Beer & Chocolate: Two of My Favorite Things

In a city so committed to its beer it was only a minor surprise to find a chocolate shop in Bamberg turning out truffles made with beer.

The smoked beer truffles at Café am Dom are just the thing for the beer lover with a sweet tooth. Owner Maria Heinreich uses the rauchbier from Schlenkerla to make the truffles. They are quite sweet, but balanced out by the unique smoked beer flavor found in the soft center.

Trust me when I tell you this is an experience you just cannot get in a Whitman Sampler. A visit to this Islandtown shop along Ringleinsgasse is just another reason to love Bamberg.
