The original smoked beer and Bamberg’s specialty for centuries. A dark bottom fermented lager beer, brewed with 100% smoked malt from the Schlenkerla maltings.
In the middle of the old part of Bamberg, directly beneath the mighty cathedral, one can find the historic smoked beer brewery Schlenkerla. First mentioned in 1405 and now run by the Trum family in the 6th generation, it is the fountain of Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer (in German language it’s called ”Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier”). The smoked beer is here at the brewery tavern still being tapped directly from the wooden barrel according to old tradition.
