 Drei Kronen in Schesslitz is absolutely one of my favourites. Good beer in a small, family run brewery. Basic brewery tap, good beer, good food. The history of a whole range of Drei Kronen breweries starts here, a photocopy of an old licence to brew beer is displayed in the tap room. Don't miss the Weizenbock!

 There are only few beer drinking spots in the world with such an old-world atmosphere as Drei Kronen. And the beer used to be among the softest and most elegant in Franconia. But I have the feeling that the hop character has decreased. If it's true, it's a pity.

 A friendly place with very fine beer. If you're in the area and you don't stop's just unthinkable.

 Is this the 1308 Bier in Strassgiech? Owned by Hans Gerner? Bought by a South African Brewery and then reaquired by the Gerner Family. Excellent beer.

 Amber coloured pale Lager, complex, full bodied brew. The Brauereigaststätte makes You feel living in the 19th century.......

 Well worth the bus journey from Bamberg. I was going to try all the beers but the lager was so good I just couldn't bring myself to change.

 We waited for the place to open up for dinner after their midday break (from 2 to 5), but at 5:15 there was still no sign of anyone inside. The door was open though, so we walked about in the schwemm until the matron showed up. She looked obviously worried that we wanted to eat something (the lights had remained closed in the Gaststätte), but luckily I was only there for a taste of their ungespundetes Lagerbier, otherwise known as Schäazer Lagerbier. So the grandmotherly matron set me up in the yard at the back of the schwemm, between the pub/restaurant and the actual brewery. The Lagerbier was rich and very drinkable, a very good example of Franconian brewing knowledge. I wouldn’t mind coming back here to get a bottle of their Weizenbock, or just to sit in the small Gaststätte and actually get a better feel for the place.

Lagerbier (tap review):
-A huge head sits atop the golden transparence, receding to a veil.
-Creamy cereal delicately attract and deliver what they had promised.
-Straw and toasted malts are carefully carved.
-Moist passages encourage drinkability, but this one goes a little too far I think.
-Again, the soft carbonation helps the mouthfeel.
-Aftertaste is shy, with some supporting, wooden hops.
-Maltiness evolves into delicate honey sweetness with time.
-Another Franconian lager which grows on you the deeper you get into your pint.

 Had dinner and a couple of beers at this nice, simple, old style pub. The food was very inexpensive, filling, and quite delicious. Just like homecooking. The beer was also very good. Friendly service too.
