Really authentic brewpub in the brewpub strip. I reckon this was the best of them. Stale air, smoke, drunk old guys, excellent beer, friendly staff and brewer. I dunno how to describe this place really.. Its just so incredibly German you have to go and drink some beers here. Awesome.
Visited with SinH4 and CS. One room place with a serving bar. Cheery outgoing waitress serving a roomful of dour old men who went to extraordinary lengths to avoid eye contact with us, merely turning their empty steins on their side to signal their continued thirst. The single tap beer was very tasty, exceeding our expectations. Worthwhile stop suggested by SinH4.

Visited with Travlr. The local spot for beer in Forchheim. The beer on tap is very good, the place filled with locals, standard Franconian quality. Quite a few beers available. Definitely recommended!
Pretty good spot. Very decent selection of beers available on tap and in bottle, of good quality. This place seems to be a popular locals hangout. Large, traditional interior. Pretty good value, fine service. Worth a visit if you find yourself in Forchheim.
The is a place with a very rough feeling on a weekday afternoon. Presumably retired and unemployed men are hanging out putting a buzz on. A woman might be scared to go alone--hell, I was. It is definitely worth a visit, though, to get the feel of the Franken underbelly. The kellerbier in bottle was very good. Sadly the Export from gravity wasn’t.
Goes immediately into my all time top 50! Great 50s/60s style basic boozer with clientele and ambiance to match. The service is efficient and charmingly brusque. Bring your own food, talk to the locals and sup the delicious cheap beer. What more can a man want? As for some of the negative reviews on here, I guess they just don’t get it!
