Impression: This was my first Lower Franconian communal brewery experience after a couple of years gnawing at the bit and purely a stroke of luck when a friend who lives in the area was accepted as a member. While getting a tour of the brewery, we were offered to have a very young Vollbier from the tank. The brewer explained it was quite a ways from ready and it sure was a lively pour with a massive rocky chiffon like head. It was still a little yeasty but nicely balanced with a nice grainy element and fair hopping. I hope to have the mature version at their Oktoberfest in a few weeks. We then stopped by his house and drank a more matured lower octane Kellerbier from Krugs and it was a lovely soft brew with an even more balanced palate. It had the unmistakable taste of Franconia, a walk in the countryside in a Krug. It was a nice session beer and we had a few. To offset costs, they accept donations and I paid what I would in a similar village pub. The experience was priceless.

Back to the beer list.
