First Franconia trip

To be honest I would consider visiting very good breweries which have good transport connections. There are many very good 'hard to reach' breweries. Also, the difference between the 'best' and the 'average' breweries isn't so big in Franken so i wouldn't worry too much about 'can't miss' breweries. That said, 5 options around Bamberg, easily reached by public transport, would be: 

1. Brauerei Eichhorn, Doerfleins 
2. Brauerei Hummel & Wagner, Merkendorf
3. Forchheim (4 breweries)
4. Brauerei Zehedner, Monchsambach
5. Brauerei Sonne, Bischberg

I would always stress to new visitors to bamberg hat the city itself has so many options for places to drink beer (plus the tourist side) that it's easy to try and do too much. Public transport is fine, but complicated at times, and I see little value in spending 2 hours or so travelling when you have so much in the city. 

Just my penny's worth.
