I love German food and have lamented the lack of a decent German restaurant - no more!
Das Bierhaus is known for its beer, but I'm not a beer drinker, so I can only say the list is varied and very impressive with drafts available in .3, .4, or .5 liters. The wine list is very short (this is a BEER place!), but offers something for every taste. I enjoyed a very nice Gewurtztraminer - not as much of the distinctive spicy note as I might like, but flavorful and the perfect choice for this food.
We started with a cheese plate - blue, gouda, baby bel, an awesome gruyere. The housemade rye bread had been toasted slightly to give it more crispness with the cheese. The star of the show was the entree, with fabulous side dishes. We both opted for Jager "Hunter" Schnitzel. I chose Kasespatzle as a side, and my partner opted for both spicy fries and red cabbage. (The $4 charge for a second side was well worth it, and I will add red cabbage next time!) Our plates came out with a HUGE piece of veal that had been pounded thin, but left just thick enough to have wonderful texture and flavor; it was also amazingly tender. I looked at it and announced I could never eat all that - and proceeded to demolish it. Ah, the Jager sauce - they could sell that stuff! It's a deep brown sauce (just thick enough to actually be considered gravy) with mushrooms and the most wonderful peppery "zing". I think you just have to taste it. My spatzle came out as a molded dish, about 1 1/2 cups (yeah, it was big); the spatzle were a perfect al dente and were blended with cheeses to make the best spatzle I've ever had (including what I make myself.) My partner's red cabbage was the best blend of tangy and sweet - I know that because I swiped a piece; he was not sharing his red cabbage! The fries, which he ordered spicy, were a bit much for me, but he loved them. (On a scale of 1 to 10, I said a 5 and he said more like a 2 or a low 3.)
The bar is central to the room, with tables scattered around the rooms. It was noisy (it's a beer garden), but not disruptively so. We were told the downstairs is open Friday and Saturday and is quieter and more romantic - reservations suggested. Other days you access the bar with a staircase, but I had no trouble, even though I use a cane. We'll be back soon, downstairs, to try the Sauerbraten. This place is a total winner!
