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 Kloster Urstoff

Rother-Bräu Kloster Urstoff is a balanced good example of a Märzen with a richly malty palate and lingering semi-dry finish. Once brewed by the Klosterbrauerei in Münnerstadt, it is now the product of Rother-Bräu who bought it up.
