|How long will you be here, and are you absolutely limited to "only" those places?|
Not a fan of Hubner beer, though I've not been to the place. The beer's awfully sweetish, like Huppendorfer Vollbier. Also not been to Martin, can't even picture the beer in my mind at the moment.
Echoing Mark & Barry, Wagner in Merkendorf is excellent, well worth a long session, owing to the diversity of beer on offer. And then there's Hummel across the village, with its big lineup. Witzgall is an old favourite of mine, but I don't know if I'd plan for several hours there. Maybe there *and* Först in a day.
Forchheim would be a high recommendation, maybe having lunch at Eichhorn, a post-lunch Seidla at Hebendanz, and then setting in for the long haul at Neder. Oh, and another very lovely Seidla of gravity-barrel Hell at Greif, if during the week. And if you happen to find Neder to be less than great that day, off to Vogelgässla for the Först. Food's good at Hebendanz too.
So all that...if I were to recommend one single town, it'd be Forchheim, by a mile, though not on a Sunday or Monday owing to opening hours. Also not on Saturday due to Greif being closed. Greif's actually a must IMO. Plus, the town is quite impressive, though much tinier than Bamberg, but also TOURIST-FREE. Loaded with characters.
As I said below/above, "session" implies drinking a fair bit, assumedly beyond what you should be driving with, so I figure you're looking into the transit possibilities.
