Heller Aecht Märzen

Schlenkerla is a world classic pub and the brewery never rests on its laurels. Their flagship Märzen is a smoky delight not to be missed.

Mahrs Bräu U

Mahrs Bräu makes an amazing range of beers and this is their flagship. "U" is a hard beer to describe but not to drink. I've never heard anyone say they didn't like it.

Grasser Weihnachtsfestbier

Grasser in Huppendorf is one of Franconia's greatest. Their Festbier is a fine example, with a rich malty palate and some find hopping to dry it out in the clean bitter finish.

Brauerei Ott Bock

Ott Bock is a fine example of a Hellerbock with a rich malty palate and long dryish bitter finish.

Hartmann Bock Dunkel

Hartmann's Bock Dunkel is a fair example of the style with a rich malty palate and somewhat sticky finish.

Binkert Brauhaus Bock

Binkert's Bock is a fair example of the style with a rich malty palate and slightly bitter finish.

Long Live Lagers

Hand-crafted lagers are nothing new in Franconia but they just may be that on American craft beer market.
