On Saturday, I went to the Bavarian city of Bamberg with Natalie and my visiting friends Kyle and Sara. Bamberg is a cute little town known for having 9 breweries. Given the uniformity of German beer, it was quite nice to have a bit of variety. When we got into town, we parked and stopped at this brewery that makes smoked beer. It had a vaguely bacon after-taste, which was interesting. I don't think it would ever be my go-to beer though. We also ate lunch there, where we tried the delicious stuffed onion. It was quite yummy.

After lunch, we stopped at a lederhosen shop and Kyle and I each bought a set of lederhosen. Pretty sure we are wearing those out tonight for the Germany-Argentina World Cup Final. We hit up about 3 or 4 more breweries and walked all around the very quaint town. I'd definitely recommend Bamberg for a great day trip.
