Breweries you have yet to had a good beer from

|These 'which are the best/worst breweries in Franken' questions appear fairly regularly on the Forum. I suppose that they are mainly from new members or those who haven't had too much opportunity to explore the delights of Frankische bier.|
I concur with my learned friends comments: Hummel and Wagner (both) are standout breweries and all Jason's other favoirites the same. I assume Krug is Krug of Geisfeld, which I presume is still closed - permanently? Rittmayer is ordinary, St Georgen, see previous comments about the Keller, though the beer in the Stub'n wasn't all that bad and I quite liked Loewenbrau both in Stub'n and Keller. All the Sonne (Sonnen?) are excellent - the one is Bischberg is the nearest thing to a rural brewery in Bamberg (though just outside - and the Keller is really nice). Elch was good on the 5-Steig thing, lovely garden & the beers good, if not standout.
I must have a touch of the Scandinavian or Italian because I like Knoblach - again, a nice place to visit in the summer and an interesting range of beer. Goeller is a big disappointment - it should be good but is too often not - and I've been in there loads of times. Drei Kronen don't merit my esteemed patronage but I quite like Hoehn, though the Keller is also really unpredictable in quality.
I could go on forever, makes me feel like booking a flight now!
