Ebermannstadt

Ebermannstadt is a small pleasant town with good rail connections and makes a good jumping off point into the countryside with many fine small breweries within walking distance, often through beautiful landscapes. The town’s second brewery unfortunately closed in 2013 before I got to stop in. Ah, if we only knew what would happen, how we might act differently.

Founded in 1812, the brewery itself is 500 meters away closer to the Wissent River at Mühlenstraße 1. A little further up the river on the same street is the scenic Schwanenbräu Biergarten, a place I’ve not been lucky enough to experience yet.

The Gasthof Schwanenbräu is right on the main square and is as noted as a restaurant as brewery. I’ve not had the pleasure of eating there as I’d just come from a large meal at Meisterbräu and was only here to try a few beers. I had the Lagerbier Dunkel, Pils and couldn’t resist trying their Bock while there too.  It was a cozy room but must say, I’d like to come back in summer to hit their Biergarten next time.
