I have been in Germany for about 8 months now, I am from the US. I had been missing hop character in beers. The German Purity law makes it challenging to have beer that stands out. BUT, this brewery is in a nice setting, it is usually pretty busy, and they have delicious beer! I sat at the bar and spoke with the man sitting next to me, turned out her was the master brewer/owner. I told him I liked hoppy beers and he ordered me something, not sure what it was but it was delicious! We then ordered all there beers on tap (they rotate on 4 taps) and tried three of their bottles. I was surprised by how many styles they had available. All good beer!

Went here based on recommendations from others here on BA, it was something different in Germany they actually brew great beer I tried all of their selection at the time unfortunately it wasn't a lot they only had like 4 as the master brewer was on vacation. But I tried the Helios, the Helios wizen the alt and the no hops beer. And they were all memorable. I appreciate the friendliness of the staff in helping me understand the menu. The patrons were also very freindly and picked up conversation with me quite quickly. I do suggest you go here if your ever in Cologne looking for something unique. the food menu is amazing and the quality is still some of the best Ive eaten while on my short trip. and all this for a very reasonable price.

Braustelle is a brewpub in a bustling neighborhood several miles from downtown Cologne. The door is on the corner of the building, and the modest bar, several steps inside, runs diagonally across the room and seats perhaps 12. The rest of the space is taken up by about 15 variously-sized tables. The brewing equipment is in the back of one side and mostly in the basement. One might think that a pub, self- proclaimed as "Cologne's Smallest Brewery", might have one beer, maybe even a good one. But Braustelle had 4 of their own beers on tap, as well as 5 bottled beers of their own to offer. Like an American brewpub they experiment with styles, offering among others a German Porter, a Doppell, Trippel, and a beer that tasted like an English barley wine. Early on a Saturday evening, the place was quite busy with people eating, drinking, and enjoying themselves.
