Founded around 1052 (various dates depending on the source) so only Weihenstephan and Weltenburg are older. This former monastic brewery has been in the hands of the Winkler family since 1827. The pretty Baroque church is worth visiting before or after enjoying the cozy restaurant which features quite a few beers on tap, changing with the season along with both hearty and delicious warm dishes and typical cold plates.

Sülze with Bratkartoffeln & ther Altfränkisch Klosterbier

For me, this is one of the most underrated brewpubs and though many start the Fünf Seidla Steig here, I would rather finish at this great spot. Unfortunately, I have always found myself starting here too. Hence, I’ve not had a full hot meal but can attest to seeing some great looking food. I had a great plate of Sülze mit Bratkartoffeln (jellied meat with fried potatoes) which was excellent and great value. Their beers are equally on the money ranging from traditional to some new craft beer type offerings.

Beers: Altfränkisch Klosterbier, Classic Bioland, Eucharius Pils, Weissenhoher Pils, Kloster-Sud, Bonifatius Dunkel, Eucharius Märzen, Glocken Hell Vollbier, Barrique Klosterbier, Cannabis Club, Bonator Doppelbock, green MONKey.
