    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!

    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.
