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.
Sonnen-Bräu Fastenbier is a rich malty Bock with an herbal hop aroma and lingering dry finish.
Trunk Nothelfer Fastenbock is a dark dangerous brew at 8%, full of rich malt, dried stone fruit and underlying hops.
Schlenkerla's Heinlein Dunkles Bier is a very low alcohol brew with a surprisingly full flavor. It's got a hoppy slightly smoky palate and lingering bitter finish.
Gutmann Dunkler Weizenbock is a seasonal brew from one of Franconia's top Weizen breweries. At 6.9%, it's a dangerously drinkable brew.
Göller Winter Festbier is the rare amber Fest and a good one at that, with some caramel notes in the richly malty palate. The semi-dry lingering finish moreish.
Göller Dunkles Bockbier is a richly malty balanced with a semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.
Zur Sonne Weihnachtsbock is a richly malty balanced Hellerbock with refreshingly fruity palate and moreish semi-dry finish.
Zunft Trunk Dunkel is a gorgeously dry Kellerbier which would be great to session on.
