Spent the night here. Everything alright with the brewery, beers, room... Can’t complain.

We spent a night here during a trip to Franconia. A classic Franconian brewpub. We also had their beers before going to bed on a Saturday night - their beers are, in my opinion, a bit underrated on ratebeer. The son of the owner, who is a brewer, identified us and came to sit and chat. We had a nice experience, and the overnight stay was very reasonably priced.
We just came to get some beer and weren’t disappointed. One of the brewery workers, who was bottling came back with a sixpack filled with different Kraus beers. I’m sure I’ll be back to try the beers and the food again.
Visited around 6pm on the last Friday of April ’12. Kraus is an easy 5 minute walk from the Hbf.
The brewery is on site and is located around the biergarten.
The weather was good on our visit so biergarten it was and it quickly filled up with locals during our hour or so here.
Beers are obtained, promptly, from a serving hatch on the pub side.
All the usual styles on offer includingba decent rausch.
One of the brewery workers who had just clocked off came and sat with us and talked beer.
Well worth a stop off if youre taking the train between Nurenberg and Bamberg, good atmosphere, decent beer and friendly locals.
Visited July 2013. The bar/restaurant inside was closed and everyone was sitting outside in the very pleasant biergarten. The largish, coppery brewery is on show behind windows and it looked like they had brewed on the day as there was some spent grains outside near a tractor, probably waiting for the farmer to show up. While I was there the skies opened up mit donner und blitzen appearing forcing me to move under a marquee. Everything is great about this place except the beer. The Lager and the Hirschentrunk were a strange mixture of diacetyl and DMS that was fairly appalling. I passed on the Pils to try the Hefeweizen; a good choice no doubt as this was typical but quite good.There is a good selection of beer available for takeaway, if you dare.
Visited a couple of times with my parents. Large brauhaus, easy to get to and parking within walking distance. Beers served in god condition, friendly staff. They do food as well. We had sausages and apfelstrudel :-).. It is possible to buy bottles to take away.

a sad place for beer in Franconia, and maybe the poorest beer from any brewery on this trip. the space is nice, very typical for the region. antlers and beer crocs and other masculine things, with lots of pork and potatoes on the menu. it was busy, too, but had a certain Bavaria-redneck feel to it (like an Upper Palpatine pub but without the "drol-lo-lo-lol" accent). I mean, I’m sure I saw a German in here wearing a track suit, and that’s usually only something you see within 20 miles of the Czech border. the beer was AWFUL too. diacetyl and DMS warning. ah, I’m sure they were just having an off-year.
