20 minutes from Bamberg by bus 907 / 917. Get off at Merkendorf Kirche.
Wagner is right around the corner, but, alas it was closed today. Two great things about Hummel are #1: they have lots of beers on tap. 9 or 10 today. #2: 250ml pours, and no one laughs at you (at least not at your face). You can sit in the beer garden and go through the lineup at your own pace and don’t have to drink half liters of each. For me, that’s great.
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 ;-)
Visited in 2011 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)
