Our mill mustard and our mill beer don't have far to go!

Some of the food and drinks that we produce in our mill and in our mill brewery can be found on the menu of our Brauhaus restaurant. And you can enjoy our food and drinks in a relaxed, pleasant restaurant atmosphere.

On the way from the brewery and the mustard mill to the restaurant:

Our Mühlenbier is not only a popular drink, it is also a "regular" in the restaurant kitchen!

We don’t just brew the tasty Mühlenbier, we also use it as a tasty ingredient in our dishes.

… in homemade brewer’s grains bread, baked from leftover barley malt and served as a starter with crackling lard

… with fresh chicken from the grill, marinated in beer stock

… with the brewery pan, which is served with Erwin’s beer brew sauce.

… with the delicious apple rings in beer batter.

Our spicy mill mustard is also available in the restaurant kitchen!

The finely spiced mill mustard is not only produced in our mustard mill, it is also used as a tasty ingredient in our dishes.

You can find our Mühlen mustard among other things …

"This is what the Eifel tastes like!"

Typical Eifel specialties are of course a must at the Birgeler Brauhaus Restaurant!

We would like to briefly introduce you to two culinary Eifel specialties: Eifel bread pudding and Döppekooche!

Eifel bread pudding

This Eifel dessert recipe dates back to earlier times, when the aim was to use stale bread in a sensible and, above all, tasty way. This is how the bread came to be mixed into the pudding to give it a strong flavor. So much for the history of the Eifel bread pudding, which we have now “revived” as a dessert in our Brauhaus restaurant.

Eifel Döppekooche

Döppekooche is another typical and traditional Eifel specialty on our menu. For non-Eifel or non-Rhineland people, Döppekooche can be translated as pot cake. “Döppe” means pot and “Kooche” is the cake. Döppekooche used to be a dish for the simple, poorer people. Today it is a popular specialty of Eifel cuisine.

Together with friends it tastes even better in the Brauhaus Restaurant!

And it will be even more sociable and fun!

Experiencing the mill, the mill brewery and the brewery restaurant together with friends or in a great group is a wonderful experience that each individual will not soon forget. The historic mill ambience is the perfect setting and the perfect destination for your family outing, group outing, club outing or company outing!

Well then, cheers and bon appétit!

Our jewel of outdoor gastronomy

The brewery beer garden

Up to 150 guests can enjoy our home-brewed Mühlenbier and delicious specialties from the Brauhaus Restaurant kitchen in the open air. It’s not just the delicious food and tasty drinks that pamper our guests, the wonderfully fresh Eifel country air also helps our guests to feel completely at ease.

Even bad weather doesn’t have to stop you from visiting the brewery beer garden. You are well protected from wind and weather, as we have covered the beer garden ourselves.

When our grill master fires up the mill grill …

… then the open-air enjoyment spectacle in the brewery beer garden can begin!

Then nothing stands in the way of a cozy and relaxing beer garden experience. The best thing to do is to set off straight away. Our employees are already looking forward to meeting you!

So that you can find us!
