Founded in 1554, this is still perhaps the town’s most traditional brewpub with one beer still dispensed from gravity tap. It’s possibly the least updated and retains the one-room boozer atmosphere of yore.  I had an amazing Festbier in a bottle from them in 2006 and more recently, at the Annafest, had their lovely Schwarze Anna on tap.

I returned in November 2019 in search of a Bock and was happy to find the Gregor Bockbier, though only in a bottle form. The Export was the only beer being served on tap and it was still happily gravity dispensed.

I specifically returned a month later to have the Export, listed as Fassbier. It was served in a ceramic Krug but I ordered a second one in a glass to see if it was unfiltered and it was a bright golden.

While in Forchheim for a long weekend, I was mostly in the countryside, hiking to Bierkellers but did stop into Neder for a few Exports. I discovered an outside seating area in the rear of the building. I wouldn’t call it cozy, especially compared to Brauerie Eichhorn up the road but it was a nice place to sit on a very sunny day.
