Founded in 1754, the Hermann family still runs a very traditional village pub in town as well as a Bierkeller just on the edge of town.  With a simple cozy interior and friendly owners, it’s easy to see why they’ve managed to survive. There is a simple menu but for special events, a more elaborate one.  Their fantastic beer is reason enough to make your way out to Ampferbach.

We stopped here in the middle of a nice walk that takes in both it and Grasmannsdorf before returning to Burgebrach. We’d had a big breakfast and had to catch a midday bus so there wasn’t any time to sample the food. In fact, there was only time for a fairly quick beer. Though their Kellerbier is the most noted from the brewery, I opted for the Weihnachtsbock since it was on tap on our winter visit.  At the time, I’d hoped to return in summer to not only have their lower octane session beer but also to check out their fine looking Bierkeller, which we spotted from the trail on the way into town. It took me two years but I finally made it to Hermann’s Keller and it was worth the wait!
