Bright spots in the beer factory

You might not know it, but not so long ago, Luma used to make light bulbs here by the docks. Now, when you cross the threshold into the remodelled factory, a completely different production is underway. On the wall in the entrance to the sparsely decorated but warm and cosy restaurant venue, you can see how the process of brewing beer works. In this building they make a number of excellent beers, as well as some creative fare. The delicious small clams have been boiled in their own Keller Bier, a malty pale lager, which was a singularly good idea. There are long tables for groups of spirited colleagues out for happy hour, and small tables for two. A brilliant beef tartare is beautifully presented with dabs of porcini cream, rings of pickled onions and crispy-crackly malt. The fried red shrimp enters on a rustic wooden board with a round dollop of mayo, spiced with Mexican Tajín. The burger is rightly a favourite, made with chuck steak, brisket, and marrow, and served with perfect fries. But can you drink beer with dessert? In a place where the focus is on beer, apple strudel fits like a glove. They serve it with hazelnut ice cream and a glass of Primus Lux, the first beer that was produced here. The strong, dark ale fits splendidly with the apple. The ever-present service staff do everything to make you comfortable and give you a little beer knowledge along with something good to eat...
