Visited en famille JUN2018. - A very modest place with sparely lit rooms and small back patio without much of a view, well-filled in late Vormittag by locals, slowly bustling with locals renewing their cases of Vollbier. Older couple serving in their own time, younger brewer slightly suspicious of oversharing with the nosey outsiders. Visiting this with a 2yr old and older parents for whom places like this were once an ordinary way to stay hydrated does help to put the lasting quality (but also modern romanticised views) in perspective.
I like the guy who lives near the brewery who reviewed this and said that the lager is barely above average. LMAO. Was with my wife and kid and wife thought best beer of Germany trip was Seinshimer, until she tried the Vollbier here. I stil would go with Seinshimer but this is a close #2. World class lager all the way and that is trying a lot of lager in a lot of countries. The place is beyond dead when we visited on a hot July afternoon, but were treated nicely by the owner and prices were dirt cheaper. This place deserves the hype just for the vollbier
Visited 6.10.17. Basic and quiet place, in an almost eery way. Looks more like a converted living room than a pub, with an old radio and a piano that are sure not there for decoration or ambiance. We arrived early in the afternoon and spent about 40 minutes there. One table was occupied by the village elderly and the other with 2 young men and 2 little girls who were drinking juice and given candy by the woman who tended the place. Beer was good, nothing exceptional, one tap and one bottle.
Let´s get this straight. We live only 10 minutes away and never understood the hype. Neither do the owners. There are dozends of outstanding brews in short distance. Somebody must have started this and all other follow. Their regular Lager is is not more than average. Their Keller (at least for 3 years now only by bottle) is a bit more attractive. But that´s it. All the reports about their beer at the Keller are outdated. They cannot find anybody who rents it. The family are honest people who are not willing to attract new customers. Sorry.
Cozy traditional place with very low prices. The beer was enjoyable, but the light was a little dark and everything else was very basic.

Finally, we have made our way here. A traditional place that seems to be packed with only male locals, and maybe a table of tourists which have heard of the incredible quality of Witzgall beer. I was lucky enough to have had their beer before, but it is just an incredible experience to have it here. Witzgall Vollbier and Landbier really are two of the best Lagers in the world - and this is why you come here, therefore the full score for selection. Crates to take away are ridiculously cheap (11 Euros, excluding deposit). Enjoy this place while you still can.
Ambiance - Smaller German brewpub only visited by local regulars watching that evenings football game when we visited. A fairly rough first impression gave way once we had ordered our beers and sat down. Service - Friendly but a bit shy. The propreitor followed us out for a very short chat when the locals weren’t watching. He seemed a bit surprised some Swedish tourists had found their way to his pub. Selection - One beer on tap and it was a good one! Food - Did not eat. Value - Very fair. Additional comments - I’ll never forget the silence of 10 rowdy locals when we opened the door and entered the place. In no way hostile yet very much telling us to either leave at once or order a beer and sit down. After that was done they went back to their business.
Visited on an early Saturday evening during Euro 2016. Games were shown on tv. Kinda interesting atmosphere as we entered, the group of 8 germans visiting turned all silent for a long time as we entered, and did not go back to their conversation until we had ordered our beers. The Witzgall beer was amazing, service was kinda nice, in that special german way...
