Held Bräu - in the private brewery in the small village of Oberailsfeld in the district of Bayreuth, the name says it all. Beer has been brewed here for over 300 years. Not just any beer, but a beer for "heroes like you and me!". At least that's what it says on the beer label, the menu and the beer trucks. These deliver a classic Franconian beer assortment: A pilsner, a wheat beer, a light beer and a dark farmer's beer. If it's Lent, there's still a Bock beer on the truck bed. If the year is drawing to a close, the driver also has a Weizenbock beer and a Festbier on board.
Special hero in the range? The Altfränkisches Bauernbier. With its inimitable caramel and malt flavor, the drinkable dark beer made it into the one hundred best beers in the world in 2009 in the Süddeutsche Zeitung ranking. An amazing success that only a handful of beers from Franconia achieved at the time. Of course, the farmer's beer with cult character is also in our beer range. Held Bräu's logo also has cult character. It shows a raven-black knight with raised sword and a black raven. The heraldic bird of nearby Rabenstein Castle.
Brewery with brew pub
As leisurely as the Ailsbach flows in Oberailsfeld, so cozy is the brewery's inn. Sauerbraten with dumpling and salad, roulade with dumpling and salad, dumpling with gravy, a pair of fried sausages with cabbage and fried potatoes, fried dumplings with eggs, sausage salad with music - classic Franconian dishes and hearty snacks are on the menu here. Perfectly matched with the in-house beer. Secret hero of the kitchen? The Schäuferle. You have to try it - at the latest after a visit to Rabenstein Castle. And it's really worth it. The castle has a wonderful historical ambience and is one of the most popular destinations in the region.
