The Jura-Bräu brewery in Pegnitz is a family-run business, which has been brewing delectable beers since 1900. And just next door is the newer Brauerei-Vereinigung Pegnitz brewery, established through a collaboration of several local brewers in 1923. Not only can you sample Böheim beer, if you book in advance you can also take part in the guided tour.

After just a two-and-a-half-hour walk from Pegnitz, you'll come to another stronghold of Franconian brewing art: Pottenstein. The town merits a visit for three reasons: You can go on a guided tour at the Hufeisen Brewery and take a peek behind the scenes, and then swig a heavenly half litre in the idyllic beer garden. You can also go on a guided tour or a talk at the "Bruckmayers Urbräu" brewery, and then relax with a beer and enjoy the view of the Adventure Baths next door. And finally, drop by Brewery and Guest House Mager to enjoy the last beer of your tour.
