Traditional brewery from Bamberg
The Keesmann brewery in Bamberg is a renowned brewery steeped in tradition, known for its high-quality beers since its foundation in 1867. The brewery is still family-owned today and over the years has earned an excellent reputation for its artisan brewing and use of first-class ingredients.
One of the highlights of the Keesmann brewery is undoubtedly its famous Rauchbier, which has caused a sensation beyond the borders of Bamberg. The Rauchbier is brewed in the traditional way and is characterised by its unmistakable, smoky taste. It is created by smoking the malts over open beechwood fires, which gives the beer its unique character. In addition to the smoked beer, Keesmann also offers a variety of other beers, including pilsner, wheat beer, cellar beer and seasonal specialities. All the beers have one thing in common: they impress with their quality and authentic taste.
The Keesmann brewery attaches great importance to regionality and uses mainly local ingredients. The malt is made from Franconian barley grown in the surrounding region, and the hops are also mostly grown in Franconia. This conscious selection of ingredients enables the brewery to brew beers of outstanding quality and to contribute to the promotion of local agriculture.
In addition to the brewery, Keesmann runs a cosy brewery pub that is very popular with locals and tourists alike. In a rustic atmosphere, visitors can enjoy the variety of Keesmann beers there and indulge in Franconian specialities. The inn impresses with its traditional décor and invites you to linger. In addition, the brewery regularly offers brewery tours where visitors can take a look behind the scenes and learn more about the brewing process and the history of the brewery. These tours are a great way to experience Bamberg's beer culture up close and get an insight into the traditional brewing tradition.
Keesmann Brewery is proud of its long tradition, meticulous craftsmanship and passion for first-class beers. By combining traditional brewing methods with innovative approaches, the brewery has succeeded in taking a firm place in the Franconian beer landscape.
