Well it’s that time of year again, and I’m off to give it a try at the source in a little while. Probably start with a normal Märzen first though.

I suppose dozens of people here have already had this year’s version at various pubs in the US for $15 a glass or something though.

Better this year than last year. AFAICR, anyway, having drunk too much on Wednesday, so things are a bit clouldy. More balanced, dry, and actually quite good.

Does Fastenbier usually stick around all during Lent? I’ll be in Bamberg for Fastenbier next year. Hopefully it doesn’t run out until I get there.

So, how much is a liter at Schlenkerla?

You’d have to bring your own Masskrug, buy two glasses and pour them in your Krug yourself. IIRC a regular Märzen is 2,50€ and the Fastenbier somewhat more. Bamberg’s getting bloody expensive.

I think they brew enough to keep it in stock for all of Fastenzeit. I had it on Easter Saturday one year. I wouldn’t worry about it, especially if you’re coming at least a week before Easter.

It’s also a new tradition; they’ve only been brewing it for a few years now. Maybe 5 or 6.
