Welde Brewery Tastes and Tours

There isn’t any shortage of places to enjoy a beer this time of year; but, indulge me, I’m about to throw out one more suggestion. Welde Brewery, in Plankstadt opens the doors to their beer garden and facility on the first Sunday of every month (April-December).

Open on Sundays

Admittedly, my timing for this particular event always seems to be, well frankly, terrible. The first time we tried to visit Welde we weren’t aware of the “first Sunday of the month” opening, so we showed up on a lovely spring Saturday and were disappointed to find the place locked down. After (mis)reading the sign, we showed up the next month, again on a Saturday, and were similarly bummed out. So most of the joy on our recent visit was due to the fact that I got it right!

Beers and Food

The beers were as delicious as anticipated, and we snacked on Bratwurst and French fries while enjoying a couple of rounds.

I stuck with the classic No 1 Pils, but we noticed many of the people around us opted for the Welde-made Natur Radler and the Natur Stoff craft beer. It’s clear the place is built for large parties; there is lots of seating and multiple bars. On a nice day, this is definitely a great spot to be.
