Kreisla 36 is a collaboration beer of Stern-Bräu, Brauerei Kaiser and Brauerei Hermann. It's a smoky Dunkel treat well worth seeking out.
Stern-Bräu Festbier on tap in 2021 was again very dark and not as smoky but remained a sublimely dry session beer supreme.
The Voggendorf Keller is located outside of Uehfeld, an area rich with stork nesting areas. It's featured in Beer Hiking Bavaria along with the two breweries in town.
The Pretzfelder Kirschenweg is a pretty hiking circuit which starts in Pretzfeld, a short train trip from Forchheim. The Pretzfelder Keller is an idyllic place for your beery reward.
Nikl-Bräu Weiße Eule is a very refreshing Weizen with a semi-dry fruity palate and lingering finish. It's dangerously quaffable at 5.5%
Nikl-Bräu Michala is an unfiltered dark Kellerbier with a hint of chocolate in the semi-dry palate. It's deceptive at 5.2%.
Nikl-Bräu Zwickl is a balanced brew with some grain and underlying hops before a slightly bitter finish. It's a perfect beer for the Keller and at 4.7% can be drunk all day.
Hartleb Vollbier is balanced unfiltered amber beer with malty palate with enough underlying hops to make it süffig. The lingering finish is just semi-bitter.
Först Keller-Pils is a dry fruity unfiltered Pils with a semi-bitter clean finish.
Stern-Bräu Festbier in 2021 in a bottle turned out to be quite different, a rich dark smoky treat.
