Founded in 1701, it has been in the Roppelt family since 1889 and they take great pride in producing their beer in small quantities to ensure quality. The pub was closed when I walked by to reach their Bierkeller just up the road but looked to be in great condition. When the weather is good between May and September, the pub does not open. Once you see the Keller, you’ll understand why. I hope to return in the cooler months to enjoy it and what sounds like a fuller range of beers.

sign saying Keller is open & Dunkel in bottle

I was unable to get back and visit the pub due to COVID restrictions but I did get their bottled Dunkel and it’s quite good. I look forward to getting to the pub when it opens!

finally inside the pub

I finally got inside the pub in March 2023. A friend had taken me to Bayer in nearby Theinheim for their Fastenbock. On the way back to the station, he said Roppelt was right on the way so we made a stop for a quick beer. We’d already eaten and it was a quiet night at Roppelt with just one table of locals. They only have food on the weekends. The Lagerbier was in great form and I found out it was the only beer on tap that night. My friend said it’s generally the case so perhaps you can only get there beers in bottles now. So, I picked up a bottle of their Gold Pils as well as the lightly smoky Festmärzen to bring home. A few months later he got me their Bockbier, which they hadn’t brewed in a few years.

the bottles I picked up

I hope to return for a meal sometime but with summer coming up, I’m more likely to return to the Keller before that!

Beers: Lagerbier, Goldpils, Dunkel, Weizen.
