|I suppose if you're reviewing a place from Ratebeer or Beeradvocate, then, " A brewery is judged on the quality of its beer. " would be justified. I do agree with you, however, that there is a substantial difference between living there and visiting there occasionally and that your attitude is probably quite well justified.|
IAC, as an occasional visitor, I much prefer a gaststätte or brewery that provides more than just good beer. Over the years that I've come to Bavaria, there are probably 10 or 20 places that I've visited and where I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being there. In fact, the first time I went to a Zoigl pub in Mitterteich it was almost like a dream becoming real. Something I still remember. Some years ago, I brought an old American friend of mine to another Zoigl pub (in Neuhaus) and he didn't like the beer or the experience.
As my father used to say: "De gustibus non disputandum est."
