The Walberlafest is perhaps Germany's oldest spring festival. Set high on a hill called the Walberla, it is certainly the most atmospheric. Hike around it before ascending for the most dramatic entrance.

Schlenkerla Rauchweizen on tap
Schlenkerla's Rauchweizen truly combines the smoke of the brewery with classic Weissbier flavors. This on tap version is even drier than the bottled one. Definitely one to try when there!
Nothhaft Antonius Starkbier Hell
Nothhaft Antonius Starkbier Hell is a potent Heller Doppelbock at 7.5% with a richly malty palate and lingering semi-dry bittersweet finish.
Roppelt (Trossenfurt) Festmärzen bottle
Roppelt Festmärzen is dry and fruity for the style and also has a kiss of smoke before the lingering semi-dry finish.
Roppelt (Trossenfurt) Gold Pils
Roppelt Pils is a dry hoppy example of the style with a clean, dry, bitter finish.
Göller Märzen is quite dry and fruity for the style with a lingering semi-dry finish. The Göller beers while not always overly concerned with style restrictions are getting better every time I go out there.
Wagner Richard Wagner Dunkel
Wagner Richard Wagner Dunkel is good example of the style with some chocolate and roast in both the nose and palate and a lingering semi-dry, bittersweet finish.
Wagner Heller Bock
Wagner Heller Bock is a richly strong Bock of 7.5% with floral and citrus hops in both the nose and palate.
Ulrich Martin Josephi Bock on tap
Ulrich Martin is a traditional brewery lovingly restored by the man himself. The Josephi Bock is fantastic bock full of rich malt and fine hops. The lingering finish is moreishly semi-dry, making for a dangerous 7% brew.
Greifenklau Roter Bock
Greifenklau Roter Bock is a richly malty brew with a nice spicy element to both the nose and palate. The lingering finish just dry enough to invite another.
