Bamberg photos. I was most excited about Bamberg, as this is where smoked beer originates from. We passed by the Shlenkerla brewery, and managed to get back there for some beer. Unfortunately, this was the least "polite" place we visited in Germany, with an old grizzled bar lady that gave two shits about american tourists wanting to sample smoked beer. At least I was able to buy a few bottles to take with us on the cruise.
