Beer buddies often find it difficult to agree on where to go on their next trip in the region with the highest density of breweries. This is because every Upper Franconian knows another great beer from another great brewery. But be sure not to miss any of these:
Bamberg smoked beer ("Rauchbier") is made using smoked malt, which gives it its characteristic aroma and reminds you a bit of smoked ham.
Three female brewers from Upper Franconia put their heads together to brew a beer especially for the ladies. They dubbed their creation "Holladiebierfee" (meaning "Hello the beer fairy").
Kulmbach is home to the Bavarian Brewery Museum. This 3,000 square metre complex is a place where visitors can immerse themselves in the historical art of beer brewing.
Upper Franconia has introduced an experience that unites beer and education in perfect harmony. At Maisel's Brewery Museum in Bayreuth, you can go on a tour with a brewer's drayman.
"Nothelfer" (emergency helper) beer is brewed under the gaze of the "Basilica of the Fourteen Holy Helpers" and was named after the 14 saints who, in turn, gave this impressive pilgrimage church its name.
