Beer, 5 stars. A genuine German beer process, and a very drinkable product.

Food, 1 star. As a previous reviewer noted, autobahn rest stop type food. A very limited menu of lackluster choices. You would get more choice at a street corner schnell imbis in Germany.
The mushroom pizza (choice of one pizza) was OK but very small for the price. The sausage was not hot. Meat products should not be served luke warm, even if they are factory cooked like a Bratwurst.

I would go back for the beer, but would not take anyone there for the food.


I was happy with the food and beer. The setting is very nice as well and the live music was an unexpected treat. The chef was out and about and took input both good and bad like a champ. One drawback is the inside was stiflingly hot. Luckily the outside seating is ample and comfortable.


the pricing is ridiculous high but the food tastes like at a german highway restaurant. I`m wondering how long they will survive.


The beer is good but expensive and only a lager or a dark beer to choose from...not really a beer lovers dream. Other breweries in Kunming have more options to choose from and their starting prices are fairer, around 35 kuai a pint, here it is around 60 a pint. I have eaten here only a couple of times, it's ok western food but way too expensive. It is cheaper to eat and drink in London. Curious to why the prices change so frequently, set your prices and stick to them.
