Came here just after opening time, grabbed a beer at the counter and sat outside on a sunny October's day. Place filled up gradually, mostly with local pensioners. The Kellerbier from the barrel is hoppy and rustic, the Braunbier from the bottle chewy and complex, very good stuff. Service is efficient, with all the family helping out, and prices are quite cheap. Easily combined with a visit to Geisfeld and Schammelsdorf.
Really cozy and gemutlich place with some awesome beers which is amazing when served fresh from tap instead of a dusty bottle. Good Schnitzel and amazing Kellerbier from the wood. Close to Geisfeld and Bamberg!
Visited on 19/7/2012. This was a welcome stop on the walk from Buttenheim to Geisfeld. I sat in the typically Franconian, wood dominated bar, which was busy with local pensioners, workmen on their lunch break and a few English tourists. I enjoyed the Braun and Lagerbiers (at E2.00 each) and my plate of Zwetschgenbammes was truly excellent and great value at E5.00. The service was very good too. Hard to fault.

Beautiful little countryside brewery not too far from Bamberg. Their Keller is the real heartstopper, surrounded by cows, barns and in the shadow of huge trees. The brewery gasthaus is quite pleasant too, especially the summer terrace out front which allows you to gaze into sleepy, and quite photogenic, Rossdorf. The house brews can be excellent, especially their tap Lagerbier, bottled as Urbräu. Of course, the bottled version is not always as stunning, but the tap is perfection; a most süffig lager. All in all, this is one of my favorite brewery visits in Franconia. Quiet, quaint and quality all around.
