Founded in 1602, the brewery was sold in 1895 and has been in the same family now for four generations. It was voted the best small brewery in the world by an American magazine quite a few years ago and gained some notoriety from that but it’s always been popular with the locals who come to down their Pils and U in quantities.

The atmosphere at Mahrs is bustling and the low wooden beamed ceiling of the main taproom is picturesque and cozy.  The food is great, too. I’ve had quite a few great meals here including a very tasty Biergulasch and pork loin.

Mahrs has lots of great beers and are noted for their Pils, well worth having if it’s on gravity dispense, generally after 5 PM. Their session beer is called U and it’s an unfiltered low carbonation quaffer.

Just back from another stop at Mahrs and enjoyed their Bock which was served from the wooden barrel and was in great form.
