Erlangen is a university town on the rail line between Nürnberg and Bamberg. It’s a place I’d passed by numerous times and said, we should go there but due to what sounded like lackluster breweries, it never seemed to happen.  Finally, we made a plan and it was not only a surprisingly charming town, but also one of the breweries turned out to be quite good.  It’s certainly worth a stop and could be done in a few hours while traveling between the two big Franconian towns.
