Visited July 2013. Sat out back in the rather plain patio with no real view. The beer wasnít up to much at all. Both the Helles and Dunkel were quite bland. Not a great first impression but Iíd probably give them another try if only to re-visit the pretty village of Pottenstein.

4 or 5 bottled beers. Cozy with a fine beergarden. 1 of Pottensteins 2 breweries. Pretty average overall.

World class beer, decent pub. Fairly standard village brewpub setup, with a small courtyard out the back which is nice despite the absence of greenery or a view like Hufeisen. Friendly locals, tasty food in large serves even by Franconian standards. And of course the beer. The fantastic beer. On top of that, bottled Mager Dunkel is just as good as the stuff on tap, so itís worth stocking up. There arenít many Franconian breweries you can say the same thing of.

Lovely old building. Tap is traditional. The terrace out back is nice in the sun, but offers no view of the gorgeous hills. Beerwise, I preferred the helles to the dunkles.

Pottenstein is a 2 brewpub village (this one and Hufeisen just down the road), so ideal for a lunchtime stop. Fairly standard, half-timbered Bavarian brewpub look. Pleasant place. Makes a wider range of beers than Hufeisen. Unfortunately, having spent longer than expected in Hufeisen because we got chatting to the proprietor, I only had time for the Dunkel here, which wasnít up to much. Didnít eat. Mager does bottle their beer so you should be able to pick up bottles here, or somewhere around the village, but we already had an excessive stock in the car so I didnít bother.

Average Brauereigasthof in the centre of Pottenstein: wooden tables, half-panelled walls, shelves with bottles, mugs and cups on the walls quite quick and friendly service the beers are good, so donít miss it, if You are around.......
