Much like Lieberth’s just a few steps away, Rittmayer has their brewery and a nice restaurant in the actual village of Hallerndorf but most head out to the Keller when the weather is fine and for good reason: great food and beer in an idyllic setting. With a bigger variety of dishes and beers, Rittmayer draws more people then their little neighbor but it never seems hectic.
I had a great Schäuferla here and that’s saying a lot as perhaps the best one I’ve ever had was just a 15 minute walk away at Roppelt’s Keller. From memory and the looks of the photos, I had the Kellerbier and Rauchbier. Both were quite enjoyable.

I finally got to return right after the reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic. It wasn’t very busy despite it being a holiday weekend but it was still lively enough. We opted to split a Schäuferla and it was again a fantastic one. We sometimes get an extra dumpling with sauce but my wife noticed fried dumplings, which she promptly chose. They were excellent with a side salad and surely popular. They didn’t have their Rauchbier on tap this time around so went for a Kellerbier and Hausbier. We definitely liked the Kellerbier more.

While running a tour of the Hallerndorf area Bierkellers, we naturally stopped in at the Rittmayer Keller for a snack. I also took the opportunity to resample their Landbier hell. I also introduced the group to Zwetchgenbames and we split a lovely Flammkuchen too.

The first tour of the 2022 season found us back at the Rittmayer Keller on a very crowded Mother’s Dad. The lines were too long to get food but was thankful for the separate beer counter. I was also happy to see a Maibock on tap and it was my favorite Rittmayer beer so far.
