Founded in 1788, this is very much a family concern that has expanded become very much a regional favorite.  Though their beer is available around the area, there’s no better place to drink it than at the source or their nearby Wagner-Keller.

Though I’ve had their beer in bottle form often had been at their Keller, I finally got to the brewery recently and was very happy with the experience.  It was a cool night so sitting in their small but atmospheric Biergarten was out of the question. The interior was old wood cozy and the site of two gravity dispense kegs were a sight for sore eyes.

I got their Lagerbier that was served via gravity dispense and in great form and went well with a nice and ample mixed meat plate.

My wife got their equally tasty Pils, also on gravity dispense so with a great soft plate. She enjoyed her Bratwurst, too. We ended with their Rauchbier, called Kuckuck, which was quite good if a bit too carbonated after the gravity brews.
