located on greenwood ave and 73rd (technically phinney ridge) lies a quaint german pub that is maybe no more than 300 square feet inside. the size encourages a warm and friendly atmosphere that is etched into the brass plaques which read, "as in germany, share tables with those you do not know yet. prost!"
the highlight of this bar is the multitude of german beers held on tap and in bottle. you can either drink from a pint glass, to a half liter mug, to a liter stein--and for those brave enough, the 3 liter boot (only available to parties of 3 or more). my favorite is the bitburger and the oktoberfest (spaten). i'm not a big fan of their cuisine with their main kitchen appliance the microwave, but food is not what drives me to frequent this establishment.
crowds begin to show around 8:30, and tables are limited. younger crowds surface on the weekends, but i much prefer the regulars who are more laid back, friendly, with less abrasive attitudes.
so come down. even if you go alone, everyone is happy enough to strike up a conversation. i usually play cards while drinking, so if you see me (i'm the token asian) then say hi and i'll deal you a hand.
