Founded in 1422, Rittmayer is by far the largest of the Hallerndorf area breweries. It’s just on the other side of the river but their restaurant is on Hallerndorf’s main street, not far from Lieberths. They specialize in Greek food but also have some of the Franconian standbys. Unlike Lieberths Gasthaus, it is open year-round. I’ve only managed a quick stop when waiting for a bus. I took a shot of the empty interior and though a little kitschy, it’s homey enough. I sat outside and drank a Landbier hell. It was nice to see its golden hue as I’ve only had it in a Krug at the Kellers.

I recently picked up a bottle of their 1422 Festbier while in Forchheim. It wasn’t anything exceptional but a fair example of the style. I’d try it on tap if I saw at the pub or Bierkeller..

Beers on tap: Rittmayer Landbier hell, Rittmayer Weizen.
