Arrived in Leipzig

After checking in to the hotel we went walkabout...

First stop was Die Gohliser Wirtsschanke in the Gohlis district of Leipzig:

Gohliserbräu, their contract brewed helles. It was pretty nice.

They also had Früh Kolsch.

They had a Schwarzbier as well, but it was pretty bad -- so bad I forgot to take a picture.

Not far away is Ohne Bedenken, the most famous Gosebier pub in town.

The just listed "Gosebier" on the tap list, it turns out this one was from Bayerische Bahnhof...

The other draft Gose was the Döllnitzer Ritterguts (on the right below). Much more sour but less of a malt base -- the Bayerische Bahnhof was more "beer-y."

I can see why Ohne Bedenken gets such great reviews -- it is a really nice pub and the addition of Gose from two breweries makes it extra special.

After dinner we headed back to the hotel but it was early so we decided to walk around. We stopped at Barthels Hof, which had been recommended by a friend -- and had a Krostitzer (not to be confused with Köstritzer) Pils, Schwarzbier and a bland hefeweizen from Schöfferhofer (a fellow brewery of the Radelberger group). All were drinkable, but that is about the best I'd say.
