One of Bamberg’s best bars by far. Has a nice garden/patio conducive to hours of sitting. Did not go inside so have no idea what it’s like in there except for toilets...But is not a traditional Bavarian place. The menu is crazy, they have more food than any other place in Bamberg and with Pelikan, it’s a good beery place to go when sick of Bavarian food. The selection is amazing for these parts, and they have many beers hard to find (or impossible) in other parts of Bamberg such as the full Andescher line.

Bamberg’s "beer bar", but really most of the beers are the type of beers you see in export markets. Not bad as a change of pace, though. I thought their menu was a little more interesting than the typical Franken kuche. Service can be spotty on the back patio, if they forget you’re there. Otherwise, a nice place and probably worth a stop if you don’t have time to explore the country breweries, as you can pick off a few of those beers here.

Visited a couple of times over the last weekend of April ’12.
Got to rate this as one of the best (certainly the best for ticking good/intersting stuff) beer venue I’ve been to in Deutschland - forward thinking, great range of beers - particularly the bottles from Weyermanns and an interesting range on tap from around and about Franconia.
Gerhard came and introduced himself on our 2nd visit of the weekend (Saturday afternoon in the beer garden) and kindly shared a bottle with us and had a chat about beer.
Service was good also.

It just doesn’t get any better than this selection-wise in Franconia. First off, they have a few taps from regional breweries, such as Mönchsambacher Lager, and Huppendorfer Völlbier, as well as seasonals once in a while. The bottle list though is what’s the most impressive, over 50 regional beers, from the beautiful Rossdorfer Urbräu, Witzgall Landbier and Griess Kellerbier (for example), to malt mammoths, such as Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock and Kulmbacher Eisbock. Food is very good, and moreover not your typical German fare, so it’s a nice change of pace. A 10-minute walk behind the train station, this can be quite far if you’re in the altstadt, but you have to make the effort. You won’t regret it!

Nice non-touristy cafe/bar close to the Hauptbahnhof, looking like a typical german students pub. Excellent selection, especially around christmas - many superb Bocks available ! If You are lucky, You may have a chat about franconian beerswith the manager Mr. Schoolmann; a very friendly and knowledgeable man....

Not very special atmosphere, but the people were nice and the food good. Selection is ok, with a few things offered on tap that you can’t get in Bamberg usually, but I was there during Sandkerwa, so most were already at the fest. Good place for a break from the typical Franconia beerhall.

Nice selection of german beers, friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere. The times i have been there ( mostly mid day ) it has never been to busy. There are a nice beer garden as well, and parking is possible nearby..

The best place for fresh franconian beers on tap in Bamberg, located an easy walk from the city centre. 5 beers on tap, and a good bottle selection as well. Food is also good, ate on both my visits here. Nice little beer garden as well. A must visit when in Bamberg.
