Second place I wandered into in Regensburg.

It is a smaller bierhall sort-of place. The initial hall you walk into is sort-of standing room only, that is where me and my friends stood for a round, right next to the bier counter. But you have to order form a waitress.

Some of us got the pils, some the dunkel. Both beers were a pretty high level. They didn't have the bock but I later found it at a getraenkemarkt nearby.

It is a nice little stop in Regensburg, I would recommend it. If you are looking for a place to maybe skip for time, this is not one.

Regensburg is a lovely city, one of the lucky few who didn't get grounded into rubble in WWII, so instead of painfully bland 60's eyesores (Re: Stuttgart) you get cool old buildings and bridges. On the edge of the old town is Kneitinger.

Atmosphere is textbook German brewery pub, with the souvenirs in a case before you walk in, the Beer dispensing as you walk in, picnic tables and a glass roof in the center. The restaurant is split in different sections as if the original brewery bought the adjescent buildings and just busted the walls. I've seen pubs like this in Bamberg and other cities, so nothing truely original, but when you go to places like this you're not looking for original, you're going for authentic.

Service was very good, as our waitress pretty much only had us to serve.

2 Beers on tap, the pils and dunkle. Too bad, the bock wasn't available yet. My dunkle was quite nice, but the one I had from Thurm & Taxis was a bit better. The sip of pils from my colleague's glass wasn't bad either.

I didn't try the food, but the menu looked like typical German fare and prices were decent.

I had a good time here and I recommend it.

Stopped in here on a cold, rainy day (28SEP07) with daughter Caitlin to have a bier or 2 and grab some grub....

Situated on Arnulfplatz, a decent-sized square with numerous city buses coming and going, Kneitinger is housed in a large, old yellow building. One enters through a foyer with displays of mugs, toy trains, bier paraphernalia, etc, into a long, front-to-back corridor, a Schwemme-like area with an opening going up about 1.5 stories to a glassed-in ceiling. Many long picnic tables occupy this area, with a Stammtisch or 2 thrown in; a good spot to chill with a bier, or watch one of the 2-3 large screen TVs suspended above. Off to either side of this long Schwemme are 2 to 3 small, traditional rooms; one is on the immediate left upon entering the hall. A service bar is mid right, with the kitchen further on the left. Two more Stüberl are on the right side... all are lined with worn, dark wood, looking quite aged and weathered. There are plenty of waittresses around in all areas to handle your needs. They only had 2 biers on, a Pils and a Dunkles; their DBock comes on in a few weeks (big time bummer for me!). A tasty Currywurst mit Rostkartoffeln filled the belly adequately. Overall, a decent place, though more bier selection would be cool.

In Regensburg for the weekend and my wife and friends were kind enough to let me decide where we would have lunch. Stopped here, right on Arnulfsplatz in the western part of the old town at the official tap for Kneitinger Brauerei.

Quintessential Bavarian pub. You walk in and there's a long hallway that leads all the way to the back of the premesis with a room through a door to the left and a few intereconnected rooms off to the right. There's some indoor picnic table type seating towards the back of the hallway, but the rooms are typical dark wood paneling and "woodsy" Bavarian decor.

The waitress was very patient with our (still) limited German and very friendly.

Split weißwurst and käsespätzle with my wife along with a dunkles and a bock. They also had a pils, which one of our friends got, but I only had a sip of. All beers were from draft, having been brewed at the Kneitinger Brauerei in another part of town. The waitress used this wire basket that could hold about a dozen beers to deliver them to the table. The käsespätzle was some of the best I've had here and the weißwurst was solid as well.

The beers were very fresh and well-crafted, if a bit on the mild side. Prices were typical.
