Gnodstadt (Marktbreit)

Gnodstadt is in the same postal code as Marktbreit and is now referred to as a suburb. That said, it was first mentioned by name in 1130, before Marktbreit’s formal recognition in 1266. The surrounding region is more renowned for wine cultivation but Gnodstadt is also home to a fine brewpub. I had come all the way to this region to drink their Pils and do a countryside hike.

The Schwarzer Adler has been in the Düll family since the 18th century and the brewery was founded in 1840. Sixth generations of brewing the same beer makes for a pretty good one. Aside from a seasonal Bock, they only make a Pils but a great one it is.

the great Düll Pils & a pretty great Schnitzel too

I didn’t get to see the interior but from photos it looks cozy. With COVID-19 restrictions in place, I’m not sure if it was open. It was a nice evening and the outside seating area was really nice and it made sense to enjoy it. Who knows what it will be like next time I’m there. One good thing about having only one beer is you can settle into it and their Pils is a fine one to do that with.  I’d had a roast meal for lunch so went for a Schnitzel, a somewhat lighter and easier to eat meal.

finally inside for the Bock!

I finally got back for their marvelous Bock in December 2023, three years after my initial visit. The Bock is even better than the Pils, one of the very best I’ve had. I also had what seemed pricey (at 25€) quarter roast duck but it was massive, more like a quarter goose or half duck! The place was packed so if going on a Sunday, be sure to reserve in advance. I’ll not wait three years until the next meal here.

an incredible Bock & amazing roast duck

The brewery and his wife were very friendly and he explained that the Bock was 7.7%, which we’d have never guess due to its generous hopping. Though not super easy to get to, it’s worth the effort and there is some pretty walking in the area as well.

Beer: Düll Pils on tap.
