Impression: The first time I made it to this new upmarket brewpub I’d had fairly low expectations but was pleasantly surprised by the beer. This time through, it wasn’t going to catch me by surprise and it was coming after climbing the mountain that graced its logo, the Kofel. The hike was amazing and the beer proved to be up to task to not only living up to my first impression but also to the hike.
This is one of my favorite Kellerbiers in southern Bavaria but my favorite beers hail from Franconia.
