Visited a couple of times with my parents, great cosy traditionel countryside brauhaus. Not far from Bamberg, placed in a smaller village, easy to park close by. Seems very familyrunned, in a nice way. Cosy atmosphere, friendly service, cbeers served in good condition, and food are typical franconian, cheap prices. For sure worth a visit ;-)

The interior is a bit dull, surely old, but it doesn’t manage to give the good impression of other bars. The service is flexible and allows for multiple samples; although the choice in the end is for the splendid Raucherla; also the number of beers available is not bad. I got a shot of their Bockbier Schnaps, and it’s very good too (sweet, herbal and hopped).

I biked here out of Bamberg. It was the first open brewery I found on a long bike ride. I sat outside at long picnic tables with the children’s play area in the back, making this feel very authentic. Only other locals during lunch on Monday, and the server did not speak any English. It was a relaxing spot to eat in the shade.Low prices for food and beer, which was great. I believe this place had more beers available than any other brewery I went to in Germany.

Just around the corner from Brauerei Wagner. The beergarden was rather crowded so we ended up sitting inside. We all had dinner here. Typical Franconian pub grub, which I like! Impressing beer range: 6 beers on draught and 2 bottled beers. This is for me the main reason why I give Hummel higher rating than Wagner. Räucherla Märzen and Kellerbier were my favourites. Also a decent Maibock Hell. (Hell can sometimes be decent....) (Visited April 29th 2012)

Visited 27.04.2012. Traditional nice Brauereigaststätt with a beer garden in the backyard. Surprisingly many beers on tap to be located in such a small "Dorf". Their smoke beer was good. Food was ok.

Visited March 2012. One of the best brewery taps I visited. Lots of wood and high ceilings, and a bright and cheery atmosphere. The food looked good, but I’d eaten at Goller. Friendly service. There was a plasma TV in one room, but thankfully it was off. I thought the wooden hanger on the table showing the beers available was a good idea, as at some of the taps I went to it was hard to tell what was on. There were 6 draught beers on. I had 4 of them and all were solid with the Raucherator being my favourite. Would like to go back, spend more time and have a meal. Great place.

Traditional Brauereigaststätte, not too dark interior. Really a locals place, but visitors are welcome. Friendly service, good value food. Very big beer selection, esp. for the area, normally 8-10 beers at the same time, half on tap. All in 0,25 and 0,5 litre available. Good beers. Outside seating at the back.

Typical Bavarian brewhouse interior. Nine or so beers available, 4-5 on tap. Tried the kellerbier, rauch and pils and found them acceptable with the rauch perhaps the best, but certainly didn’t get the dirty character my friend Ernest experienced, so either our tastes are vasty different or we had different kegs/batches.

Surprisingly disappointing. All three beers (pils, weizenbock, dunkler bock) we tried were very dirty (concrete, DMS, rotten fruit, old socks, etc.) and the place itself had a rather odd retirement home feel to it. Service was friendly and polite (smiles even!). Didn’t try any food. The little wooden hanger at each table with the laminated pics of available beers gave the impression of a trendy American brewpub. Despite the high ratings here, in TAR’s and my opinion, you should skip this place in favor of the far superior Höhn in Memmelsdorf and (of course) the world-class Gänstaller Drei Kronen in Strassgiech.

Visited 14/7/2011. I Managed to catch the direct lunchtime 917 bus from Bamberg and had about 1.5 hours in the pub before it went back. It was a hot day and all the customers (and brewery staff) were sat outside in the courtyard. The three beers sampled were good quality, the pork steak with fried potatoes and kraut tasty and the service efficient and friendly. Prices were cheap. Would definitely visit again - a great experience.
