Zum Posterer Zoigl is a sourish semi-dry example of the style with a lingering finish.
Zum Posterer was the post office up until 1890 and with its location next to The Hotel Schwan and church, the very center of life in town. They have brewing rights bestowed and brew in the communal brewery. They also are only open one weekend per month so aside from not being a member of the Echte Zoigl group, they are very much an authentic Zoiglstube.
Wolframstubn Zoigl is a lovely dry example with a nice biscuit/nutty element before the lingering finish.
Wolframstuben was bestowed brewing rights when Windischeschenbach was a center of home-brewing. The communal brewery was built later to handle the load of the breweries in town having burned down. The current family inherited these rights when they inherited the property. The Stube is very lively and the Zoigl quite tasty.
Kaufbeuren Zoigl may not be an Echte Zoigl but it's sure a tasty one nonetheless and is the closest example to Munich.
Zoigl is more of a beer culture than a style. While largely confined to a few select areas in northern Bavaria, there is one very interesting example in the Allgäu region. Kaubeuren Zoigl Ludwigstrasse 47 has all the right ingredients and is well worth exploring if in the area.
