Founded in 1919, this is one of Bamberg’s smaller breweries and one unfortunately often overlooked. Set up on one of Bamberg’s many hills, unless you are going up to visit the Bierkellers, it is a little out of the way. For those who do make the journey, you will find a traditional inn full of locals serving up great food and tasty beer. Their Biergarten is one of the great secrets of Bamberg. If you are in town in the warmer months and the weather is good, by all means head up that hill. You won’t regret it.
I’ve been here in both winter and summer and they both have their charms. I even question myself for not going more often.  I had a great Schweinebraten (roast pork) in winter washed down with lovely Bockbier and both were top notch.

I recently took some English friends up there in summer and it was their favorite spot. I hate to admit, it was my first time in the Biergarten and it won’t be the last. The beer was fantastic, including a seasonal lightly smoked lager and the Schäuferla a hit with the lads.
