They have a vast variety of beer and even have a beer float for dessert. I would recommend the currywurst.

There are numerous bars along this section of Long Street, but the opportunity to sample from dozens of locally crafted beers attracted my attention. The main bar and restaurant is upstairs, it includes a narrow patio area but it’s hard to get a seat out there on a sunny day. But lots of room inside, and indeed, a well organized beer menu that groups beers according to style and whether it is available on tap or by the bottle. Went a couple of times, and like everywhere, some servers are very attentive and responsive, other seem to vanish and you’re left flagging down random servers in hopes of trying another beer. Every beer we had was far superior to the tasteless national brands offered everywhere in town. We only ate once, but it was good and we noticed there are some weekday specials that would have brought us back if we were i the area more often.

We came across the Beerhouse on a very hot Sunday lunchtime and stopped for a beer. The choice is great, but twice I made a selection from the beer menu that then wasn't available, which gets a bit tedious. Still, the beer I did try was great, and we had some very good hot wings to go with it. Lots of atmosphere and one of the best places to call in on Long Street.

Bad music, bad coctail, we just tried their fries and it was bad. Prices were very fair. Unless you really like beer (and only beer) or you're under 20, don't go there..

We had an amazing time at the beer house on Sunday. The barman made excellent beer recommendations and his service was exceptional. We spent most of the day there having beer and eating their great sandwiches. Thank you !
