Brauhaus am Waldschlössen is north and east of both the altstadt and then the innere neustadt, across the river Elbe. It's easily accessible via a tram that will take you across the Carolabrüke to Albertplatz where you can easily switch to another tram going east on Bautzner Strasse. In all honesty you could walk it if you had a good amount of time, but why bother? Save that for the trip back: on the way you can stop at Pfund's Dairy, Zum Bautzner Tor (depending on the time - they open at 5pm), Watzke am Goldenen Reiter (Haupstrasse 1) and/or the Wenzel Prager Bierstuben (Konigstrasse 1) before crossing the Augustusbrüke back into the Altstadt. If you leave in the late morning or early afternoon it's a beautiful trip and you'll still arrive back in time to visit the Katholische Hofkirche, Brühlsche Terrasse, and the Frauenkirche.

Once you arrive at the Brauhaus you'll find it situated upon a cliff. Walk up the alley and you'll find the stairs that take you to the biergarten which overlooks the city to the south. There's a beautiful view, and a beautiful 7-tiered fountain. Upon entering the bar is directly in front of you to the right, and the brewhouse is behind it.

It's a fairly comfortable space despite its size because of the way the room is divided, and because of all the warm wood.

The service is typical German, so don't expect any friendly hellos and happy smiles, just have your order ready and make it quick and concise.

There are 4 house beers: Original, Zwickelbier, Dunkels, and Hefeweizen. They are all available in a .3L glass for €2,10 or a .5L for €3,20. You can also get a full liter for €5,50 or individual samples of .1L for €,70. They also fill growlers and sell ,5L swing-top bottles of the Original to go.

In addition they offer Paulaner Pils, on tap, and they make a radler with 7-Up, or a Sachsen-radler with home-made strawberry syrup. Bottles of Paulaner DunkelWeiss, AlkoholFrei Weiss, AlkoholFrei Zitrone Weiss, and Original Munchner AlkoholFrei are all €3,30.

I unfortunately have nothing to offer regarding the food. Sorry.

Visited this place whilst on a brief trip to Dresden. It is a bit out from central Dresden but on a tram line so fairly easy to get there.

When we arrived it was a very cold Monday evening. Even so there were quite a few people there, quite a lot were there to eat I guess. The menu had a good selection of German favourites (I went or the Bratwurst and saurkraut, rather tasty). The pub itself is spacious with the bar area in the middle, with waitress service. Outside there is plenty of space for tables and there is a commanding view of central Dresden, very popular in the summer according to my German colleague. There was a singer with piano which added to the relaxed atmosphere, mostly covers of light music e.g. Eagles.

Their beer selection is dominated by their own beers of which there is 4, I had two dunkels. These compared very favourably with others I have had. In addition to their own beers there are some from larger breweries such as Paulaner. Service was efficient without being particularly friendly.

This is a fairly typical German brewpub, good food and good though small selection of the classic German style beers. Overall worth a visit and you could certainly spend a pleasant evening here. Certainly I'd like to visit in the summer and perhaps a weekend evening. Sadly I did not have time to visit anywhere else in Dresden so can't compare to the other places there.
