A rural brewery which enjoys the best in Franconian beer tradition

The "Zum Löwenbräu" rural brewery has been owned by the Wirth family for more than 260 years.

The Wirth family brews beers using selected ingredients – the water used for brewing is drawn from their own well. Thanks to their many years of experience and knowledge generations of Wirth's have been in a position to brew unique beers which have a "very special" taste experience.

Their "Hefeweizen", yeast wheat beer, has taken top place in the "Amber-coloured yeast wheat beer" category at the European Beer Star Award, with three gold medals in 2007, 2008 und 2009.

Connoisseurs are very well catered for in the Löwenbräu

The finest beers, brewed in accordance with Franconian traditions and the Bavarian beer purity law of 1516, like the naturally cloudy "Zwickel-Pilsener" and the yeast-clouded "Hausbräu".

In the "Zum Löwenbräu" restaurant, speciality Franconian meals made using regional and seasonal ingredients are served, with the "Aischgründer mirror carp" well known beyond the borders of Franconia. What about a fruit brandy from a "Gold" awarded "beer brandy" range from our own distillery? Home-made specialities such as malt bread, beer jelly, chocolates and much more are available to purchase in our brewery shop.

The lovely region between Würzburg and Franconian Switzerland tempts you to stay and relax for a while. Enjoy a holiday with the family, a trip to the trade fair in Nuremberg or conferences and seminars in lovely surroundings – in the Hotel "Zum Löwenbräu" you are in god hands.

The "Löwenbräu Beer Garden" above our Felsenkeller is set in an idyllic deciduous forest close to the "Zum Löwenbräu" restaurant and is well worth a visit in the summer months. With a freshly tapped Kellerbier and a hearty snack you really can enjoy real Franconian lifestyle.
