Catching up with old friends & new Bocks on the 13-Brewery Trail

The Bamberg Countryside Breweries Experience and Brewing Heartland Experience are two great walking tours which take you off the beaten path and out into the beautiful Franconian countryside. You can be sure to drink beers you will never find back home and eat the local delicacies.

Griess Bockbier

Griess Bockbier is one of Franconia's best with a balanced palate featuring floral hops and fruity malt. The lingering semi-dry, semi-bitter finish is moreish.

Hönig Postillon Weiße

Hönig's Postillon Weiße is a refreshing classic Wießbier, perfect for a post-hike Bierkeller visit.

Hönig Posthörnla

Hönig's Posthörnla is a great introduction to Rauchbier, with a hoppier palate than is typical.

How to win friends & influence Charlie on the 7-Brewery Trail

The 7 Brewery Trail or 7 Brauereienweg is one of the top beer hiking trails in not only Franconia, but likely the world. With six breweries and two top Bierkellers en route and some lovely rural scenery, you can't go wrong walking this great trail.

Griess Kellerbier

Griess Kellerbier is about as perfect a session drinking beer as you'll find, with a dry fruity palate and long slightly bitter finish.
