I like it, but pubs/bars aren't meant to tick everyone's boxes. Much talk on this forum and similar is about breweries and Kellers etc but Bamberg has a rich drinking culture that doesn't conform to your 'traditional' pubs. It has some of the best cocktail mixers in Germany (Ost bar, Schluckst├╝ck, Soda Bar, Dude, schwarzer schaff, Karwenzmann etc etc I like frequenting these places from time to time to get a different perspective, a younger crowd and a different atmosphere. And they all have good  in some form. 

Then there are the pubs like Rotenschild, Pelikan, Stohrenkeller, Galerie, Catweasels Castle etc. I don't go into every drinking hole on the Sandstra├če but I don't begrudge others enjoying them - they add to the great atmosphere on Saturday nights, especially in summer. And they keep the riff raff out of the pubs I enjoy going to.

At the end of the day, if Strawanza didn't serve direct from the barrel I wouldn't go, I need a good reason to drink bottled beer outside of my house. It's small, has piped and live music and has a young crowd. If you're visiting you probably have bigger fish to fry, but it's always worth a look in to see what they are tapping.

Try it out and see for yourself.
