Founded in 1809 and in the Gehring family since 1848. Interestingly, the first in the Gehring line was initially a brewer working there but the owner, who had no heirs, put him in charge and later sold him the brewery. It has continued to expand ever since and is now a medium sized regional brewery. The actual brewery is south of the old town center. The Gasthof is their brewery tap.

Though I spent the night at Gasthof Kauzen, I had a lot to do in the area so only had time for one quick beer, their Premium Pils. I sat out front but I would have liked to eat in the pub. Luckily, I got to experience it a bit at breakfast the next day before leaving.

Beers: Pils, Kellerbier & Weißbier on tap. Not sure of their bottled beer line-up in the pub but they have a large portfolio according to their website (

Beer calendar:

Hopefully, one day I’ll get back and have a bit more time to explore it. I’d have no reservations to stay there again. The room was reasonably priced and the owner friendly.

Back to Ochsenfurt.
