German craft brewer's opinions on Franconian beer scene
Posted by TomM on 2018-05-13 14:21:43
The brewer/owner at Orca Brau, Nuremberg is interviewed for a blog on the Bierfreiheit website:

Some quotes:

>>>For me, Franconia is one of the most interesting beer regions to watch for the next five years or so.  It could go this way or that way but we’ll see more diversity.  We’ll see more breweries doing more interesting things but also a lot of closings as well.  Not necessarily because the beers are not selling but because of lack of investment.  And there are also some cases of the health department going to breweries and saying, “This looks horrible.  You have to close down.”.

>>>They say that in Franconia, the world is still normal because beer and food are still cheap, which is totally stupid.  People in the beer scene in Nuremberg, almost everyone says that Franconian breweries need to charge more.   In a beer garden you’ll pay sometimes only €1.80 or €2.20 for a half-litre.

>>>Some beer gardens are doing well but most of them in my opinion are not doing well financially or in terms of quality of the beer.  But Franconians don’t really care about this-they still have this strong connection to the brewery.  But we will see a change in the future for sure. More breweries will definitely be closing down, while some will do really well.

Thoughts?
