Visited March 2012. Mixed feelings here as the food and atmosphere were very good while the beer fell short of expectations. There was a main room with tan wood paneling and furniture, and another smaller room off of it. The service was good as I tasted my way through some of their range. The Ungespundet Lager was metallic, the Dunkles bland, the Fastentrunk Bock sweet, and the Rauschla confusingly (for me anyway) was not a smoke beer but the filtered version of the Lager, and astringent. The best beer was probably the bottled Weis. Worth a visit I guess, not least for the food. The rather infrequent Bus 927 runs from Bamberg and stops across from the brewery in this pretty village.

Smashing little countryside brewery not too far from Bamberg by bus (or bike). Very friendly waitress, beautiful setting under huge chestnut trees, overlooking a barn, a tiny church and a few houses. Old locals were slowly walking from every direction as they starting serving people on a weekday afternoon. Their Ungespundetes is a fantastic hoppy quencher and their Dunkel Landbier gorgeous too. One of my favorite Franconian countryside brewery experiences.

Last stop on our brewery bicycle tour from Bamberg and might have been my favorite. It was Saturday and there was an octogenarian playing in a one-man-band (had guitar, harmonica, and sang through karaoke machine with synth drum tracks) working his way through old favorites like "Take Me Home, Country Roads." The service was very good and I liked the beers. Big biergarten.

We rode out bikes into town in 90 F heat and stopped off at Knoblach in hopes of having a refreshing, cold pint. Funny thing happened, me with my terrible German, I tried to order two beers, and also ask what kind they had available. I was told three kinds, I picked two, handed the lady a 50 euro note, and she returned with change and a receipt for two cases. Strike one. After straightening that one up, she tells me that they have no taps (strike two) as they are broken or inoperable or maybe they just donít exist - I donít really know because I donít hear German as well as I can read it, obviously. I give the host credit for trying to help me, though. So we go with two bottles, a new dunkel and a ungespundet lagerbier, but we donít get glasses, strike three, so we sit and drink them from the bottle, which we didnít mind at all, and both of them were really excellent. We only stayed for about 30 minutes but it was a fun experience and the beer quality is worth traveling for.

A fine, typical franconian Brauerei-Gasthof with a shady (or sunny) beer-garden in front of the whole complex in the center of that tiny village of Schammelsdorf (not Schlammersdorf !!!). The friendly owner will answer Your questions about his excellent Bier. Worth a visit !
