Impression: While Kitzmann is no longer a brewery, I had only been there once and really enjoyed the food and the beer was better than I’d imagined. Sadly, it closed not so long after that visit but friends had been and said it hadn’t changed. So, when spending the night in Erlangen in the summer of 2020, we ventured over for dinner. The place hadn’t changed a bit and the regular beers were mostly still featured. The only “new” beer I saw was one called Original. I figured I’d give it a try and out came a good looking unfiltered amber beer. It was easy to drink and very balanced but it lacked any real character. I’d stick with the Kellerbier or Pils next time I go and since it’s no longer a brewery, that won’t be unless I happen to be in Erlangen.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
