Impression: Drinking Zoigl in a “Echte” Zoigl Stube has to be one of the great beer experiences and Oppl in Mitterteich is no exception. This was a one night stop en route to visit the wife’s family so got there a littler later than we’d have liked. It was packed so no spots outside where the band was playing a mix of jazz and traditional Bavarian music. A lot of spots inside were also full but we got a table close to the tap with a bit of fresh air from the large open door. It was a great atmosphere and the Zoigl went down easily, though it seemed a notch below both Luggerts and Hartwich in town. That said, we loved the place and simple food, with the Zoigl certainly still refreshing.
Care for another Zoigl?
