Very casual, great selection of brew for the beer lover (they do serve wine but beer works so much better in this venue). Crack peanuts and throw shells on the floor while you are settling in, getting your drinks and deciding on what food to order. We had veal & pork schnitzle, red cabbage, spatzle, warm pretzles, deep fried pickles,... More

We went here for a family gathering. Obviously they have an intense beer selection. That is if you like really good German beer of course. It is a fun and very casual environment. Beer, peanuts, and a great menu of authentic German food. The food goes well beyond standard pub grub. They clearly pay attention to ordering and preparing the... More

If you find yourself in Albany with a few hours to kill, this is a cool place to stop and have a beer. Great selection of German beers on tap and the food is pretty decent too. I oped for the Wurst plate which included two different types of sausage. Both were very good. One note: Take cash as this... More

Five adults went to dinner on a recent Wednesday evening. I forgot that they serve only beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages so I was disappointed when I couldn't have a cocktail. However, the pinot grigio was very good. We ordered assorted items including the pretzel, brussel sprouts, schnitzelwich, reuben, special wurst sandwich, pommes frites (why do they use the french name... More

If you think you're going to order a coors light, you're out of luck. German beer selection is great. You can get drafts in three sizes.( ok 4 but I'm not drinking a glass boot of beer) Food was pretty good. It's nothing fancy, but it was good. Husband liked his wurst plate, I had a Reuben, liked that too.... More

The food is a nice German fare. Their beer selection is great. I prefer the lighte lagers, which were very tasty. However, their selection is very large and will meet all tastes.

Good Food, Great Beer and a fun funky atmosphere made my visit here a great time. The garage like room is basic. You eat on picnic tables but the patrons were friendly and the bartenders were eager to help a beer know nothing like me pick the perfect brew. You order food at the counter and they call you when...
