Complete with massive garage doors and trees strung with twinkling lights, space spreads out the action between spacious open-air picnic tables, fire pits, and an indoor bar area.
It embodies true Teutonic spirit-raising with a modern twist, where German and American beers flow by the half and full liter, joining two-fisted eats like sausages, burgers, and warm Bavarian pretzels.
