|I like it, but pubs/bars aren't meant to tick everyone's boxes. Much talk on this forum and similar is about breweries and Kellers etc but Bamberg has a rich drinking culture that doesn't conform to your 'traditional' pubs. It has some of the best cocktail mixers in Germany (Ost bar, Schluckstück, Soda Bar, Dude, schwarzer schaff, Karwenzmann etc etc I like frequenting these places from time to time to get a different perspective, a younger crowd and a different atmosphere. And they all have good in some form. |
Then there are the pubs like Rotenschild, Pelikan, Stohrenkeller, Galerie, Catweasels Castle etc. I don't go into every drinking hole on the Sandstraße but I don't begrudge others enjoying them - they add to the great atmosphere on Saturday nights, especially in summer. And they keep the riff raff out of the pubs I enjoy going to.
At the end of the day, if Strawanza didn't serve direct from the barrel I wouldn't go, I need a good reason to drink bottled beer outside of my house. It's small, has piped and live music and has a young crowd. If you're visiting you probably have bigger fish to fry, but it's always worth a look in to see what they are tapping.
Try it out and see for yourself.
