The Beers of Franconian Switzerland

Franconia is a region in northern Bavaria that is home to some great beer. Middle Franconia (Mittelfranken) is home to a beautiful forested area known as Franconian Switzerland (Fraenkische Schweiz). This is where you will find several popular breweries favored by the aficionados. I am linking below a website with a list of the breweries (in German).
