This is a list of hiking trails in Franconia that take you by not only great scenery but also small breweries, often very hard to reach by public transportation. They are generally put together using non-beery trails that happen to run close to or by neighboring breweries. It’s in alphabetical order so in no way reflects favorites. You can do them as stand alone circuits or piece them together to make longer multi-day trips as I did on my epic 2017 four-day Beer Hiking Extravaganza.
