Seems like a very local place - the first thing, that hits you is a lot of cigarette smoke in the hallway coming into the place - there is drinking and smoking going on here since quite early morning. The bierstube is wooden old and very cozy, but tending to be a bit smoky as well. We stayed at the place - good prices, but you need to speak a bit of German to make the reservations, but then the service was friendly and good. 4 new beers for me - but 6 in all available. We only had breakfast, which was OK, but not spectacular in any way. Nice place.

Cosy old Bamberger brewpub with a nice beergarden. Smells like horseblanket and barnyard, but that’s fun when you visit such a brewery. The beers are not really good though, and they only had 2 beers available from tap.

Smelly, smokey old brewery, quite busy and authentic I guess. Went here twice and was not overly impressed either time... the beers were average to good, the lager was rubbish on both days. Didn’t eat. In my opinion you are better off spending time across the road at Spezial, where the air is breathable.

Great beer in a very smoky ambiance. On warmer days (it was below zero) I’d prefer the Schwemme. Friendly but somewhat overworked staff. Decent and fairly cheap hotel rooms (had a view on Spezial from my window) and a fine breakfast. Recommended.

Their own beer served from wooden casks. I found the staff a little unhelpful and don’t rate the Fassla beers as highly as others in Bamberg. Still nice out in the courtyard though.

Very good brewery, all of the beers I had were good. Not a lot of English spoken here, so be prepared. Very smokey, this is a smoker’s brewpub. Right across the street from Spezial, absolutely a worthwhile place to visit. Food is allround good german food.

A very comfortable hotel that has the advantage of brewing it’s own beers.
Multi room layout with an outdoor courtyard for drinking in summer.

Lots of wood, lots of different compartmentalized rooms - each visit a different experience. Cozy, traditional, and non-touristy...but I’d rather hop across the street to Spezial, where the beer is much more to my liking.

"Tip-top" is all I can think to say. With Spezial just out front opening and closing at odd times this place is always lively and shuts for only a few hours each day. Stayed upstairs for two nights in absolute luxury with their fully fitted double rooms (from hostels to this it could have been the Ritz). The beer from the barrels is easily the best in Bamberg for their style. Roland Kalb is a lovely landlord and easily approachable and the staff, patrons, food and set-out could not be any better. Loved it, and promised to return for more nights with the gnomes!!!

Decent brewery, all of the beers I had were good. Not a lot of English spoken here, so be prepared. Very smokey, I would characterize this as the smoker’s brewpub in Bamberg. They have hotel rooms available - these were excellent, clean and very comfortable (and smoke-free), highly recommended. Right across the street from Spezial, absolutely a worthwhile place to visit.
