Founded in 1784, the Sauer family has been brewing here ever since. The half-timbered house is their scenic home all year with a cozy interior and ample menu. In summer, their scenic Felsenkeller adds to the small village’s allure.

Their warm brewpub offered us refuge on a cold wet day as we hiked from Litzendorf to Strullendorf. We’d stopped at a few breweries along the way but still found room for a very tasty Flammkuchen (think German pizza) and an assortment of their quite dry flavorful beers, including a marvelous Bock.

We got back to the breweries a couple times recently, once for another round of Flammkuchen  with some good friends from the US. We also stopped in on Easter Monday for a proper meal and to try their dry-hopped Frühlings Märzen. I had Lammbraten with a dumpling and string beans and my wife opted for the Zander filet. She started off with a creamy asparagus soup too.

a fine Easter Monday meal

We had started out eating inside but we decided to move outside for our dessert, a very good Apfelküchle.  We also got to see the village’s fountain decorated for Easter.

We’ve decided to make Sauer a more lunch stop more often. It’s not far off the highway and has fantastic food.
