Well away from the touristy centre of the city, we walked and thought we'd missed it, luckily we kept going and found it.
Corner bar with a few tables outside, inside is a front area with some upturned barrels and standing room around them. A single wooden barrel sits on the bar, the draught beer changes all the time.
Up a couple of steps and you are into the largest room, all wood, hanging hops and mugs/steins everywhere. It is non-smoking and popular with locals who seemed to eat here too.
The furnature is basic and wooden, there are some thin cushions, but they don't prevent piles from the benches and chairs.
As well as the constantly changing barrel they stock 18 bottled beers that are rarely found outside the local area, like:
Saur Brau (from Gunzerdorf) 'Schlukla', which is a smoked beer.
Neder (from Forchheim) 'Schwarze Anna'.
Every beer comes in a half litre stone stein unless you ask for a glass, which we didn't as I wasn't reviewing beers that day, just places.

This bar specialising in local beers is one of three in the Nuremburg area under the same name, and all have similar interiors. The other being on Rothenburger Strasse, and one in Furth. Basic wooden panelling, with little decor, plain wooden tables and chairs - maybe a little 'spartan' but clean and tidy. Outside seating on the pavement too.
They always have one beer on tap from a wooden barrel, the beer changes regularly and is usually a local 'kellar' beer - though on each visit, it has been nothing special - but good value and enjoyable.
They have a beer menu of about 20 beers in bottles, 15 are normally pils or lager styles or maybe a dunkel and 5 are Weiss beers. Plus a selection of schnapps.
The bottled beers are usually from local small breweries in the region and thus not available in local stores or other bars, making it an interesting choice. We had the OTT Weiss beer which was very good.
Don't be surprised if a waiter comes round with a tray of schnapps to tempt you with "happy hour prices!" We had some and it sure was good!
Service was good (though English was not generally spoken!) and the bar always busy with local drinkers, often playing cards or other games, and not full of tourists like us!
Worth a visit to try some different beers you may not see elsewhere, though note they only open in the evenings from 5pm and not during the day.
Visit the web site to see a list of beers usually available.
Wodanstrasse is some distance from the main Railway Station, but you can get Tram 9 from outside the station (in direction Doku Zentrum) and get off at Wodenstrasse stop, then turn left into Wodenstrasse and its one block along. Tram journey time is about 10 minutes.
