I was at the Plank brewery during the summer (it's not a weizen brewery, they are a normal brewery whose weizen is very good, but i digress). 

Let me just clarify that "being popular amongst students" was more a comment directed at his raising of the prices with a crowd that, one could argue, won't be particularly offended, as they are coming to an event that is 'hip' and has other attractions such as live music. Herr Michel has tried to place the 'brand' in a much more 'cult' sphere. He tries to pretend he's a cool American-type craft beer brewer, and at least to less cynical people, it works, hence the 0,33cl bottles - that's just not Franconian. I'm only 35 myself, and I agree that it's good that they are drinking good beer, but I'm not sure how many of those return the next week for a beer without the crowds and music. 

Even though I bang on relentlessly about my preference for beer from the barrel and though the U is much better suited to it with it's subtle flavours, I would still visit the place, as I do all the other Bamberg breweries. But I've had the U ocassionally from the barrel over the last few yesrs' at events etc and it's just not as good as it was. The Helles (which you would have had from the barrel, as there were no keg beers before Stefan took over) is also inconsistent at best and the pils... well, I tried it once and left half of it. 

It is much lamented by some on this forum, and others shrug their shoulders and say they can't taste the difference. But at the end of the day, why would I not visit what was once my favourite Bamberg brewery that remains a beautiful pub?
