Much like Lieberth’s just a few steps away, Rittmayer has their brewery and a nice restaurant in the actual village of Hallerndorf but most head out to the Keller when the weather is fine and for good reason: great food and beer in an idyllic setting.  With a bigger variety of dishes and beers, Rittmayer draws more people then their little neighbor but it never seems hectic.

I had a great Schäuferla here and that’s saying a lot as perhaps the best one I’ve ever had was just a 15 minute walk away at Roppelt’s Keller.

The brewery has an additional number of seasonal and specialty beers along with an intriguing beer calendar:

Weißbierfest (2nd weekend in August)
Kirchweih (2nd to the last weekend in October)
Bockbierfest (End of October)
Winterweizenfest (2 weeks before Christmas)
