    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.”

    Fantastic sidewalk seating, German food and drink options and without a doubt, the top NYC viewing party for the German National Team or any big Bundesliga games.

    Andech's German beer on tap!!! I believe that this is the only place in the US that has Kloster Andech's beer on tap. A must visit when in NYC! The food is good and the service is great!

    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.

    Love sitting outside on a beautiful sunny day drinking German beer. But food is worth coming even if you have to sit inside. On weekends get the Hax'n special if you love pork and yumminess.

    We tried the pork roast and the special goose. The meat was delicious and obviously the beer was great. Overall this is a great place to get some amazing food for cold weather.

    Who needs to drink any other beer when there is Spaten Optimator from Munich here on tap? Dark, strong, fruity, malty, creamy and with a caramel after taste. I love it and this a great German place!

    Beer and pretzel were so good I didn't have a chance to take a pic before taking a bite. Beer hall style tables are good for groups.

    This place is excellent and the food is very authentic. Get the Schweinsbraten with Knödel. Also, get a Radler, it’s not on the menu, but they know how to do it!

    The special Pork Shank is crispy perfection on the outside, tender on the inside and comes with great Bavarian sides. Just be prepared, skip lunch if you must to fit this gargantuan serving in!

    Munich meets Loisaida. Cheap brats, great outdoor seating, and a friendly staff always willing to give a recommendation.

    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.

    A neighborhood gem that just so happens to be one of the best places to drink huge beers and eat German food in the city. Bring friends

    The best beer gardens in Bavaria aren’t new: they’re old, well-worn places with big mugs of traditional brews. 4 seasonal beers including Paulaner Salvator & Ayinger Celebrator are on the menu. Read more

    Prost! This is a great spot for watching football (the one where you play with your feet) and in general for beer or hanging out

    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 a massive pretzel and some beer from Bavaria. Awesome outdoor seating makes this one of our favorite places in Alphabet City when the weather warms up.

    Go during a weeknight and order a few things from the menu. You'll never have the opportunity to if you're just there for beers on the weekend.

    Start (and maybe end) your night here with a liter of Hofbräuhaus Traunstein and either a Weiner Schnitzel or a Bratwurst Platter!

    Awesome selection of beers, nice outdoor area - and real Germans as servers. Show up in Lederhosen and this place is a home run.

    The freshly baked Brezeln (pretzels) are delicious and do a great job of soaking up all the beer you just drank.

    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.

    Get there early as they get pretty packed. Oh, and if you can go for Oktoberfest, then definitely make the trip, get some beers and dance on the tables!

    Grab a table early on the corner at this Alphabet City beer garden. After a couple of Spatens, take a stroll to East River Park.

    Schweinebraten is the shiz. Braised tender pork and dark beer gravy was so delicious. Comes with a side of various salads.

    If you are a homesick German guy you definitely should visit this venue. Eat one of the delicious pork shanks and gulp a Hefeweizen and you'll getting better in no time.

    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.

    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.

    Yoko Ono waits tables here. Let her recommend a beer because the one you want off the menu will be kicked.

    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!
