An "Obaladara," please. In Oberleinleiter in the district of Bamberg, people know what that is. And they also know that it simply tastes delicious, because it comes from the Ott family. Since 1822, the Ott family has been running a traditional Franconian brewery and pub on the Oberleinleiter No. 6 estate in Oberleinleiter, a community of just under 200 souls. With a five-figure output per year, the Ott brewery is one of the larger breweries in the district. If you look at the beer assortment, with currently seven types of beer (including seasonal beers), it is rather manageable and classically Franconian. Beer from the Leinleitertal is simply the name on the company logo. Much too modest, in our opinion. Because every bottle from the Ott brewery is a real beer speciality. Which is certainly also due to the mountain spring water used to brew by master craftsmen at the private brewery. Also the "Obaladara", a dark beer with a pronounced malt aroma and a fine caramel note. What's up with the name? Translated into High German, an "Oberladara" is a "beer from Oberleinleiter," nothing more. It's called that because the village of Oberleinleiter is located on the upper reaches of the little river Leinleiter (Franconian "Lada"). You want to know how the original "Oberladara" tastes? Then pack a half to try in your next beer package.
Traditional brewery with taproom
The village of Leinleiter is located in the middle of Franconian Switzerland, in the biking and hiking paradise near Heiligenstadt. If you're out and about there, you should definitely take a break at the foot of the 520-meter-high Kreuzstein rock and treat yourself to a cool blonde beer at the brewery inn - along with fried chicken with homemade potato salad. The specialty of the house. The Ott family's inn serves good home-style cooking in typical Franconian style. This also means that in the afternoon there is fresh, home-baked cake. Super cozy and perfect for unwinding in the midst of Franconian nature.
