Sample traditional Allgäuer fare in the Schäfflerbräu’s gemütlich setting. The award-winning kitchen turns out fine examples of such dishes as crusty pork roast in caraway-seasoned dark beer sauce, with housemade dumplings (€8.90); Allgäuer Kässchnitzel, pork cutlets stuffed with ham and cheese (€9.80); venison ragout with dumplings and cranberry sauce (€12.90); and other wild game dishes with noodles (most are about €16). Several items on the extensive menu are listed with a “Land Zunge” logo, indicating that they’re made with the best local Allgäu ingredients.

All the beer is fresh from the family’s brewery next door. Once a month the restaurant hosts a “Sudabend” where customers can watch beer being made in the Guinness-record-setting “smallest portable brewery in the world,” a shiny copper contraption next to the bar. Afterward, guests can drink the previous month’s brew, and on some evenings live music is provided.
