The Rest of Day One in Bamberg

I sometimes find the Schlenkerla Fastenbier a bit sweat so that one is enough. It is much drier this year (confirmed later by Matthias Trum that it had a couple extra months in the lager tank) so I had four. But I did have the regular Märzen in the middle to "clean my palate.

I like the little window were you order the beer and took the opportunity to take a picture of a barrel just after tapping.

My father was a bit jet-lagged so he called it an early night. Frank and I stopped by the Blaue Glocke for a couple of beers from Brauerei Först in Drügendorf. I think this is the only place in Bamberg to drink this beer.

It was getting late but we decided to stop in at Pizzini for a night cap. We shared an Andechser Dunkel and a Spezial Lagerbier. A fine way to cap off the first night in Bamberg.
