Willersdorf makes a great base for exploring the many breweries and Bierkellers in the area. The Willersdorf Rittmayer outlet may not be an actual brewery but it serves its own beer, has excellent food and service and perhaps most importantly, has rooms.

I’m unsure if this was part of the Rittmayer in Hallerndorf but it seems a popular name as there is yet another Rittmayer in nearby Aisch. It was its own brewery until 1977. They still have a Kellerbier contract-brewed at Lieberths in Hallerndorf and it is only available at the hotel’s restaurant. It’s a very nice Gasthof/Hotel and since none of the Hallerndorf area brewpub have rooms available, this is about as good as it gets to staying at a brewery in the Kreuzberg area. The room was quite good value and though smallish, quite modern.
We spent a couple of very pleasant nights at the hotel and though we only ate there once, it was great quality, too. Its very popular and the outside seating was always busy. They offer full meals as well as typical Franconia snacks in addition to a selection of Rittmayer beers on tap, as well as their Kellerbier. We enjoyed the tasty Kellerbier and Rauchbier with our mixed meat plate.

While running a tour of the area Bierkellers, I spent three nights at this great place again. The food was top notch, great service and I enjoyed their Kellerbier more than those at all “other” Rittmayer locations. It’s a more hop-forward beer and worth seeking out even if it’s contract-brewed.
