    This German beer bar, opened by two Brooklyn residents that grew up in the Black Forest region of Germany, serves up over a dozen traditional brews on tap and all the traditional food to go with it!

    Bratwurst is obviously great, as are those crispy shoestring fries. But the real secret of this place is that they might have the best burger in Brooklyn. Or at least my favorite!

    Awesome brunch spot in Fort Greene. Incredible menu filled with traditional brunch items like French toast and eggs, finished off with the best sausage and biscuits I've had in years. A+ in my book.

    The wurst & beer are pretty much all I like. Definitely leave those "jerk" wings alone. Undercooked with absolutely NO flavor. They were Water Wings. Cool vibe tho. Good spot to get work done

    Schnitzel here is fantastic. We had pork and veal. The build-your-own includes 2 sides and it's totally worth the extra two bucks for the homemade spatzel.

    Got a soup and a bratwurst sandwich for nine bucks with the lunch special. Delicious. Some rare unpasteurized German beer on tap as well.

    If you're into German beer and cuisine then you'll get a kick out of this spot. Huge projection screen on the wall is a nice touch for sports fans.

    Fantastic! Great selection of beers, friendly staff, awesome looking food. Anything would be preferable to the gross abandoned medical center that held this space for years, but this is truly awesome.

    Nice atmosphere, good selection of beers and food. Friendly service. My local go-to for German food.

    You might want to smuggle in coffee from Hungry Ghost down the street so that you can work in this beautiful, skylit, giant space, which at night is a beer garden/German restaurant.

    Rothaus Pils--on tap, nonetheless. One of Germany's best pilsners, and this is the only place in the US that sells it.

    Small beer hall styled restaurant. Don't expect authentic beer hall atmosphere however. It's fully Broolynite. Good beer selection.

    Great restaurant but I'm not a fan of the growing number of alcohol-serving establishments being stroller friendly. I felt like I was in Park Slope.

    Great beer selection, though I was a little ticked off to see I got charged $4.00 for a ginger ale for my friend that wasn't drinking, and they charged me again for the refill. Ridiculous.
