How do ya’ make a good beer? Well, it should at least taste good! Okay, we are not exactly people of many words here in Upper Franconia. But this plays no role when it comes to our beer. It’s been tasting great since 1670. Why? First of all, we are brewers with a passion. Second, because we carry our old world craftsmanship, as well as our hometown heritage, close to our hearts. Third, we work with a reputable respect for our natural ingredients. And last but not least, because we feel that Mahr’s Bräu in Bamberg’s Wunderburg is one of the most beautiful locations in the world.

That’s the way it is, and the way it should be. Prost!
