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.

Trunk Nothelfer Fastenbock on tap

Trunk Nothelfer Fastenbock is a dark dangerous brew at 8%, full of rich malt, dried stone fruit and underlying hops.

Weiherer Hopfenweizen

Weiherer is a great brewery with both traditional and craft beer offerings. Their Hopfenweizen is a great mix of the two, with Citra, Polaris and Cascade hops making this a citrusy treat.

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.

Stern-Bräu/Kaiser/Hermann Kreisla 36

Kreisla 36 is a collaboration beer of Stern-Bräu, Brauerei Kaiser and Brauerei Hermann. It's a smoky Dunkel treat well worth seeking out.

Stern-Bräu Festbier on tap #2

Stern-Bräu Festbier on tap in 2021 was again very dark and not as smoky but remained a sublimely dry session beer supreme.

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.
