Founded in 1932, George Brehmer’s renowned Vollbier has been a favorite in this valley and beyond for four generations. His daughter and son-in-law have kept the tradition going with a classic old Franconian pub serving traditional dishes and their wonderful beer. Rooms available.

Schnitzel with Kartoffelnsalat and small Biergarten with Linden Tree

I was lucky to enjoy the very atmospheric (if a bit small) Biergarten the first time I was here. How they manage to have such a nice size Linden tree in such a small area is beyond me. Since I’d split a Schäuferla with my wife just up the street only an hour earlier, we did the same with a formidable Schnitzel here. We were with another couple and had sworn to only drink one beer at each of the five brewpubs but that rule was broken here. It was just too good.

cozy interior of Lindenbräu & their renowned Vollbier

I’ve been back many times now and have been lucky enough to stay there overnight a few times too. It’s a real classic with one of the best pub interiors in Franconia and their Vollbier when served via gravity dispense is a one of those beers you could drink all night. By staying a night or so there, you have time to try their growing line-up of beers. I’ve still not had a chance to try their much heralded Weizen but their Pils and Festbier were both excellent.

Lindenbräu Pils, Festbier & Kellerbier

I finally got around to trying their medal-winning Weizen and it was even better than expected. I also had their Schäuferla for the first time in years and it was one up there with the best of the Fünf Seidal brewpubs. I’d not hesitate to have both again.

Lindenbräu Weizen, a crispy Schäuferla

A friend picked up a bottle of their citrusy session beer called Fritzle. I hope to see it on tap one day. It’s a tasty tipple worth seeking out. I had quite a few Fünf Seidla Steig® tours in 2023 and tried to their new Tennen Hell on one of the warmer visits. It paired with with their Schnitzel using spent grains as breading. It appears to have replaced what I felt was a fairly lackluster Kellerbier which was no longer on the beer list.
