The city of Weissenburg was an unexpected treasure. I had gone strictly to visit the town's two breweries but was surprised to find a beautiful medievial city, much of it still walled with some picturesque gates to boot. Unfortunately, my camera was not working so I have no photos. The brewery itself was typical Bavarian put with many locals enjoying the local brews and food. It was cosy and the waitress was very helpful and even spoke English. This is very helpful in this part of Bavaria where the Franconian dialect is all but indecipherable.

Favorite Dish: Even though I had eaten at the Sigwart Brewery just up the road, I ordered a cold plate of Franconian specialties as I had a few beers to try and always best to have German beer paired with local foods. It was huge and full of different hams, liverwurst, and local cheeses. I tried their Helles, Pils, Dunkles, and Marzen. All were quite tasty especially the Dunkles and Marzen. Marzens are an increasingly rare style of beer so great to find one on tap. This one was deep amber with a dense creamy head and well balances palate. Rich and malty, it had enough hops to bring about a nice bittersweet finish.

Address: Bachgasse 15 Weißenburg
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Weissenburg is about two hours northwest of Munich and easliy reached by train. The brewery is a bit off the main square and a free map can be picked up at the tourist information center.
