Crisp-bitter & biscuity recommendations

I admit I also assumed you were looking for recommendations on more hop forward beers and Knoblach for instance would fit the bill.  Also Brauerei Zwanger in Uehlfeld (should visit Prechtel while there if you go).

The list of breweries to visit is excellent.  There are many that could be added.  I'd suggest also Eichhorn in Dorfleins, Zum Goldener Adler in Hoefen. Bayer in Theinheim. I recommend these two because they brew nice balanced beers.  

I could go on and others may have other suggestions.  When I visited Franconia for the first time in 2007 I was really blown away (in a good way) by the really soft, malty beers in Franconia (like Moenchsambacher for instance).  I had never had anything like them before and loved them and still do.  But have also come to love the variety in the region within those traditional styles all the way to the really bitter beers like Knoblach and Zwanger and everything in between.

Let us know how your next trip goes.
