Hausbrauerei Altstadthof Das Rote
Haubrauerei Altstadt's Das Rote is reportedly the first Rotbier after many year's of its absence and it credited as being responsible for its current resurgence.
Schanzenbräu Rotbier is perhaps the best of the Nürnberg Rotbiers and this is the town most noted for them. It's by far the cleanest and has the most moreish finish.
