How to hike five miles and visit five breweries in one day outside Bamberg

The Dorf Breweries Express is an easy 9km hike in Franconia Switzerland which takes in five small regional breweries. Join Beer Hiking Bavaria author Rich Carbonara to find the best beers and foods along the way.

Schrüfer Fastenbock

Schrüfer Fastenbock is a richly malty brew for Lent with some roast and dried fruit in the palate and a lingering, semi-dry, semi-bitter finish. Dangerous at 6.7%.

Zur Sonne Weihnachtsbock

Zur Sonne Weihnachtsbock is a richly malty balanced Hellerbock with refreshingly fruity palate and moreish semi-dry finish.

Zunft Trunk Dunkel on tap

Zunft Trunk Dunkel is a gorgeously dry Kellerbier which would be great to session on.

Sonnen Pils on tap

Sonnen Pils is balanced and fuller-bodied than is typical of a German Pils but it's nicely dry without being over bitter.

Kaiser Bockbier

Kaiser Bockbier is an amber brew with an enticing fruity nose and fair hopping offset well by ample malt. This dangerously drinkable 7.5% Bock has a semi-dry moreish finish.
