Bamberg Weekend

These are some random pictures from over the weekend. Posting pictures of every Schlenkerla, Spezial or Mahrs beer I drank would boring, cruel -- or both.

Cream of Cauliflower soup and a beer at Spezial. The perfect lunch.

One of the pubs you should visit if you have time is Der Pelikan. They always have some interesting beers and they do some good Thai food if you need a change from all that pork.

One of their standard draft beers is the Huppendorfer Vollbier from Brauerei Grasser.

Red Curry at Der Pelikan. Very good and a nice change from Schnitzels

They had the Fastenbock (Lenten Bock) from Brauerei zur Sonne in nearby Bischberg. They do a  real nice kellerbier and their fall bock is usually very good. This one was OK, but the level of butterscotch (diacetyl)  was a little to high for me.

Sonne Fastenbock. 

Bamberg seems to have an abnormally high number of tourists for March. There is a summer long Gardening Exposition in Bamberg this summer, which may mean people are coming early because things are pretty booked this summer. So I took my Schlenkerla outside to the street...

Too many tourists at Schlenkerla, so I stood outside in the cold.

Another non-pork meal...

Chicken Breast with Bärlauch sauce at Spezial

Das Gute Mönschambacher Lagerbier at Cafe Abseits

The famous Schnitzel Sandwich at Cafe Abseits. Not to be missed.

Griess Kellerbier. If you like hops you'll like this.

Oh yes! A Grasser Huppendorfer Vollbier! It is coined as a “full beer”, a term which is also given to the immense majority of German beers. It is a deep golden beer, with a malty aroma with creamy yeast. Beer is indeed versatile enough to be paired with food, providing both complementary and contrasting taste.
