German/Bavarian Indoor Biergarten in the East Village of NYC. Opened in 2000 by Sylvester Schneider, a Bavarian native
If you like beer they have got it! Hands down the best Schnitzel and Sauerkraut. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef
A good Bavarian beer deserves an authentic brat with it. Go for the sausage platter and the Weihenstephaner. Thirsty? Get the large litre mug.
Get the baked camembert and spaetlzle. Yummmm.
A Bavarian bierhaus in the middle of Alphabet Cit. Sommelier Michael Madrigale (Bar Boulud): “Best schnitzel in New York City and my favorite beer on draft, Jever, from Northern Germany.”
Huge selection of german beers, outdoor seating is awesome in the spring, summer just be sure to get there early or you won't get a seat
My favorite bar in the EV. Used to live across the street. Pour a little out for 116 @dpmcdono @devinj
German bar.... Great beer, food, and people :-D
Order the Optimator, it's a tasty beer!
My best friend Will lives across the street, call him up and buy him a Giant Beer!
Try the Schweinebraten
Great selection of German beers!
Only for German WC or Euro games.
Yoko Ono waits tables here. Let her recommend a beer because the one you want off the menu will be kicked.
Man up - get a liter.
Start (and maybe end) your night here with a liter of Hofbräuhaus Traunstein and either a Weiner Schnitzel or a Bratwurst Platter!
Great place but rude staffs
Get a pretzel. Ein Prosit!!
It's off menu, but they almost always have Schweinehaxe (roasted park shank), served w sweet stewed red cabbage, a large dumpling, & a dark smoky gravy. Best Teutonic comfort entree in the city.
Mulled wine warms your belly almost as quickly as the Aventinus ice bock* *beware the ice bock. Twice as strong as Aventinus double bock. Tastes like whiskey!
Serious roots reggae. World cup on the biggest tv. Beer. Brats. All of the above.
Solid rendering of German foods and beer, unbeatable spot for summer day drinking! But... Rude (and hectoring!) waitstaff, poor service, bad attitudes.
Get the "large" beer. You basically have to and it will be worth it. Baked camembert and bratwurst are both delicious. Definitely sit outside if you can snag a table.
Everything is fantastic here; I personally love the pretzels, spätzle, and weisswurst.
Have a zwickel and the bratwurst platter. Great during World Cup or Euros matches. When Germany isn't playing, it is more laid back and easy to get a table. When Germany is playing, well, it isn't.
vegetarische Salatteller! Vegetarian
Traditional German beers. Nice spot to sit outside on a beautiful day with a huge beer.
Good beer selection and authentic German food.
Great German beer joint. Cash only.
Andechs Vollbier Hell is the best, along with the Weiner Schnitzel
Lots of fantastic German beers, but start with the two breweries sold exclusively at Zum Schneider: Traunstein and Andechs. You'll be speaking German by your third liter.
Go here for Oktoberfest. Seriously the most fun thing ever. Ein prosit!!!!
One of the most authentic german beer halls in manhattan. Thrown on some lederhosen, sit outside and order a liter and a pretzel.
German brews on tap and four in the bottle.
Beware: Cash only. But the Radi, Bretzel and Obatzda are fantastic. And btw, I am German!!!
They only accept cash!
The pretzels here are the best I've ever had.
great vibe!!! fun atmosphere!!
Speak as much German as you know. It adds to the experience.
Calmer in the winter.
winterbock, wammerl (pork belly), and emüseauflauf (veg gratin). my tummy is very, very happy.
literally the BEST beer in all of NYC. Fresh flown over from Bavaria - some beer not available anywhere else, served perfectly. Amazing vibe. Love it.
