Why Beer Wanderers?

Welcome to Beer Wanderers:  a site for lovers of finding new beers.  In this case, those in Franconia, a northern region in Bavaria, where some 300 breweries are densely dotted across a timeless landscape.

The hope is to make this information more accessible to those interested in finding not only beers they haven’t tried but also to experience a unique part of the world, where brewing traditions haven’t changed for generations and often, the same families own and actually run these enterprises.

This is a chance to step back in time, to walk trails tread on by knights and peasants, past castles and rocky outcroppings, through lush forests and verdant valleys…to become a beer wanderer.
