Mark was being funny I think Juergen (and I laughed)... 

Again, the Stub'n (High German and bastardised) or Stube, is a room (normally a 'cosy' room, unless you're in Brauerei Faessla, sorry Barry). So Wirststube is the Landlord's room - the best room in the house and where the locals go (usually). The front tap room in Schlenkerla is the perfect example.

Landlord and Wirt are not quite the same though. In Bavaria the general staff serve the beer and food and the Wirt is usually the man who overseas behind the scenes and is in the front of house greeting people and being generally sociable. The guy in Schlenkerla whose name escapes me (looks like Billy Connelly) is a Wirt. Mahr's have a Wirt (but as a smaller concern he also chips in as waiter as well). Heine at Hoelzlein is the perfect Wirt - he welcomes people and makes sure alles in Ordnung ist. Spezi doens't have a Wirt. A lot of the smaller brewweries don't either of course. 

I'm sure Juergen will correct if I'm wrong.
