Booklet "The Beer Drinkers Guide to Bamberg"

A website is a great source of information, but its kind of hard to stick in your back pocket when walking the streets of Bamberg. I have collected the best information from this site (and more) and included a map showing all the breweries and many other interesting beer spots. The booklet is a 28 page PDF but it is constantly growing. That's not a problem because you will receive free updates thru the end of 2015 when you purchase the booklet for $5

Purchase the Booklet for $5


A Kindle version is available as well:
The Beer Drinker's Guide to Bamberg


Now Available! iPhone/iPad App

And now you can buy a version for your iPhone or iPad on the Apple App Store or your Android device on the Play Store.




Franconian Brewery Cards


These are for a German game called Quartet, the rules of which seem only slightly less complex than fizzbin. But no matter, each card in the 32 card deck comes with a pircture of a Franconian brewery, complete with important information and a picture of their beer coaster. Think of them as Franconian Brewery Trading Cards.

The deck retails for €3.80 in the Bamberg area, but here it is only $5.00 plus $2.00 shipping and handling.

Bamberger Dialekt

This new 80 page booklet (size 8" by 5 1/2") written by Lieselotte Tomaschek is both funny and practical. It has translations of hundreds of expression into both formal German ("Hoch Deutsch") and English -- even some that are beer related such as "a U" (meaning "one Ungespundetes bier")
