Coburg Station 15 km/bus service from Coburg

The charming half-timbered building on the town’s main square has been in possession of a Reinwand descendant since the mid-1800s and brewing rights at the communal brewery is extended through that ownership. The restaurant is justifiably busy even on my visit during COVID-19 restrictions. The interior was closed off for this reason but the weather was gorgeous so it’s unlikely anyone would sit inside unless the couldn’t secure a seat out front.

a great Schnitzel & Hausbier were a perfect end to my return to Sesslach

I would have liked to get a better look at the interior but everything was closed off. I hadn’t been there in 17 years but I guess that part of my memory lane visit will have to wait. That said, sitting outside was the thing to do on a day like that anyway.  Again, due to COVID-19, there was a different protocol. You went up and ordered your food and beer. The food was brought to you but you had to bring your beers back to the table yourself. Easy enough but many were put off by it.

The Schäuferla looked incredible but like too much work on a warm day. I opted for the Schnitzel and it was not only huge but great too. You could hear them pounding them constantly so you know they’re fresh. The potato salad was obviously home made as well. Their Hausbier was a few notches above the one from the Roter Ochse.  It would have been easy to sit out there and drink one after another but I had a bus to catch.

Beers: Sesslacher Hausbier on tap. Weismann Hefeweizen is also on tap but the ugly umbrellas with their logo would keep me from ever ordering one. If you are in a town with a communal brewery, by all means have that beer anyway.

Back to Sesslach.
