a gem of a store - likely the best selection of Franconian beer in one location. rows of crates, each bottle is about 80 cent euro, with most organized by style, and seasonal bock bier located at the front. a lot of glassware and steinkrugs to purchase, as well as shirts and bags and whatnot. we were able to purchase a 20-bottle cardboard box for 3 euro to fill up and check home.
What a great store! Rows of beer from small regional breweries. It’s crazy to think that 5 crates of beer would only set you back a little over €100 - such good value. The glassware and mugs adorn a whole wall. It’s a great place to kill some time and pick up a good selection to go.
This review is based on online order and delivery. Rather good selection of nice Franconian beers from the small breweries. The prices are not the cheapest but the freight was very affordable. No problems with the delivery. Unfortunately everything wasn’t that great. They had replaced three bottles with other beers (not that interesting ones) without asking. I could consider ordering again but it’s not my first choice.

A little bit hidden in a backyard, not far away from the "Hauptbahnhof" (main railway station) in Nürnberg: the "Landbierparadies" (lit.: paradise of rural beers); a store, that offers a fine collection of several franconian microbrewers, which are in "normal" shops or supermarkets only hard to find; the permanent selection is rounded by attractive seasonals. A must, when You are in Franconia, worth a journey !
Selection is out of this world if you are looking for Franconian countryside brews which you weren’t able to get during your travels in the region. Prices are extremely cheap (13 500ml bottles for... 11 euros!) and all dates I checked on labels showed that they maintain fresh crates only. It is a little walk from the station away from the altstadt, but it more than delivers what you came here for.
An excellent selection of Franconian beers from small producers. Prices are very reasonable and the service is efficient. Revisited 9/7/2011. The beer range had been widened which meant every beer I bought was from a brewery new to me. I agree with SBS’ point that there isn’t a great deal of information on offer, with the beer split between wheat, bio and others and a few specials hidden by the counter.
Holy fucking shit. This is a landbier paradise. Racks of weizen for 13,50 euro and other beer racks for 11 or 12 euro if I remember correctly. We showed up and asked for one of everything in the store and the employees were very helpful in making sure we didn’t get duplicates and that we were taken care of. In total, we walked out of the store with six racks of completely different, small Franconian brewery beers- probably one of weizenbier, one of pils, four of kellerbier and helles- and after taxes and pfand, our total bill for six racks of beer was 102,00 euro. Fuck yeah. The glass collection was out of this fucking world. Masskrug from many of these tiny breweries around Franconia. I nearly shit my pants when I walked in, to be honest. I hope to be back in the future.
Best one-stop shopping for Keller/Zwickel/Landbier - Have a nice selection of other local beer styles all separated and as with most German Getraenkemarkts, you can buy singles of all the beers. There are a few parking spots out front (which for the area is very nice) - you will want to drive here or at least take a Taxi.
I have been to this shop in person and also ordered from the online store and in both cases have been impressed. Sadly the online selection does not change too much but there is still quite a lot to keep tickers busy plus there is some real quality too. Maybe it is my memory playing tricks on me but I believe the physical shop has more beers than are available in the online store.
