Founded in 1579, this has been in the same family for over 500 years. Though the beers are available readily in the area, the brewpub itself remains an unassuming small place. It has come under new management and sounds very well run now. It was a one-room boozer on my first visit and was similar my last time there a few years ago. Looking forward to checking it out to see if there is an expanded menu. When there in 2012, my wife had a nice enough Schnitzel and my Bratwurst were good, as well. I’ve had a few of the bottled seasonals which impressed me more than their draft Helles.

Returned in November 2019 on a Monday afternoon only to find it closed due to what sounded a serious illness in the family. I got back in late May 2020 just after COVID-19 restrictions were somewhat lifted to find a sign on the door saying it would reopen on June 4th. Since it was a gorgeous day, I went up to the Hebendanz Keller. I had another plate of great Bratwurst and their Kellerbier to wash them down.

With Brauerei Eichhorn set to close, I stopped by the only other brewery pub in town which has food only to find there was no food that day. It was a Tuesday lunch slot so in March so hopefully, it was just bad timing. At any rate, I had their Export on tap and noticed they had their Bock and got that too.
a brief lunch stop yielded no food
