Opening hours: (Closed since September 1, 2023. The former tenants have retired after 22 year of running the Keller. It is being extensively renovated and is expected to reopen in late spring 2024. The brewing facility has taken the Keiler Bier name so I would expect the Keller will follow suite)
Daily 10:00 to 11:00

Output: 350000 HL

Founded in 1643, this large brewery was bought up by Kulmbacher in 2005 which itself is part of the Brau Holding conglomeration which owns a wide range of breweries including Munich’s Paulaner. Don’t let all that put you off as the Bierkeller is quite pretty and even the inside of the brewpub is very attractive.  The food is good and their Pils goes down well in this charming setting.

We went here on a very quick Würzburg stop on our way to Miltenberg and after an all too brief tour of the old town center, we drove out to the Hofbräukeller, which was luckily in the same direction as Miltenberg.  It made for a nice lunch stop and though I wouldn’t go out of my way to go again, I’d certainly go if I was in town for a couple nights.

Würzburger Hofbräu Pils, a beer even my visiting Dad could enjoy

My wife and visiting father both had a very tasty pair of Fleischpfanzerl (ground veal patties) with potatoes. It was a special that day and I wish I’d joined them but opted for smoked Bratwürst, which I found a bit salty. I generally love smoked things but it sure gave me a good excuse to have another beer.  The Pils may not be a great Pils, but it’s a fine Helles and a nice Biergarten beer. I also had the seasonal Kiliani Festbier, an amber Märzen style beer.
