Barfüßer is a short walk from the Bahnhof through the Füßgängerzone. Today's lunch crowd was rather older, but also rather boisterous, so they were all fun to watch. The bar upstairs, colocated with the brewhouse, seemed geared toward a younger clientele. The Schwarzbier was quite tasty, as was the Schweinshax'n (€7,80) which absolutely enormous.

Beers sell for €2,30-2,40 for a 0.3-liter glass, and €2,90-3,00 for a half-liter. They also have lots of different ways for you to take their beer home with you: one-liter bottles, two-liter "Kanne", five-liter "Party Dose", and three different sizes of kegs.

They have the neatest painting on the wall: Albert Einstein as a homebrewer. Ulm being Einstein's hometown, I asked if there was a museum or monument nearby, but the bartender said no. That's a shame.
