 Unique, as this is one of the very few still existing Kommunbrauereien (communal breweries). The wort is produced in the brewery, then transported to one of the two Gaststätten that sell it. The beer is fermented and lagered in each of the Gaststätten, and the taste of the beer is definitely different in both places. When I visited the brewery (must have been in the early 90's), the brewery was still using a Kühlschiff (cooling vessel).

 Three years ago, the brewing equipment was still very traditional. The beer is more robust, with sharper corners, at Reinwand, and much more rounded at "the Red Ox". A matter of taste what you prefer. Sesslach is one of the most old-fashioned spots you can find in Franconia.

 Forgot to add that this beer is brewed from 100 percent pilsner (i e pale) malt. The colour derives from adding Farbebier at the pubs.

 Visited Sesslach and the beautiful brewery building yesterday. The beer is unfiltrated, hoppy and full of lively flavours. Absolutely recommended!
