The "Schlenkerla" is certainly the most famous brewery in Bamberg. Its original name goes back to the former brewery owner Andreas Graser: one day, while unloading barrels, the horses trampled him, and he injured himself badly. Because he then swung his arms while walking, he was popularly called Schlenkerla. This mockery name was then transferred to the brewery, so that the actual name "Heller-Bräu" is hardly familiar.
