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.
