Founded in 1867, Keesmann has managed to maintain a nice traditional pub while becoming THE Pils of Franconia. If you’re in Bamberg and want to drink a non-smokey brew, had out to the Wunderburg, where both Keesmann and Mahrs reside.

Its interior is traditional wood with locals filling most of the seats. The only tourists that make it here are beer tourists and they are rewarded with not only the finest Pils but also great food, as well.  I had a great duck breast here and enjoyed a few of their regular beers, as well a fantastic Festbier that had been brewed in commemoration of the 500th year anniversary of the Bavaria Beer Purity Law.

Just back from another visit and their delicious Bock was on tap. My wife had deep-fried liver and I had what it seemed everyone was having, Bratwurst.
