Beer by the Liter on the Bowery
Think about your favorite beer spot.
Now, picture Paul Hogan as Crocodile Dundee saying, “That’s
not a beer spot. This
And now you’re picturing Paulaner Bräuhaus & Restaurant NYC
, probably the German-est beer hall
and brewery in the US of A. It’s opening Friday night, so cancel whatever you’ve got going on
This place is legit: the original brewery operation in Germany has been run by Bavarian monks for 375 years,
and this location has six special beers to call its own (three permanent and three seasonal). You’re going
to eat things you can’t pronounce (bauernwurst or kaesespaetzle, anyone?
) and drink things you can’t refuse (like
full-liter glasses of their Salvator Double Bock).
Seating-wise, you’ve got choices. To the right, there’s a big brick-walled room
full of efficiently lined-up tables. That’s the lunch/dinner
option. The group option. The clanking-brews-with-strangers option.
To the left, beyond all that incredibly beautiful copper beer-making equipment, there’s the bar. Just a
long, wooden paradise of red leather stools and gleaming taps.
Oh, and we should mention they’ve got a handful of wines on the menu, too.
Which should be good for a laugh.
