Franconian Beer Message Board

Brewery Tour

Hi Ryan... you're not the first person to ask this question, and while there's no definitive answer, there are a number of things that will make your quest rather difficult. 

Firstly, Franconians are conservative by nature. Brewers more so; they won't just start chatting to people about their work. In some cases, it's akin to alchemy, and any questions will be treated with suspicion. Secondly, very few brewers would speak sufficient English for even a casual conversation, nevermind a technical discussion about brewing. Thirdly, some breweries do do tours (Schlenkerla) but not many.

These things combine to explain why you haven't had many responses. There is 1 guy I know who fits the bill, Andy Gaenstellar. Andy brews in Schaid and recieves foreign visitors daily it seems, to the point where I don't know where he finds the time to brew. People just turn up and expect him to drop what he's doing and drink beer with them. With this in mind, please contact him in advance. 

Finally, and most importantly, it's Bamberg, not Bamburg ;)
