In August 2014 the gravity barrel Lagerbier was one of the highlights of the week, juicy and bright and hoppy. A return visit on a Saturday afternoon in November 2014 found the Lagerbier in terrible shape, nothing whatsoever like the splendid barrel we had before. I mentioned this to Stephan and he pulled some to taste and agreed, said it was likely a late fill from the tank, biggest impression of autolyzed yeast I’ve ever experienced! Still he served it and folks drank it, which isn’t a big deal for most, but imagine someone walking in for a first try and finding such a "legendary" beer in awful shape. That’s how it goes in Franconia, of course.
The Export from keg was as fine as always, and the Weihnachtsbock we tasted from the tank was superb at 8 weeks.
I left with bottles of the Lagerbier filled a few days before and found the hop character dull, and it contained some unpleasant DMS. Inconsistency is the name of the game, no different in Franconia than anywhere else, but some beers and breweries seem more inconsistent than others. Cross your fingers next visit that you find the barrel bright and hoppy.

Quiet little place in a very rural area like most good lagerbier spots. Service was very courteous and locals that where there were friendly. We ordered a lagerbier each and sat outside. Beautiful authentic place. A nice way to start our trip in Franconia.

First stop on the Franconian portion of our trip. Beautiful scenery, quaint little town as is typical in the area. There is a brewery and restaurant, with a large garden space in between where you can sit and enjoy your beers. We were heartily welcomed, and although our host did not speak any English, she was very happy to serve us some lagerbier from the cask that was fresh and delicious. The cost was on par for the area, 2 euros a half liter. Several locals were driving by to pick up crates and we inquired if it was possible to buy some bottles to go to which they said no problem, even for singles. Very pleasant experience, maybe a bit removed from a lot of the places in the region but easy to get to by car.

In my opinion one of the most true , fair, friendly and typical brewpub in Bavaria .. Small and cosy we cane in around 4 o’clock and the place was packed of old people that looked at us like they were looking at some aliens .. But in a funny way and they were happy to see such young people in there (I’m 36) ... They had an lagerbier from the woodbarrell that was simply fantastic one in my personal top 3 of the 4days trip in bamberg and around ... I did not get any food but some guest was eating some wuster that looked very good .. The other beer was on tap I think and was the export .. We did not tried it because the lager was too good fir changing ... A great place I think under rated till now ...we even enjoyed a little typical Bavarian gig with the all the people singing in local dialect ..!!!

Small, cozy Gasthaus and nice beer-garden in the yard between the tavern and the relatively big (by franconian standards) brewery. Popular with locals, worth a visit......

Although there was no patio, we were allowed to sit outside and have our beer there. Lovely view at the lively beer trade. Loads of locals picked up their crates and small barrels for home use. A good sign and not surprisingly, the beer is quite OK.
