I did a double take on this one, as I found it hard to believe that this was your first visit, Juergen (??).  Anyway, yes, I've been there, walked there from Drosendorf one time while we were staying there.  It's always a little awkward because the opening times and bus times don't easily mesh.

I can't remember the year and, for some reason (note to Fred), all my entries on the brewery experience pages seem to have disappeared (I was a really assiduous writer in my early days!) but maybe 2012?  It was memorable, aprt from the beer and lovely atmosphere, by being the first time that we witnessed a female Stamtisch.  We had settled comfortably in place (we were the first people at opening time on a Sunday) and had our first beer, which I thought was a sort of Vollbier, darkish and malty and very delicious.
As we contemplated the world, a succession of ladies of a certain age took their places in the table by the window.  Apart from the fact that most were drinking coffee or soft drinks, with only a few sampling the beer, quelle surprise (I can't remember the German equivalent) it was remarkably like a male Stamtisch - perhaps a little more animated and vocal but otherwise, much the same.  Come to think of it, it may be the only all-female Stamtisch that I have seen!
Sadly, we never managed to get back there, which is a great shame because it's a ;ovely place and very unspoiled - or was, hope that it still is!
