    Great beer and atmosphere! However, I think they could use a couple more bartenders because they seemed overwhelmed and unhappy. Also my brat took over an hour to get to me...seems a little long.

    Prost! OGBH is a genuine German beer hall. The Hofbrau is imported so you get the real thing. Try the Oktoberfest or Maibock depending on the season, they are delicious!
