Blue Scrumpy left this review about Alberts Schloss

Albert's Schloss is a large drinking barn type of place that also caters for diners. In fact, on my Sunday morning visit, most people were there for food.

On arrival, I somehow evaded the front podium where I later spotted a member of staff allocating tables. Instead, I made a bee line to the large almost oval-shaped bar towards the rear of the room. There are a number of T-bars around the bar, but all stock the same range of lagers and a couple of other drink options. Large boards also list the range of lagers and their provenance. The list comprised of Pilsner Urquell, Stiegl Goldbrau, Paulaner, Erdinger, Pravha, Spaten Oktoberfest, Lowenbrau, Krombacher, Hofbrau Lager & Oktoberfest, Hacker Pscorr Oktoberfest, Fruli Strawberry & Thatcher's Ambr.

Until spotting the cider (which appears to be a new brand), I was really struggling to know what to order, as I didn't want a lager. I was even contemplating the schnapps selection. The drinks range is far more inferior to the nearby Albert's Schenke. However, the prices are just as steep. Ordering a half, I nearly collapsed with shock at the price, until I realised that the barmaid had served me a schooner instead of the half I'd asked for. Apparently they don't serve halves.

The interior is a large open-plan affair with an upstairs balcony also having seating and from where you can look down on proceedings. There is also a separate smaller bar in the front right-hand corner.

I can't say I'll ever be back to this place. It would need to stock a larger array of decent beers to get me interested. However, it's central location in the main shopping area and opposite the side entrance to Liverpool Central station, should always ensure a decent throughflow of customers.

After visiting the Albert Schenke, we thought we'd give this one a try. We've walked past the Birmingham one on several occasions and never ventured in.
The space they occupy now was a former Gas showroom, back in the day.
My initial surprise in here was the size of the place, with a large central bar area, stage area and a balcony section over on the right. The beer board had a good mix of German, Czech, and a couple of English beers on keg. I didn't really take any notice of the pricing and ordered two half pints of Erdinger. This came to a grand total of £8, I questioned this and was told a pint is £6 and the halve measures are £4 each. Anyway, the in house music was excellent and atmosphere equally as good.

Large new bright and shiny beer barn. Open plan with a large central island bar plus a smaller bar to your right on entering. Plenty of fizz-u-likes on the bar but no real ale. Tables everywhere including one with a roaring fire in the middle. The main bar has bar stool seating all around making trying to get served a bit of a pain in the arse. It's all a bit, well, crap to be honest.
