Founded in 1556 and still in the same family, this very cozy local is bustling for good reason. Great reasonable food and a big portfolio of fine beers. Though they have no rooms on the premises, they have apartments for rent nearby. To be honest, I wasn’t prepared for all the beers they’d have on tap as we did both of the village breweries in the same evening! I’ll allot more time next visit.
I had a few of their beers and would have likely had more if I hadn’t spent a couple hours around the corner at rival Brauerei Wagner. I also had a nice duck breast but the photo didn’t come out very well!
scenes from Brauerei Hummel
I returned late one winter to finally do the entire 13-Braueienweg over two days so only had time for one of their tasty Kellerbiers.

I made a specific trip to Hummel when in Bamberg during Lent in hopes of having their smoky Dopplebock Räucherator on tap. It unfortunately was only in bottle but was excellent nonetheless. I followed up with their regular smoky offering Räucherla, which was an easy drinking Rauchbier.

- Maibock in April and May
- Festbier Hell on Easter, Whit Sunday, Kirchweich and Christmas
