Zoigl. I have seen the occasional bottle of commercial Zoigl in Franconia but I haven’t been impressed with the ones I’ve tried. First off, it’s not a beer suited for bottling. Zoigl is an entire culture and resides in its purest form in the Upper Palatinate, a region of Bavaria right next to Franconia. To get into detail here wouldn’t make sense but if interested, please read my Brief History of Zoigl in Time.
tasty Zum Roud’n Zoigl
a tasty Zoigl at Kramer-Wolf
Zoigl is a way of life as much as a beer
Next beer Zwickel or back to Beer Styles.

I'm an American living in Munich. Why? Well, I came for the beer but stayed for the girl. I'm very happily married to a German woman. Of course, the bonus of great beer certainly doesn't hurt. An avid love of hiking and finding new beers has led me to found beerwanderers, an information resource on beer hiking trails in Franconia with an emphasis on Franconian food specialties and the endless variety of amazing beer the region is renowned for. I also just published my first book Beer Hiking Bavaria which features 50 beer hikes in Bavaria. View all posts by beerwanderers
