|Took a trip out to Lichtenfels to visit this long term home brewer who has turned a dream into a reality by having his own brewery and tasting room. |
It's set in an industrial building quite close to the station (15min walk). Very modern setup with the tasting room setup around the brewery. Could be a craft brewery, but isn't. Firstly I would say hat off for doing this, it was a very pleasant experience with excellent food, a warm welcome and cosy atmosphere, in spite of the big open space.
The beers... well, the helles was fine, if a little basic. The Weizen was the best of the 3 on draft, a little sweet but that suits my taste. The Rauchbier was a typical non Bamberg version I would say. Too hoppy, not enough dark malt (though it was dark) and quite astringent. But I don't like to criticize too much.
There are many better breweries of course, but if in the area I would say it's worth a visit for an alternative view of Franconian beer. I doubt I would come back, but as said, kudos to the brewer and I hope he and his business go well.
