Visited July 2013. Completely different experience to my first visit. The corpulent, disinterested waitperson gave me a bottled beer when I asked for a draught and then overcharged me. She couldn’t have been any more lazy, unhelpful, or inattentive. There were some strange locals in. First visited March 2012. Was here about lunchtime and huge plates of food were being served that looked good. The place was nearly full and the service was a bit slow because of it but still friendly. There are two dining rooms, one with the taps. Not really a beery place but pleasant. The beer was quite good, I had the Lager Hell and Zwickel on tap and Sonnenbock and Dunkel in bottle. The 906 bus runs from the center by way of the Markusplatz and stops across the street.
A short visit, very easily done by bus from the Bamberg central bus station. Local and authentic, unlike the more tourist-y places in Bamberg, but friendly and smiling service didn’t follow from that. Disinterested and indeed grumpy. Pretty good, crisp hellesontap.
Cozy and friendly (read: getting a little shabby, but quite unpretentious), really noticed the ’village’ qualities despite this being a close suburb. Very friendly service and loud patronage (though I didn’t much appreciate the informality of a refused menu and the waitress yelling back into the kitchen to see what was available), to say nothing of the board games. Beers have been hit or miss for me, haven’t had much luck with bottles but the two different times I’ve had them draught, they were superb. Heady compliment: in my ten years of experience in Germany, the most delicious Sauerbraten/Klöße/Rotkohl was eaten here in May 2011.
Family run Gasthof, with restaurant and rooms, some in the Gasthof, some 200 m away in the Gästehaus, very quiet.
Normally two beers on tap (Helles & Zwickl), plus bottled Dunkel (Zunft Trunk), Pils and Weizen. The parents run the Gaststätte and hotel, oldest son is the brewer, younger son is the cook. Both beers and food are consistently of a high quality and very good value for their money.
Easily reached by bus or bike from Bamberg.
A nice brewpub and "Gästehaus" in the centre of Bischberg. Mostly local patrons drinking the awesome Hell, Pils or Zwickelbier. Good food and friendly service, but it is an advantage to understand and speak a little German. Limited outdoor seating. (Visited June 27th 2011)

amazing family-owned and operated brewery. cozy, warm and sunny interior. draft pils and kellerbier were some of the finest-made franconian lagers I’ve ever had. super-friendly family members were engaging and jovial during our three visits over the course of two days. extremely cheap bottles to-go of amazingly fresh and well-made lager. I need to come back here.

Good spot, mostly because I like the beers. Typical Frankenpub vibe, old men in the corner sort of thing. Nice blaue zipfel. The beers are damn fine, though, which is the main attraction for me. They have a couple of accounts in Bamberg’s Innenstadt district if you’re too lazy to pedal the 20 minutes to Bischberg.
