|In my experience, Altstadthof can be very hit and miss.|
Balkon is always worth a quick visit before or after your train. Next to the Frauentorturm, opposite the Hbf. It's outdoor and operates on a similar principle to the bierkellers but is usually open all day in spring, summer and early autumn even if it's raining. Nikl Bräu beers amongst others.
Barfüßer is really only worth it if you want to tick breweries.
Although it does feel like a 'craft beer bar', Bierwerk is well worth a look. It's the tap for little-known Bierwerk brewery in Günthersbühl, most of whose beers are made by Dreykorn, but the Werkbier is brewed in house. They sell plenty of other beer, too, including Honig Bräu (Nürnberg, not Hönig Tiefenellern) when I visited last month.
I'm not a massive fan of Hütt'n (too touristy) but it has a reasonable range of beers, sometimes including their own Burgbräu.
Kater Murr is handy for the Hbf and good for Orca beers.
Landbierparadies solid but mostly bottles - go for the draught beer from the wood.
As stated, Mr Kennedy is very good but only opens from 20.00 Wednesday to Saturday. The owner brews his special beers in the pub kitchen using a Braumeister but the regular stuff (Der Franke) is made elsewhere (Binkert, I think).
Schanzenbräu Schankwirtschaft is very good.
Cafe Wanderer is excellent but tiny. Go when dry as you can then sit outside and admire the view.
