Visited in August 2019 on a 5-day Bamberg and surroundings trip with Caesar. Interesting specials. Sat outside the entire time. It was so crowded we had to wait in line first to get a table. Took a while to order as well but given how crowded it was that was no surprise. Definitely enjoyed the beers and atmosphere. Very much recommended.
Visited two days in a row. Once we sat outside and once inside. Close to the center as is about everything else here, spacious but not grand, about a dozen beers available. Typical service and prices for the selection. Real star are the beers obviously, amazing condition & I am quite a fan of this brewery so really enjoyed my time here. Highly recommended.
Sunday 9th Sep 2018, lunchtime. Sat on the first table on entering the Biergarten. Looked inside before returning to our slot outside, nice bar room to the right, but the sun was out, so we thought outside was the best option. Four beers on tap (I think), my two were lovely. Friendly service, good food, my Wild Boar dish was awesome. Nice experience all round.
First stop on our Bamberg trip, nice sunny weather so the biergarten was packed with visitors. Had the Pilsener, a wonderful example of the style and just the right thing after a long drive and short walk. Service was minimal, interior looked good.
A little bit farther from the city center than Schlenkerla, but well worth a visit. My personal favorite Zwickl from Bamberg (they just call it "U") and one of thr best beers on my trip the dunkel weizenbock. The food was also delicious. Really happy with the fireplace since it was freezing on our visit in the middle of March. Well worth a visit.
Visited 4.10.17. We were looking forward to sitting in Mahr's, but ended up talking and talking in nearby Keesman, so we came there shortly before closing time. Had one round of good beer and pretzel. Place was quiet, service was hasty but that's understandable considering the time of the day. Next time we'll get there earlier.
