a 20-mile train ride to the north leaves us and our bikes in Bad Staffelstein to ride west and south back to town during the day.

Brauerei-Gasthof Reblitz, closed, very sad because the door menu shows fried carp and draught bockbier with another 4-5 bottles. somewhat relieved later that night when we found the bock pouring at a spot in Ebensfeld.

Brauerei Martin in Unterneuses let us in early for glasses of their dunkel landbier, the only beer they make. toasty and frothy with endless depth and rustic nuance.

Brauerei-Gasthof Leicht in Pferdsfeld, another one-beer brewery. a helles vollbier paired with the house special marinated mackerel made for a happy visit.

Schwanen Bräu in Ebing, about 12 miles north of Bamberg, with their one beer, another dunkel landbier. decent, but a bit too sweet, a bit too watery and a bit dull.

inside Wagner Bräu in Oberhaid, a 5 minute train ride and short walk from Bamberg. noon on a Sunday and we’re the only people inside other than the owners and their friend. definitely a locals place. one on tap, a crisp and clean pilsner.
