Ludwel is a small, but elegant, brewery restaurant that uses lots of real wood as decor and has an outdoor patio area. Its lighting, plants and quiet location create a relaxing and cozy atmosphere where guests can unwind, have a few beers and enjoy the evening breezes on the outside patio.

There are three types of beers brewed here--barley (NT$120 for 350 cc), rye (NT$150 for 350 cc) and a barley-rye mix (NT$150 for 350 cc). In addition to beers brewed in-house, they also carry imported beers from Germany. Their brewer's yeast is fermented at low temperatures to retain nutrients and rich flavors, also resulting in a creamy texture and very smooth finish, and it is recommended that this beer be consumed within a couple hours.

Ludwell also offers fruit beers, including cranberry, peach, grape and orange flavors, ideal for female consumers who often enjoy these fruitier-tasting beverages. When it comes to dining options here, the pasta, pizza and grilled or fried menu items all pair well with beers, not surprisingly.
