I went for a meal at the Brauerei zur Malzmuehle in January 2015 and loved it so much that we went back the next day :) Great traditional and modern food - so we liked the pork knuckle just s much as the vitality salad with grilled turkey stripes. We also caught same carnival action :) Great place, will return!

Went here for the classic pork knuckle which is a monster 1.2kg, not the best knuckle in town but one of thd biggest. Has to be my favourite kolsch bar in town though, such a good beer here. Will be back for the beer at least

This brewpub is in my opinion one of the best brewpubs in Cologne,and in an area packed with great brewpubs,that takes some doing. You have to cross a few busy roads,tram line and pelican crossing but the reward is one of the best beers in Cologne. We went and and as you pass through the revolving doors ,you are met... More

Were pleased to note that behind the scaffolding and confusion of seeing a sign for Brauhaus Trotz this was the place we visited several years ago and wanted to take two friends. Busy typical German Brauhaus. Traditional german menu - we were stopping for a snack and enjoyed the gulasch suppe with rye bread. The waiters will replace your empty... More

They have extended the place and take more people but have not extended the kitchen capacity. So tonight still no food after 90 minutes. Go somewhere else. There are many other places where clients are taken more seriously.

Typical cologne location with nice atmosphere but the food is rather poor. I had the typical "himmel un Äd". First time I didn't like it.

WE followed the recommendation from TripAdvisor. We got exactly what we looked for - A genuine German place with lots of locals that having good time with beer and food. As we enter the crowded place we felt the strong smell of the warm sour cabbage. We liked it because that's was one of the dishes we wanted to have.... More

Try their pork knuckle, it is very tasty. Good local beer as well. Some waiters did not speak english which make difficult to order meals some times.
