I feel fine on the Kösseine

The Kösseinhaus is a great rustic hut located on the Kösseine peak in the Fichtelbebirge Nature Park. It can only be reached on foot from numerous parking lots within the park or further afield on long distance hiking routes. The closest lots involve hiking 2-3 kilometers on fair but uphill paths. There has been a weatherproof hut in this place since 1805 but the current structure was built in 1898 and totally renovated for its 100th anniversary. The hut is surprisingly large and while rustic, quite cozy. Full warm meals are served every day, year round. Since the closure of the Ratsstuben in Wunsiedel, this is probably the best place to sample the local Hönicka Bräu beers on tap. It’s certainly the most scenic!

Kaiserhöfer Kellerbier

Kaiserhöfer Kellerbier is an unfiltered amber balanced brew with a nice grainy malty element to compliment the light hopping.

O-Bräu Export (Kaiserhof)

O-Bräu Export is brewed by Thomas Kaiser at the mother Kaiserhof brewery. It's a textbook example of the malt forward style with a lingering semi-bitter finish. The O refers to the brewer's cat, Oskar.
