The Brauereigasthof Rothaus is located at Rothaus 2, on the brewery grounds. It can be reached by taking the train to either Seebrugg or Tiengen, and riding the bus from there. The bus stops directly across the street from the brewery and hotel. During my visit in September 2008, a half-liter cost just 2,60€, a real good deal.
