Hear about the beer witches, who according to legend mixed the beers before the implementation of the German Purity Laws. From anise to oak bark, spruce chips, caraway, bay leaves, pine tree root and St. John's wort, these components later caused brewers to be burned at the stake as witches.
After the tour, decide which brewery you'd like to return to and enjoy a tasting. Choose from a variety of beers and try the popular Bamberger smoked beer.
