Most Catholic Area in Bavaria

Re Andrew's question, I'm not sure what you mean about Lenten? Of course beers are stronger around this time (Fastenbier etc), but I don't think this has any bearing on what is brewed through the rest of the year. It's a bit like bock beer in Autumn, or Christmas beer in the UK (Festbiers, like Harveys or Bathams). 

It's certainly a Catholic area, the most Catholic in Bavaria.

This is going back a bit, but anyway...Which area is the most Catholic -- Oberfranken? More so than Oberbayern? I suppose I could just google it.

I'd think Franconia as a whole couldn't be more catholic than Bavaria, since Mittelfranken is so Lutheran.

When Mom visited us in Erlangen many years ago, she wanted to go to church on a Sunday. So I took her to the big cathedral in Nuernberg. She doesn't speak much German at all (from her university days), but spotted that I'd brought her to a Lutheran service, not a Catholic one. 

Duh, I should've taken her to Bamberg.
