Been here before, but a while ago. This trip arrived early on friday evening before hunahpu day. We sat right away, but it was packed by the time we left. The food is authentic german fare - pretty good. The beer is nice geeky stuff and better selection than I remembered. Unfortunately, many that I was hoping for were out (both tap and bottle). I just missed taps of Cantillon and Angry Chair german chocolate. There were still plenty of interesting brews - lots of sours/wilds and locals. Between our group we got Rapp Berliner, Struise Weltmerz, Ola Dubh 21 - among others. They have some nice bottles to-go as well. I noticed a Jester King and a one off St. Somewhere. The setup is kind of a mess. They have a video screen with the tap list, but it kept switching between bottles/taps, wasn’t up to date and was far away (other than that...). They did pass around a new sheet after a bit. The server was very nice, but you could tell they were a little overwhelmed. Overall, I would go fairly regularly if lived in the area -- for the solid, presumably rotated, tap list and because I’m a sucker for german food. I’d probably aim for an off time though.

As a half German that appreciates hefes and other lagers, this place is heaven. Love this place. Could live here.

Clutter everywhere. Boxes and bottles and junk all over, it really crowds the place. I walked around looking for the bottles for sale all over but I stopped too much clutter. The front room smells musty like a locker room. They do have rare beers but not everything is cold it wasn’t explained well and the server didn’t want to give me the bottle list. This place has potential. It’s highly overrated like the placed in Orlando

Loud rambunctious German style bar and restaurant. Good selection, not all of it is refrigerated. Staff is slightly knowledgable but may need a little more training when handling higher end products. I love that I can get some potato pancakes and a local beer, and walk out with a nice bottle or two. Worth checking out.

Great beer selection, but not much else. Tough place if you have friends who are not just into beer. Oh well they are great at what they do and that’s beer! Food is typical German/heavy greasy fare. Service was awesome though!

Visited here in mid-March 2013. Cool little German restaurant tucked away in a suburban strip mall. Has at least 40 rotating taps and too many bottles to count. Tap list is up on a rotating electronic screen with prices, abv and description - brilliant. Some thing for everyone’s tastes - lots of rare stuff, some locals, and more German beer than you can shake a stick at. Menu is huge with plenty of German entries and some American fare. Eclectic decorations - kind of like somebody’s basement in the Midwest. Servers were energetic and knowledgeable. Would frequent if I live in the TB area.

Plenty of bar seats but does get crowded. Many times has germany music. Good atsmophere and food is very good. Beer selection is excellent with many options for bottle beer to go.

I only wish I could go here more often. The place has the feel of a German Beer hall / restaurant but has beers from around the world. AND these are not just any beers, there is a fantastic selection of beers at this place. US, Belgian,British, and of course German beers were VERY well represented here. Most of the tap beers were German but that was a great thing as that way they were likely to be fresh and from what I tried, they were. Service was friendly and fast. The food was very good and priced very reasonably ($6 for lunch). Some of the bottles may have been a bit pricey but not too bad and they took off 15% from the ticketed price. Great place, will go back when I am in FL.

Love this place, excellent selection of unique beer! The bartenders are very knowledgable about all the different kinds of beer. The food is also very good! Its nice to have a place that serves a good Impereial Stout and also serves food!
