Zentbechhofen is a small village located in the Aisch area but also not far from the Hallerndorf Bierkellers. It’s remote transit-wise and the opening hours of its brewpub make a quick visit difficult unless traveling by your own transport. There is some pretty walking in the area with plenty of ponds, making it a carp-rich area too.

Founded in 1447 and in the same family, this small brewpub isn’t the easiest place to visit. I planned a hike to include it and arrived on a Sunday early in the afternoon so it should have been open. There were people inside from the sounds of it. I was told on trying to enter the front door that it was closed. 🙁  I hope to return another time despite a less then warm welcome.

some scenes from my non-visit

I’ve found a good supply of the Friedel beers online so am working my way through their line-up until I can get back to and inside this elusive brewery. I liked the Friedelsator the best but the Kellerbier would be my choice for a session. Click on links for individual remarks and hope to get them on tap in the summer of 2021.
