Probably the finest beer stop in Bavaria. Very personal service with a nice tour of the old brewery. We all had the schnitzel for dinner which was made with spent grains and it was unbelievable. The beer was out of this fucking world. Un-fucking-believable. You haven’t been on a German beer tour until you’ve come here. Thank you again, Andres!

I am very happy, next week i go back to Germany and will enjoy the fine beer and food, the good service and the very friendly Andi and Manu Gänsstaller. We spend every year our vacation near Bamberg and we go for years to the Zoiglstube, former by Beck and nou by Drei Kronen at Strassgiech. We cant wait to come back.
Greetings from Frank and Diana
We went back at 3 Kronen , the beer and food was the same high quality level as we known , Manu & Andi are the same warm, friendly and hard working people as alltime and the only bad thing we found is that Strassgiech is so far away from my hometown Waddinxveen, so we have to wait to next summer for our next Zoiglstubeexperience.
Yeah Zoiglstube rocks!!!!!!!!!!!
Can’t put it into words. Perhaps the best beer in Germany at the moment, brewed and served by one of the most humble, friendly and genuine people I’ve ever met in the industry. And the food was legitimately some of the best I’ve ever had in Germany. Barley malt-crusted schnitzel hell yes.
Sorry I made mistake updating my review .. This is the latest one.. We visited Andreas at mid afternoon he was waiting a 50 guys coach with amaricans beers tourists ... We had one Keller , one bock and one schnitzel .. All of them amazing with the bock on the top of the table .. Hoppy and citrus ... I don’t have more words to spend about Andreas who is always a good hosteller and a humble guy .. He has welcomed us in a fantastic way and he knows what I’m talking about ...

Two magical experiences so far, and it sounds like I may not have many more opportunities to do so due to their lease ending in Dec 2013. Easily among the best brewers in Germany (and the world, for that matter), Andreas Gänstaller is not only friendly and humble, most of his beers are 4.5 to 5.0 quality...just jaw-dropping, and the only beers to date that have ever brought literal tears to my eyes. Charming small town, charming little pub, and really friendly/kind staff. Only a few beers are available at any given time, but the quality more than makes up for that. Truly a peerless brewer and one of the top beer destinations in the world.
What a place! Our best Schnitzel during 4 days i Franken and an awesome Zoigl beer. Andreas Ganstaller showed us the museum brewery and we got to try some of the last drops of the Dark smoked Marzen. We also happened to meet by chance Frank Wetzel (Bierregion-Franken) Nice guy. I will return sometime in the near future. Thats for sure! (Visited April 27th 2012)
When there they only had their keller and a weissbier from another brewery, but Andreas was so kind to let me try his Green Gold IPA, the Quator and the Smoked Märzen. The garden is nice, the food is awesome and the staff is very friendly and nice (I never saw so many nice waitress all together!).
Both food and beer were outstanding. All in my group were extremly satisfied. The brewer himself came and showed us the historic beer celler with old brewery equipment. We also were introduced to some of his beer pals. A must visit! I have never tried such good beer my life.
Dunno why, but is somehow forgot to rate this place. Visited 2 times august 2012 and had a grand time at both visits. Great food, better beer, actually they are top class, and mostly of all a very friendly and personal welcome and service by Andreas and his wife. While looking though the food menu i had a question about one dish, then went to order something else. We had our starters and then a little later Andreas came to our table with a freshly cooked small sample of the dish i asked him about earlier so that i could try that aswell. Second night he tooks us around the old brewery and cellar. Great value for money. Outstanding place, a must go if in the area. Thanks Andreas!
