Founded in 1624, this brewery was once in the same family as Löwenbräu just next door but was sold in 2009 and seems to have made a smooth transition. It remains a family business, albeit a large one considering their reach around Franconia. It’s perhaps the most known Kellerbier in Franconia and quality remains high. It’s a credit to the town that two places of their size can not only exist but thrive, neighbors no less.  Both restaurants seem to do very well and both have rooms available. With all the beers you could sample, it’s certainly a worthwhile overnight stop.

The last time here, I had a wonderful duck breast with a massive dumpling in a great sauce.  There was a side of Wirsing, a creamed  savoy cabbage popular in Franconia and a nice departure from the more typical red cabbage generally served with duck.  I had the Kellerbier but also a Pils and a Landbier Dunkles from a bottle.  The latter two were good but must say, if you’re only having one, go for the Kellerbier!

Tasty duck & Dunkles
