Beer for breakfast? You can and should, at least once, at this new waterfront bierhaus with a fun trifecta: beer, sausage, and ambience. On a Saturday brunch, we added a pint of Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen, one of more than a dozen rotating German, American, and Belgian brews on tap, to our knackwurst, scrambled eggs, home fries, and toast for a perfect meal. The deck can be busy, and the interior is a bit sports-bar-ish and clamorous in a good way, a chummy place for sausages—say, merguez (Moroccan-spiced lamb) and würzinge (spicy chicken and pork)—on Firebrand buns with Kennebec fries washed down with a Veltins pilsner or a Kölsch ale. Try obadzta, an addictive German cheese spread, house-made with cream cheese, brie, beer, and spices and served with a basket of bread and a big soft pretzel, the Lokal burger, and wiener schnitzel, and you’ll become a regular, guaranteed. Round up friends to order the eisbein or the wurst platter (eight sausages, sauerkraut, fries, green beans, seasonal pickles, pretzels, obadzta, and salad, $65), or drop in for some night-capping chocolate stout ice cream or Lindeman’s framboise sorbet (both $5). Beer for dessert? Now, that’s a thought. Serves lunch and dinner daily.
