This restaurant was established in 1868 by Prussian immigrant Jacob Wirth, and has been a Boston institution for 136 years.
I was fortunate enough to find a seat at the fabled long mahogany bar, and started to do things off right with a pint of Jacob Wirth Special Dark Lager. This beer, along with Jacob Wirth Special Lite Lager are the two house brews, that can be found along side a selection of 26 local beers from Boston, and a deep selection of German/European imports. I was able to enjoy German favorites such Paluaner Hefeweizen, Frankenhiem Alt, Celebrator Dopple Bock, and Raderburger Pilsner, as well as Sam Adams, Harpoon, and Berkshire Brewing just to name a few. The bartender didnít know who brewed the house beers, but I suspect it is one of the local Boston breweries.
This is an exceptional house brew, that must be experienced on draught at this Boston land mark. It was the perfect match to an appetizer of potato pancakes with creme fraiche and smoked salmon. It was even better with the German classic saurbraten, which is sweet and sour braised beef, served over dill spatezle, with red cabbage, and covered with a ginger snap sauce. Great German food and great German beer, made my very short trip to Boston, well wirth it!
