We went there today when being in Bamberg for two days on our way home from Austria. The Cafe is located outside / "abseits" the city centre, behind the main rail station. Took a seat in the beergarten due to the fine weather . Not much business at that time of the day, but the service was quite slow anyway. What a pity for a place like that. The beer selection is grande, just wonderful - found seasonals, locals, overregionals, crafts, Belgian etc.. Didn’t try the food but the menue looked fine to me. Prices were ok / bit over standard. I will come back at our next visit to Bamberg.

I think this is the best place in the area for trying different German beers (there are some Belgian beers too). Not centrally located but this was not a problem. Visited it on a Monday afternoon, it was full of people. Service was good, both waiters (a guy and a girl) were speaking English. 5 taps and you can try all of them (beer sampler 200ml of each) Apart from the sampler I tried a nice German pale ale and a very good German IPA. There is food (actually a quite big menu and the plates were looking interesting) but we didnt try it.

First place I visited in Bamberg. I had the luck to be served by the owner, a true beer lover. I let him guide me and I couldn’t have been happier. Everything was perfect and even the food was very good.

Well the hype for this place is a bit over the top. Selection was excellent. Did not try the food. Service was middle of the road as we had problems with the order and the service was very slow even when the place was not full. We were not allowed to sit inside even when the weather was not very nice. The place it self was rather dumpy but it has an excellent selection of beers. Might come back again when the staff is having a better day.

You better "choose" the right waitress/waiter. Service ranges from 0/10 to 9/10 imo. Selection of beers is very good, some more belgian brews would be nice though. Food is simple, but ok. They should probably specialize on

The young guys behind don’t know anything about The beer. The tap lines are an horrible shape, The beer smelled like an old egg...

A fantastic cafe with a focus on Franconian breweries and a small selection of Belgian ales. They have bottles of the interesting Weyermann beers as well. Food is simple pub fare but filling. Gerhard was a great host and chatting with him gave great insight into the current Bavarian beer scene. He even gifted me with a bottle to takeaway! Will return again.

Now that I got the chance to visit the bar too (and not only the biergarten), I must update my review. Ok, simply the best bar in Bamberg and probably in Bavaria (and so in Germany). Nice interiors, friendly service, beer menu which is impressive and prices are more than fair. Always had a great time there, and always got tasty, franconian beer.
