Fässla Brewery - Bockbier tapping

Header picture bock My current header picture belongs to one of the cultural events which is related in Bamberg’s tradition being a beer town. In autumn before the hard winter months begin the local breweries are brewing a special strong beer. When the Bock-beer is available the breweries are having a sort of kick off event when the new beer is tapped. These events are very popular amongst both and older people and especially amongst students. Although everybody knows that it will be overcrowded (sometimes you got to be there as early as 7pm to be admitted to the event) and that you’ll have to wait ages for your beer, it is an absolute must to visit at least one of those events every season.

BockbieranstichThis year the first Bockbieranstich I made it to visit was the one of the Fässla brewery. I went there with Thomas and Fabian and of course I met a lot of other students there, too! When we arrived at 6:30pm the queue to get a beer was humongous! Luckily we met friends who were already waiting there for a while, so we managed to get our first beer within minutes! Due to the mild wheather it was fun to stand at the brewery grounds and we had a good time!
