Schlossbrauerei Weinberg

Brewery in The Mühlviertel

Perched on a forested hill, Schlossbrauerei Weinberg, 10 minutes’ walk from Kefermarkt overlooking the red turrets of privately owned Schloss Weinberg, has been producing beer since 1387. The affable owners serve their time-honoured brews along with specialities like beer-drenched goulash, schnitzel with beer sauce and fresh-from-the-pond trout in the vaulted restaurant (mains €7 to €13) or chestnut tree-shaded terrace.

After a beer (or three), you’ll sleep like a baby in one of the quiet guest rooms (single/double €34/54) with porthole-like windows that afford snapshot views of the castle.
