Beim Stehern Zoigl is the real deal, made by one of a very limited number of producers in one of only five towns still following all the protocols of Zoigl brewing.
Adler-Bräu Stettfelder Pils is a thirsty quenching straw-colored brew, perfect for after beer hiking in the Franconian countryside.
Adler-Bräu Lagerbier is a true classic Franconian session brew, with a dry fruity palate and a very long dry bitter finish. Well worth seeking out.
Ammergauer Maxbräu Kellerbier is a fine kellerbier made with a mix of Vienna, Pilsner and Dinkel malt with citrusy hops for great balance.
Irseer Kloster-Urtrunk is a marvelous mix of hops and malt with some fine fruitiness thrown in. It's a beer worth the Pilgrim's walk.
Mahrs Bräu makes an amazing range of beers and this is their flagship. "U" is a hard beer to describe but not to drink. I've never heard anyone say they didn't like it.
Weiher is a great brewery with both traditional and craft beer offerings. Their Weizenbock may not be a traditional one but the addition of hops is much welcomed and makes for a tasty but easy drinking brew.
Weiher is a great brewery with both traditional and craft beer offerings. Their Bock is a classic Hellerbock with a malty palate and dryish, bittersweet finish.
Elch-Bräu Dunkle is a very clean beer with a nice chocolatey palate which goes well with the pork dishes the area is noted for.
Hofmann Festbier is all you could ever want in a beer, rich and malty with ample hopping that make for a long dry finish and extremely quaffable palate.
