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 close to 300 breweries are densely dotted across a timeless landscape. Bavaria_map_beer_hiking

Beer Wanderers is a resource of information primarily on walking trails that pass through a high concentration of breweries in this region, but also shares some insights on the beer and food it’s renowned for. 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.
