2012 BEER BAR OF THE YEAR: BIERHAUS NYC
With an authentic “Oktoberfest year round” atmosphere that attracts visitors from across the globe, Bierhaus NYC has established itself as one of the nation’s most well-known beer houses in a very short period of time. Opening its doors on March 10, 2011, Bierhaus NYC is a Bavarian-style restaurant and bar located in the heart of New York City. Inspired by an actual beer house — Hofbräuhaus München in Germany — the theme and décor help patrons feel as though they are half way across the world in Bavaria. Filled with long wooden tables used for communal seating, a 50-foot balcony and a glass ceiling, it’s no wonder this beer house has made it to the top.
Bierhaus NYC’s full-service bar offers 24 taps and six varieties of the most famous and beloved German beer, Hofbräu, that changes with the seasons to keep guests coming back for more. Even if new guests are unfamiliar with the beer selection, there’s no need to worry. Bartenders and servers go through a comprehensive training in which they taste each of the beers with various food parings. Staff members also are able to relate each beer’s taste and body to others with which guests might be more familiar.
It is truly the staff’s dedication to the theme and guest experience that has helped define Bierhaus NYC’s success. Staying true to the theme and educating guests on Oktoberfest traditions helps the bar offer a lively and fun atmosphere unlike any other in NYC. “Erst mach dein Sach dann trink und lach!” First take care of business, then drink and laugh!
