“Enjoy a great meal and beer plus meet a Wolpertinger”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

After a day of trying to figure out the bus system in Zwiesel, including an unexpected hike to the Nachmann Crystal outlet in the boondocks, we returned to town looking for a good meal and a good beer. On the downtown square across from the fountain, we found the Dampfbrau. It is not the brewery which is in another part of town, but it sells its beer on tap. We walked just before they were ready to take their afternoon break before dinner, but our waiter was gracious and friendly, and we were welcomed.

The beer was a wonderful dark concoction (it means steam beer) and our meal selections were amazing. I had a beef roast smothered in a cream mushroom sauce (with the local steinpilz mushrooms). My husband had a brisket in a cream sauce. We were surprised to find the meat was similar to corned beef, and so tender it didn't need a knife. It was covered with a delicious light horseradish cream sauce and a sprinkling of horseradish on top.

As we were waiting for our meal, we met the resident Wolpertinger (the iPod translator actually translated this as Jackalope, I kid you not), apparently the mascot of the local schnapps distillery. We had to put that visit off for another time.
