Ridgewood Now Has A Heavy Metal German Beer Hall
June 22, 2015 - Picnic Time
Drinking oneself into a faint seems to be a informative norm for Germans such that they even have a word for it: bierleichen, or “beer corpse.” It’s also a name of one of Ridgewood’s newer bars, a Seneca Avenue drink gymnasium and steel bar that distinguished a central grand opening this past weekend. True to a name, Bierleichen is pouring 10 opposite bottle beers with a concentration on brews from Germany like Hofbrau, Jever and Kostrizer. And of march we can get any of them served in a boot.
Besides beer, they’ve got “Schnapps,” high ethanol spirits that are on a harder side (101 explanation Five 20 Bierschnapps) and some-more fruity (56 explanation Schladerer Edel-kirsch Cherry Liqueur). Another German specialty: a Shotenfreude ($4)—a play on schadenfreude—which buys “a shot of cheap, comfortable vodka” with all deduction benefitting a New York City Coalition Against Hunger.
To sentinel off drink corpse, spin your courtesy to Bratwusrt or Knackwurst ($9) on a pretzel hurl with pickles and kraut or a big, pickled Pretzel ($5) with an discretionary side of obatzda ($2), a drop done from cheese and beer. Brooklyn-based Yeah Dawg is also providing vegan, gluten-free and soy-free sausages done from carrots, beets, potatoes, honeyed potatoes, a mix of gluten-free flours, spices and spices.
They’re not a normal venue, though they’re doing some live music on special occasions, and mime shows on destiny Sundays and “goth” nights on name Mondays. All a time, try your palm during some foosball or chill out in a behind garden, that boasts some rug chairs and cruise tables underneath a sun.
