The day started out threatening rain -- which was OK because it kept things sort of cool. And it never did rain so that is even better.
It was an uneventful day -- which is also good. As we road thru Miltenberg it was too early for the Brauhaus Faust tap room to be open, so we had to settle for staring longingly at the brewery.
We were riding mostly thru the Spessart "Natural Park" - which means mostly forest. Some nice scenic views.
By lunch we were in Wertheim, which is across the river from the Kreuzwertheim, home of Spessart Bräu.
Where we stopped they had a Dunkel and Pils on tap. Both were good, but not as good as the Faust the previous evening.
Just after three we arrived in Markheinfeld and stopped at a riverside cafe before checking in to our hotel.
Marktheidenfeld is home to Martinsbräu but there tap room is closed on Thursday. Not a problem, because the town is very loyal to its beer is available everywhere.

I like their logo....
Heading back to our hotel, we had a last dunkel on the terrance as the sun set (quite late on the longest day of the year)
