This was our fifth stop of the day, but we had to pay a visit here to see what the fuss was all about. We needed a meal too, so why not? Once inside, the charm of the place was overwhelming. How can you not give a high rating for this? Not a perfect rating, but a great one.

Being late in the day may have created a problem because the only beer that they had left was, fortunately, the Rauchbier. I have never been a fan of this style, so I ended up feeling neutral about the rating that I gave it.

My goal was to try native dishes too, so this was my opportunity to have the Saxe which came with a potato dumpling and sauerkraut. What an experience!

While looking at the menu I noticed that this place opens early enough for us to come back for breakfast, so we did. They had a rauchweissen on then, so that was my breakfast beverage. It was not quite as smoky as the rauchbier and we liked it better. I would have liked coffee to go with breakfast too but nope, no coffee. The breakfast consisted of sausages, sauerkraut and bread, and that was an experience just as much as the saxe was the previous evening.

Additional notes: As with most of the places that we visited we saw no bar. Credit cards are not accepted.

This was the Holy Grail of any and all beer places I visited in Germany. They serve the mighty Schlenkerla Rauchbier and that is reason enough to love this place.

The building is incredibly old, ornate and beautiful both inside and out. Very quiet on a Monday at 10:30pm (they close at 11pm). The Gothic vaulted arches and the candelabra are a sight to behold.

No menu given, just a waitress coming by and asking: “Smoked beer”? “JA!!”. The wife wanted a weisse and the server said, “smoked wheat”. Sure! They are served on the traditional pump that dispenses them at the perfect temperature and mouthfeel (if slightly oxidated around the edges).

Didn’t try any food. I was there for the RAUCH!

This is one of the oldest brauerei in Bamberg; home of the Franconian biers. Selection is dependent on season however I went here to experience the Rauchbier (smoked beer). My German colleague explained they tap one cask of this bier each day and I watched as the gravity fed pour drained into the stein. Since this was my first experience, the smokey smell of oak wood was evident and the taste resting on my palate was delicious! Food selection was modest and the pork went well with my bier. Aecht Schlenkerla is the real deal! Sadly the Franconian biers are falling to the wayside and I encourage you to do a web-search of these brews. Those who hold on still apply the old ways of doing it right!

Simple to anyone that want to visit a unique place and sample the beer and food, Its a must visit.
Its really depends on your mood and what you expect. Its old and wood every where, every review tell you that.

I go for the company and the history. Not really the beer as smoked beer is not my thing. and lucky you are not forced to drink it if you do no want to. also there lots of better places for the "onion"
