Description: Bratislava Burgess Brewery in Drevena Street follows an old tradition of the famous Burgess Brewery, “Die Bürgerliche Brauerei“, called the Burgher by residents. Nice beer was brewed there and the adjacent brewery restaurant was well-known for its domestic cuisine. The new brewery is on three floors and it aims to lure visitors mainly with a special kind of its own beer which it produces in opposition to industrially brewed beer. The Burgess Brewery is equipped with the most modern technology that is currently available for minibreweries. God bless you”, this is how also maltsters greet each other and this greeting is also in the house. “The process of brewing of our beer starts with the selection of the raw ingredients of the highest quality. Brewing is done by a traditional technology of double malting using traditional raw ingredients: malt, water, hops and yeast, nothing else to be added. It is brewed exclusively from hops of the highest quality, sourced from Zatevec region. Water used for production is filtered and adjusted. Our beer is the beer of Pilsner type, it is produced by the standard process of bottom fermentation,” says maltster Peter Pramuk. Besides the technology of the highest quality, the process of the beer production is imbedded also in the soul of three owners – beer fans who a few years ago were observing the conceptions of minibreweries with restaurants all around the world. They insisted that beer should be bitter exactly to their taste. And this was something that excellent maltsters – Mr Brauner and Mr Pramuk – have perfectly mastered. In order to produce 12 degree beer, the main fermentation takes 8 to 10 days, next fermentation takes 4 weeks. Beer is not filtered or pasteurized, and so it contains live yeast. Beer is carbonized which means that oxidation or beer aging is prevented. Since unfiltered beer does not come into contact with oxygen, rotting is avoided which has a positive impact on its quality. Subsequently, nice hop odour of beer is released and its repletion or greater taste richness is emphasized. Traditional, conservative, sound and hearty cuisine which goes with beer tries to follow original Pressburg formulas. Naturally, the cuisine is today technologically totally different but some traditional procedures in recipes work till nowadays. The chef Frantisek Sipos stresses the seasonality of some meals or raw food like asparagus, mushrooms, venison or slaughter season which will vary the rigid menu a là carte. Also sweet meals like “sufrle” (dumplings) come from Pressburg. Other caloric calibres are meals proved by decades, for example beef sirloin in cream sauce, dill sauce and homemade dumpling, roast knee or deliciously served brewery delicacy or tartar steak and toast.

Had ribs here and the portions are enough for two. The restaurant has it's own brewery on site and the home brew is 12% so pace yourself

In a company of four, we ordered two ribs, crispy pork knee and a burger. I had the ribs and they were really well made and the meat just fell right off the bone when you touched the rib. It's a lot of food (rib = 700 grams, crispy pork knee = 550 grams, and you can order beer in litre glasses.

The burger looked a bit boring and dry, so I wouldn't recommend that one, but the pork knee and ribs were delicious!

Wanted to try a soup while in Bratislava but with warm weather I wasn't tempted until it rained one day. And was I lucky because I ended up here and it was the most amazing soup I’ve ever had. The creamy garlic soup served in a bread was, believe it or not, creamy and smooth. The bread itself was so fresh and tasty and I tried to eat it all but couldn’t. Warm recommendations!

We had the garlic soup with croutons (as opposed to the one served in a bread basket) and the cabbage soup. For mains we shared the sheep cheese pierogies and the potato dumplings stuffed with smoked meat. The prices were really reasonable - under €7 for each main course which were hefty portion sizes. They were well presented and the flavours all complemented one another. We had a beer and a large glass of Pinot Gris - it came to a total of €30. Nice atmosphere - lots of languages being spoken! The decor is also very welcoming. Would definitely recommend if you're in Bratislava. No photos of what we ate as we tucked right in!

Our family of two adults and two teenagers ate here and really enjoyed the food and the busy atmosphere. You sit at one of many tables in the open air, sharing if necessary. Some waiters speak English and there are also menus in English. We had the Brewery Speciality, of chicken breast, chicken liver, bacon and onion, with boiled spuds (superb), chicken drumsticks with mashed potatoes (good), beef schnitzel with chips, which were proper chips (not french fries), and steak in cream sauce with dumplings (which in fact came with bread, not dumplings). The service was fast and friendly. Be aware that they ask for last orders at about 9.30pm, and you'll only have the one chance to order any further food or drink.
