Though founded in 1894 and in the same family since its inception, the half-timbered building its housed in dates back to 1519. It features a cozy interior complete with a tile oven and hops strewn across the front of the bar area. With hot meals offered every day during kitchen hours (not between 14:00 & 17:00) and rooms available, it makes a good overnight stop.

We spent the night so I got to try all the beers on tap as well as enjoy a meal at their obviously popular restaurant. After checking in, I started off with their Helles Landbier and headed out for a hike to the nearby pond area and returned to quench my thirst with a half taster of their Weizen.

I started off dinner with their signature Hausbier, a Kellerbier. According to the brewer, it is the unfiltered version of the Landbier but I found it not only much superior but very little like it. I asked for it in a clear glass but it typically comes in a Krug. It went well with their pumpkin soup.

a nice start to dinner

My wife arrived later and after enjoying the soup, had their Kalbsbraten and we both enjoyed their Rotbier.

a great combination on a cold night

Since it’s a noted area for carp, I got the Karpfenfilet with a lovely simple Kartofelsalat, probably the hit of the whole meal in its simple melding of flavors. I got their Pils to round off the beers. Of course, I finished up with their Hausbier and if pressed for time, this is the one to get.

Geyer is also a Brennerei and we had a very fiery and tasty Hollunderbeeren Geist. We were sure glad we had a room. Though we really enjoyed our stay, I finally got back in the summer of 2022 and liked their Felsenkeller even more. Please note, only their Kellerbier is available there but the atmosphere and setting are fantastic.

Beers: Hausbier (Kellerbier), Rotbier, Helles Landbier, Pils & Weizen, all on tap.
