I’ve heard both rumors and direct "witness reports" that one of my favorite brewpubs, 7 Stern Bräu, which sorta served as Vienna’s more traditional style-wise balance to the modern craft experimentation at the 1516 Brewing, has undergone a change for the worse.

Some claim that they’ve changed the malts they use for their beers, and, for example, according to heavy, who’s been there, their Rauchbier, maybe the best outside of Bamberg, is not even a shade of its former self.

If that’s true, that’s a damn shame...

Only been there the once so can’t comment on quality comparison. The beers were okay, the service was terrible.

Been there the once myself in ’00 and wasn’t rating then so no notes on the beers. Remembered them being decent tho’.

Have had a few at recent tastings thanks to Scopey and must admit I haven’t been overly impressed.

As long as it’s not the 7 Stern Chilli. ;) But yeah the rauch was tasty.

They certainly have bottling issues. I haven’t been to the brewpub since around Dec ’11/Jan ’12, and at the time the beers I drank on site were fine. I’ve had a few bottles of their beer since then and the majority were infected.

stuff on site i had last month was spot on, especially the new rauch "extreme".

Hmm, interesting.

Well, I’ll definitely revisit it as I really like the place. Or their beers at least.

@Erik: hehehehehe, I remember that :D
