If you think when you've seen one German beerhall you've seen 'em all then avoid Päffgen -- nothing about the long rows of tables in the main room, the stripped-pine tabletops and the bustling blue-clad waiters says anything different. But if you're a conoisseur of such places then this is one of the best.

The views of Cologne in the stained glass windows are a treasure, and there's some interesting artwork up on the walls. The food menu is extensive, and though only the house kölsch is available, it's pretty much the best of the lot -- freshly hopped and insanely drinkable from the wood cask.

It was fairly quiet on the afternoon I visited so service was very attentive. You don't want to be waiting too long for a fresh stange.

Paffgen alongside Malzmuhle are my top two Kolsch hausbrauereis. Away from the river, just out the back door from the Marriott you'll find Paffgen.

A classic tavern front and interior with a door out the back to small and congenial garten that overlooks the small brewery behind. Still rolling out beer in wooden fass barrels, the place is everything you want in a Kolsch House. The beer is pale straw coloured with a spicey quality that is a fine quaff (Mahlzmuhle is a bit less spicey with a malt quality that has touches of fennel and caramel).

The 'kobies' are appropriately surly, not a television in the place, just the hum of conversation and clinking glasses. Perfect. The beer selection is nominal but their's is all you need to drink.
