Founded in 1887 and in the same family ever since, it only took the name Spessart Specht in 1975 to better reflect the beautiful nature park surrounding it. The woodpecker appropriately became its colorful symbol. Brewing, however, dates back in formal writing to 1741 when it was called Goldenen Löwen. The Junker family bought it in 1809 and the street still bears this name but the brewery ceased operations in 1830. The Lutz family bought it in 1884 and reopened it three years later.

some of the bottles I brought home

They brew a small but varied line-up of regular traditional style beers and no seasonal brews. Their brewery tap Zum Stern is now closed and on researching a replacement pub, the one I found was across the river in Wertheim. It’s in the Hotel Taube Nette, atmospherically set on the river.

 Beers: Räuberchen Pils, Räuberchen Hell, Räuberchen Dunkel, Spessart Goldspecht, Spessart Hefeweizen, Spessart Radler, Spessart Natur-Radler, Spessart Pils alcohol free, Spessart Hefeweizen alcohol free.
