Fodor's Review

One of the city's oldest microbreweries, the Watzke offers a great reprieve from Dresden's mass-produced Radeberger. Several different homemade beers are on tap—you can even help brew one. Tours of the brewery cost €5 with a tasting, or €12.50 with a meal, and you can get your beer to go in a 1- or 2-liter jug called a Siphon. The food is hearty, contemporary Saxon. When the weather is nice, enjoy the fantastic panoramic view of Dresden from the beer

Try the Altpieschener Spezialbier

The house beer is excellent - you can even buy it in 5 Liter casks and take it home as a souvenir! The food portions are huge and very tasty. The whole place is well worth a visit!
