dont think the Kobes noticed us as we sat down as we waited 10 mins or so for a beer, but once ordered it was very efficient.
Only Peters Kolsch available along with Schofferhoffer hefe-weizen.Definitely not the best Kolsch but was fresh.
Didnt try the food nor see anyone else partaking!
A nice location to sit and have a sleepy afternoon but otherwise better places to frequent.
Will definitely go into the pub next time!

One of the most 'up-market' by external appearance of brew houses in Cologne, though once inside you realise it is relaxed and easy going as most of the other brewery bars. Service was about standard for Cologne, efficient, and the guy who served us was fairly friendly and spoke to us in English. The Peters Kolsch is not one of the best, but good non-the-less, medium dry, clean and fresh, but not outstanding as one or two are.
Interesting interior with the usual bare wooden tables, and one room at the rear has an interesting ceiling worth looking at.
Definately worth a visit when in Cologne, unless you only have time to visit three Brewery Bars, in which case Malzmuhle, Paffgen and Paffen are the ones to enjoy!

I visited this place on three occasions while on a weekend in Cologne (End of November 2010). The first occasion was when my wife and I went in during the day just for a couple of kolsch. The kobe was pleasent and efficient. This experience encouraged me to go back there with another couple for lunch and dinner (with beer, of course). The food was excellent. but the place can get very busy on weekend nights, and prebooking is advised. This is done with your waiter, and you ask for him when going there at the appointed hour.
The place itself is a beautiful interior with plenty of wood and a beautiful stained glass ceiling in the second room. This is a must visit in Cologne.

This was the first place I visited after arriving in Cologne. The food was good - we had Pork knuckle with sauerkraut and mash. The Kolsch was a shock to begin with, but it was first experience with kolsch vom fass, so I soon got used to it and found it quite nice.
The place is your typical beer hall type arrangement with some nice lights and decorations for the current carnival going on in the city (clown related?)
Solid, but nothing exceptional to make it a stand out. I would definitely go back in if I was passing.

Stop number 3 on a Kolsch bar-hop through the center of Cologne. We didn't enter the brauhaus, so this review is based on what I'll term the beer garden in front.
There were shady tables with seating for maybe 150 people, very comfortable at the end of a long day of travel. The servers were extremely fast, and although we only ordered beers I saw that the food menu looked extensive. It included all the great classics, pork knuckle included.
The Kolsch was surprisingly good. I'll leave my decriptions of the beer to the beer review, but I'll say here that it's a great reason to come to this particular brauhaus. Among the best I tried while in Cologne.

From the outside, the place almost looks like a palace and makes you reluctant to enter just for a beer. Once inside, you find yourself in a rustic German restaurant, with a 100% wood decoration, many paintings on the wall, a small souvenir shop on the right next to the kitchen, and a nice if not cheesy colored glass ceiling in one of the rooms on the left. The long wooden tables make the place quite convivial. I ate there, and got pretty happy with my sausages. The waiter I got was maybe the nicest I got in Köln; not that he was super friendly, but very good for Köln The crowd seemed to be a mix of locals, business people and tourists. Not fancy, pretty low-key, a nice place to relax.

Has a real old world feel to the place, lots of dark wood, ancient decorations, beautful chandeliers. The menu consisted of lots of boiled meats and vegetables, if you want to play it on the safe side, order the Brauhaus-Teller, two pork schnitzels served with a salad and some home fries. There is only one beer here, the kolsch. If you're in Koln, you're drinking kolsch, and you could do a lot worse than Peters. The waitstaff is helpful and generally speaks English. This is a bit of a tourist stop. The locals stick to one of the many many other local bars for the most part, but they drink here too. Overall, a traditional German brauhaus experience with good beer, good food, and a great atmosphere.
