Great Bars 2011: Biertgarten Haus

While the craft-beer renaissance has brought scores of good beer bars to town, this one has something the rest lack: a spacious year-round patio with an outside bar, occasional live music, and long communal hardwood tables perfect for making new friends. The knowledgeable bartenders will guide you through the 25 tongue-twisting German beers available in bottles and drafts. And bread, mustard, and cheese have never seemed like such an inspiring combination as they do in Biergarten Haus’s pretzel rolls, an excellent drinking snack.
