Ebermannstadt is a pleasant little town with good rail connections to Forchheim. It makes a good jumping off point into the countryside with many fine small breweries within walking distance, passing through the beautiful Franconian Switzerland landscape which draws people to the area. The town’s second brewery, Sonnen-Bräu, unfortunately closed in 2013, about a year after my visit to Schwanenbräu across the street. Ah, if I’d only known what would happen, I’d have surely done things differently. I did return in the summer of 2020 to visit the charming little Schwanenbräu Keller.
