Founded in 1820 and stopped brewing in 2018. It’s hard to believe two such places in one small village had survived all those years. Geisfeld had another classic small brewery in Krug. This one was even housed in a half-timbered house and has a leafy Biergarten. It took me many years to get to enjoy it. It always seemed to be closed when I was in Geisfeld. They were generally open in the afternoons and if slow seemed to close early. They also had vacation periods seemingly only advertised at the brewery. I’d arrived to a simple sign saying “on vacation” a couple times! Anyway, it was well worth the effort.

I got back last year with my wife and some friends from the US visiting. It was a good reason to do the 7-Brauereienweg and glad we did as this fine brewery seems to be closed for good. Hopefully, one day it will be open again.

Beer: Lagerbier
Beer calender:

  • different beers (changing names like Elephant and Black Sheep) in Spring & Fall
  • Kirchweih is the 1st Sunday in September
