A Salty Patch on the Unterfranken Express

Lower Franconia is a lovely bucolic area dotted with small hamlets and a surprising number of regional breweries not to be missed by the intrepid beerwanderer. This details a road trip to Strecks Brauhaus in Ostheim, Rother-Bräu in Roth, Pax-Bräu in Oberelsbach and the Wittelsbacker Turm Bräu at its namesake tower.

Rother-Bräu Öko Urtrunk

Rother-Bräu Öko Urtrunk is an excellent Kellerbier which manages a sublime dryness and low bitterness. It's another winning organic beer from the Lower Franconian brewing legend.
