Bamberg’s speciality, a dark, bottom fermented smoked beer, brewed with Original Schlenkerla Smokemalt from the Schlenkerla maltings and tapped according to old tradition directly from the gravity-fed oakwood casks in the 14th century brewery tavern. Its smoky flavor is achieved by exposing the malt to the intense, aromatic smoke of burning beech-wood logs at the Schlenkerla-maltings. After mixing it with premium-class hops in the brew, it matures in 600 year old cellars, deep down in the hills of Bamberg, into a mellow, magnificent-tasting beer. Schlenkerla Rauchbier is a sip of beer history. Drinking a Schlenkerla is like time travel; the beer a living fossil from a brewing world that existed centuries ago. The connoisseur drinks it slowly with relish, but steadily and purposefully. He knows that the second tastes better than the first, and the third even better than the second.
