Private brewery’s restaurant (Meissen - Germany)

Private brewery’s restaurant

[ Aug.2015 ] We had our lunch at a restaurant called Schwerter Schankhaus in the Markt, main square in the old town of Meissen in Germany.

We chose here just because it looked nice, but in fact this was a restaurant run by the local beer manufacturer whose history goes back to 1460.

This Schwerter beer (meaning ‘sword’) is the oldest in Saxony.

Currently they produce 25000 hectolitters annually.

The beer was very good.

What I ate here was the Meissen sausage, which was very good.

The garnish was two kinds of sauercraut.

One of them seemed pickled overnight and it was delicious.

My husband chose Schnitzel, which was a flat pork cutlet.

Well, I prefer Japanese pork cutlet.

The Cotoletta alla Milanese looks similar to schnitzel, but it is not pork but veal and tastes better.
