    College types and nabe trendsetters binge on high quality brews and wursts. Wine on tap and truffle fries offer a change from the typical beer garden. Mixed crowd gives the UN a run in the diversity

    Cash only. Seats 40-55. Outdoor seating. Great wait staff. TRY THE BEERMOSA!!!!! So glad I did. They're awesome and fairly strong. Not unlimited though I think they were $4 each. Def worth it!!!!

    Currywurst outside of Berlin is hard to find. Their spin on this classic dish is really great and makes it a touch upscale. You can even have the fries replaced with Cous Cous :)

    Grab a sunny spot on the street-facing patio, tuck into currywurst and brats at the German-infused restaurant, or grab happy hour cocktails at the swank bar.

    Enjoy an awesome selection of beers from all over the world at this Harlem hot spot – it gets crowded. Try their Bratwurst, Bier Steak Burger or Continental Board.

    Great beer selection. Truffle fries used to be better, still delicious though. Loud at times, but overall a great place. Bring back the cute French waitress!

    They've just added Maibock to their list of amazing beers. If you haven't had this before you need to. Take it from an ex-pat!! :)

    Thrilled the place is (finally!) open. Good selection (see link), fantastically friendly manager (Donald). Adds life to the block. Thx to all-cement surfaces, acoustics are a little rough, though. Read more

    My favorite happy hour spot in Harlem. The staff is friendly and the Fruli is a must if you're not really into "beer" like me

    Heads up: you know that sweet free beer you've been waiting for when you've checked in that 10th time? Brace yourself for sadness, it's basically the size of a thimble and only the house choice. :-(

    Truffle fries are a must! Their new summertime sangria ($8/glass) is delicious and packed with watermelon and peach.

    truffle fries are delish. also be sure to try the reissdorf kolsch, the hofbrau, fruli, duvel or the fuller's (that last one is simply for my own nostalgia)

    Great beers, love the small glasses for trying new ones. Steer clear of the salmon quesadilla, and beware it's a cash-only spot.

    5:30 on Saturday... A lot of hipster parents and their infant kids. Seriously, at least one per table. Just kinda odd for a beer garden

    Kind of disappointed there was no outside seating, but they did leave the front doors open as it was a nice day out. Decent selection of beer and cod empanadas were tasty.
