Founded in 1556 and still in the same family, this very cozy local is bustling for good reason. Great reasonable food and a big portfolio of fine beers.  Though they have no rooms on the premises, they have apartments for rent nearby. To be honest, I wasn’t prepared for all the beers they’d have on tap as we did both of the village breweries in the same evening!  I’ll allot more time next visit.
I had a few of their beers and would have likely had more if I hadn’t spent a couple hours around the corner at rival Brauerei Wagner. I also had a nice duck breast even if the photos didn’t come out so well.

Duck breast and one of their seven beers on tap that night
