Check out the Top 5 Beer experiences of 2022 and make plans to enjoy your beer dreams in 2023!
Sonnen-Bräu Imperial Stout is a rich malty high gravity stout with some dried fruit and licorice before the lingering semi-dry finish. It lacks a bit of mouthfeel for the alcohol level and it's not quite as complex as you'd expect but it's quite dangerous for 10%.
Hopfengarten Hopfen Zupfer is a balanced brew with a malty if thin palate and semi-dry finish.
BroBier Keller Pils/Zwickel is a lightly hoppy unfiltered beer with a fair grain element and lingering semi-dry finish.
BroBier Vollbier is a balanced brew with a fresh malty palate and semi-dry finish.
BroBier Helles is quite hoppy and dry for the style but will appeal to Craft Beer enthusiasts seeking out something outside the traditional in Bamberg.
Brauerei Seelmann was closed for some time and their old pub is still only available for events but they do bottle beer and this Helles is a fine one if you can get your hands on a bottle.
Wagner Bräu Bock is a rich malty beer of 7.5%. This bottle had a fair amount of diacetyl but I'll not write the beer off until I try it again one day.
Ulrich Martin is a traditional brewery lovingly restored by the man himself. The Rauch Märzen is a lightly smoky beer tinged with some bacon and a very dry finish, making it moreish.
Brauerei Leicht in Pferdsfeld closed at the end of 2022 due to the owners wanting to retire and having found no one to take it over.
