I really need to catch this blog up one of these days. No time now, though: the brewpubs here in Bamberg open in a few minutes, and today (Monday) is the only full day we'll have here. We arrived yesterday (Sunday) early in the afternoon. We're staying at Brauerei Spezial, and of course we had to try all of the beers there. Several times. We met a couple from Colorado and got into a Schafkopf game. Gaststätte Stilbruch for a couple of beers. Enjoyed a few Rauchbier at Schlenkerla. Meant to visit Brauerei Ambräusianum, but got there minutes after closing time. (They're not open Monday, so it will have to wait until next time.) Accidentally found zum Dominkaner and had plenty more beers and Schnapps before calling it a night.
