Sesslach is an amazing walled medieval town that surely surprises anyone that happens upon it. Better yet, it’s not anywhere near as touristy as other similar towns and if not for its interesting brewing history, it would have almost certainly eluded me. Easily reached by bus from Coburg, it’s well worth the trip.
This is a communal brewery dating back to 1335 and is still owned and is in use by the city. The beer is brewed here but supplied to two of the town’s pubs, which are listed below. I was here in 2003 and must admit to not remembering much to distinguish the two places. I believe we ate at the Roter Ochse and the food was great. The beer is the same in both places so if pressed for time, you don’t really need to visit both. They both have rooms and though we didn’t have time for it, an overnight stop here would be quite enjoyable.
