Founded in 1602, the brewery was sold in 1895 and has been in the same family now for four generations. It was voted the best small brewery in the world by an American magazine quite a few years ago and gained some notoriety from that but it’s always been popular with the locals who come to down their Pils and U in quantities.

The atmosphere at Mahrs is bustling and the low wooden beamed ceiling of the main taproom is picturesque and cozy.  The food is great, too. I’ve had quite a few great meals here including a very tasty Fleischpflanzerl, a spiced meat patty of pork and beef.

Their “U” with Fleischpflanzerl

Mahrs has lots of great beers and are noted for their Pils and a session beer called U. It’s an unfiltered low carbonation quaffer.

Just back from another stop at Mahrs and enjoyed their Bock which was served from the wooden barrel, though it’s now my understanding that they are purely ornamental (and a great job of that!) and have regular tap lines running through them.

I’ve been back many times over the years and the food’s always great from simple snacks to full hot meals like goose breast and Biergulasch.

The Biergarten has been renovated and now features many beers on tap. While this has done away with the gravity dispense barrels, the added variety sure is nice and beers are still served without a ton of gas.  Service is prompt and you can enjoy a full meal and any number of beers to wash it down. I recently enjoyed the Frühlingsbier and Sommer Pils
with a great duck breast and friend loved the Roulade and Pils.
