Aka: "Schlenkerla Historical Brewery Tavern"
A world-classic place to imbibe!
With its atmosphere of dark wood, shadowy interior and ecclesiastical feel, one can take in the age-old surroundings among the various clientele in any of the several adjoining rooms. I especially like to sit in the open "Schwemm" area -- at a table just across from the service window (a peculiar and, I understand, traditional interior-design facet of the regional outlets). Here, one can watch the beautiful liquids being dispensed from wooden kegs and be entertained as empties are relieved and fulls are carted up to await their destiny with the unbunging tap-hammer. And, all importantly, the deep amber smoked beer served here represents the epitome stylistically for "rauchbier" and is well-deserving of its worldwide noteriety.
Yes, it's a popular tourist spot (for those in the know) but certainly nonetheless retains its "aecht" Franconian feel. A must.

Love the beer... Honestly, I love the hallway here, but it is quite cramped. I have spent many an hour enjoying my beer and watching tourists come zooming in and then running out - totally different atmosphere here than the Faessla (which gets fewer tourists). The beer garden is pleasant when it is open. Enjoyed the restaurant, generally good service, but once we came on a shift change and waited a long time for service (almost left). I ordered the (famous) Bamberger Zwiebel (onion) as I had never had one before, while my wife ordered something meaty encased in a dough wrapping (with gravy)(the name of which escapes me). The onion was good, but hers was great (just about the best meal of our trip)! Great bathrooms, as well, freshly refurbished and well kept. Highly recommended! If you visit, come in a small group or alone, order in German, keep quiet and watch the tourists.
