We had a great meal with their homebrewed Watzkebeer: excellent! The restaurant was part of a beautiful old building where they also had a real oldfashioned ballroom.

Special beer had good taste and smell. Not so sweet and bitter. Knuckle was with beer sauce nice, very crispy skin. One loved must appreciate. Atmosphere looked classic and traditional style.
