The chronicle of the Reckendorf Castle Brewery in the district of Bamberg dates back to 1597. Even then, the castle property was equipped with a tavern and brewery license. In 1952, Georg Dirauf bought the brewery property. Since then, the traditional brewery has been owned by the family - currently, graduate engineer and master brewer Dominik Eichhorn is at the helm of the company.
Excellent beer quality, produced at the highest technical level
In terms of brewing technology, the Schlossbrauerei presents itself at the top level. With state-of-the-art equipment, eleven Franconian beer specialties, one beer mix, and fourteen non-alcoholic beverages are currently produced. Kellerbier, Pilsner, dark beer, wheat beer or Weizenbock, for example. With the exception of wheat beer and cellar beer, all types of beer are filtered. This gives the beers their unmistakable taste. Brewing at the Schlossbrauerei is, of course, carried out in accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law. With selected, high-quality raw materials: Brewing water from the local well, hops from Spalt and the Hallertau, malt from exclusive malting plants and home-grown brewer's yeast. Quality that also caught the attention of the jurors of the Meininger Craft Beer Award 2016. They awarded the Weizenbock the gold medal.
EßkultPur! The Schloßbräu Reckendorf Inn.
Eating cult pure! The Schloßbräu Reckendorf Inn.
What would a castle brewery be without a brewery inn and beer garden? In Franconia only half as much. And half things - they do not exist in the Reckendorf family business. True to the motto "Eßkult(p)ur", Gasthaus Schlossbräu also combines tradition with modernity. To be more precise: Franconian cult cuisine meets "the way the world cooks". Much remains homemade - regardless of the cooking style. And so, in addition to homemade sausage, ham and smoked specialties (which, by the way, are all homemade and available for purchase at the meat counter), Franconian carp (from the restaurant's own ponds) or a down-to-earth roast dish, you'll also find a selection of creative international dishes on the purist menu.
It's simply wonderful to sit in the castle garden under tall chestnut trees and with a view of the new brewhouse. There are about 150 seats, 60 of which are covered. So it's ideal for an outing - even in mixed weather. Speaking of excursions: Reckendorf is easy to reach by train and bike. So let's get there.
