Höfen

Very small village with a very small brewery that it seems to draw the entire surrounding area to Sunday lunch. It was a bit of a gray if pleasant walk, past an old mill and some scenic old beer cellars to the unassuming place.  If it hadn’t been my birthday, I’m not sure my wife would have done it on such a cold day but after it was all said and done, she thought it was well worth it, too.

Founded in 1775, this small brewery barely produces enough beer to supply the small village and it seems everyone in the vicinity comes here for Sunday lunch. It’s a bit of a walk from the station and unless you’re spending the night, the bus probably won’t help you out much but it’s well worth the trip. The food is amazing and great value. The beer is pure magic.

We both had the Schäuferla and it was huge and tender beyond words. I noticed a women next door had an advertisement up for rooms. I hope to one day take her up on her offer.
