Yesterday, due to a sudden change of venue I found myself having lunch (and beer) at Mein Schloss Brewery and Restaurant in Hamamatsu.
Service: Friendly, smiling and willing to please.
Equipment and Facilities: Very clean overall. Superb washroom. Entirely non-smoking!
Strong points: Home-brewed beer, great variety in pub grub. Convivial.
Mein Schloss means “My Castle”
Very skitch, but oh well
At least the opening hours are plain and easy to understand
The brewery’s two-month schedule and menu outside are easy to check
Beer garden in use during the weekends
Entirely non-smoking, this is a big plus
Have a good look at all the displays inside
One can check their menu without entering
The beer brewed on site and they do not sell bottles as everything has to be drunk inside
The restaurant staff are ever so smiling and helpful
A different kind of welcoming staff!
Everything is brewed on site
Beware the guards!
The restaurant and brewery’s large space overhead, and more displays
Pizza oven, plenty of food on the menu for any taste
Great collection of beer jugs along the walls
Worth a second good look
The hall can hold no less than 850 guests yet the brewery is completely booked from time to time
Useful beer card
The brewery and restaurant establishment has been producing 4 regular beers and seasonal ones since their foundation in March 1997. They also serve schnapps, cocktails, Japanese sake, shochu, spirits, wine and soft drinks during lunch and dinner.
For the collectors
The restaurant has some good, reasonable lunch sets
Deep-fried oysters with plenty of salad, a specialty more Japanese than German
I found these oysters and tartar sauce very tasty and great with the beer
Nice cheese plate to help with the fourth beer
Before you leave have a good look at the ingredients that go into the making of your beer.[cft format=0]
