A relative just came back from Germany and one of the stops was what I assume is called the Muhlenbrau brewey?

They brought me back a very nice 1 litter flip top bottle (looks like an oversized maple syrup bottle) of a Dunkel Bock that says Schellenbier on the label and Muhlenbrau on the flip top (which is HUGE btw, like 4 times the regular size), but they didn't remember anything about the beer, brewery etc.

Googling it is very little help, can turn up a few reviews in German, but not much else. Has anyone had any contact with it?

I know its in Bamberg, near Nuremburg.

Try googling it with the umlauts in place like this, Mühlenbräu.

I have tried googling like that and only found a few reviews, in German. I was looking for more of a history of the brewery i guess? I am stumped.

According to their website, they're homebrewers.
Do any of these labels look like it?
Or this?

After further research, it looks like they're a guesthouse and brewery. In Jena. Braugasthof Papiermühle in Jena
Braugasthof Papiermühle means the Papermill Brewery Guesthouse.
Kinda like a B&B with fermenters. Lots of fermenters.

Seems like Jena is the place, but this one is actually in Stegaurach, outside of Bamberg.

I almost moved there, but ended up in Altendorf about 10 miles south of Bamberg. We lived there for 5 years while I worked in Bamberg.

My wife and I went to that gasthaus once, but walked out since it's a seafood restaurant (we don't eat fish...can't even stand the smell of it).

I was in Saarbrücken. About 380km away. For a month. As a teenager.
I'd love to go back. Prolly to München or Köln.
