This is basically a secret place, because, it is in a small town in western Wisconsin. Which makes it kind of cool. Laid back atmosphere. When Islay and I went (on our way to Madison for the GTMW), it was pretty dead, although Iíve heard it picks up with college students in town (UW - Stout). This is an authentic German brewpub, with German owners, and of course, German beer. While there, besides ordering the sampler, I also was able to sample some of the blonde doppelbock (Gambrinator), which was very good. For eats, I had the cod sandwhich. Nice place, Iíll be back, at least to fill a growler when Iím in the area.
Iíve been here a couple of times as Iím no stranger to I94 between the Twin Cities and Wisconsin. A pleasant find in the small town of Menomonie. Located a few miles offers the highway. The beers are served at "proper" warmer temps and have refreshingly authentic German character. Ditto the food on the latter aspect. Definitely worth your while, especially of youíre into German beer and food.

Visited here on Nov. 18, 2011. Not much atmosphere but the folks were friendly. Only 4 taps on this night. Didnít eat. Beers were decent. Had a flight of 4 beers for $4.
Stopped in right before the upcoming remodel (theyíre adding pool tables and other stuff) and arrived on the last ever $1 pint night. Wood is everywhere in here along with some German dťcor on the walls. Grabbed a tasty sandwich with perhaps the best mustard Iíve ever had in my life along with a sampler. They had five house beers on tap and they were all pretty much middle of the road. One lone bartender handled the moderate sized crowd and we didnít have to wait long for anything.
My partner and I found this place by chance and it has become our favorite place to drink beer and eat good Bavarian style food!
The quality of beer is exceptional! " this is the best beer in the world!" ....speaking of that, Das Bierhaus has won many awards with their own on site brewing.
Check it out next time your in Menomonie
Our third stop of the day on our way out through western Wisc. A quaint little brewpub with a small seating area and a nice long bar. The bartender was ok as far as service goes but the brewer takes the cake. The guy was probably one of the friendliest and inviting brewers Iíve ever met. He gave us a personal tour of his operation and explained everything to us in fine detail. The beer was absolutely excellent. It was so true to the style. Itís so refreshing to finally taste German beer the way itís supposed to taste. As a guy who has worked at a handful of breweries both here in the states and overseas, you can tell he knows his shit, and he loves to brew more then anything. If I ever go through Menomonie again I will definately stop here .
Located in a small college town with not many options, so das bierhaus is a beacon of light of anyone who isnít a drunk college student. They definitely put time and thought in crafting beer and for them it is a process to create a good beer. The Germans in the back cooking are always interesting. Go have a schnitzle and beer and enjoy.
Das Bierhaus is located in the small town where I grew up, so Iíve been there quite a few times. All the beers Iíve had here have been good to excellent, with an emphasis on authentic German styles. The brewmaster himself is Deutsch, my German speaking friends sat and had a conversation with him the last time we were in town. Food is good, with the typical German restaurant type of fare, including lots of meat and potato type of dishes. A few light beer slurping college students stumble in from time to time, but for the most part the good beer scares them away. Even on a Saturday night, itís a nice place to enjoy a relatively quiet dinner and a few glasses of great beer. If youíre driving past Menomonie on I-94, I would definitely recommend stopping here for beer. Itís only about 5 minutes south of 94, so check it out if youíre in the area!

Das Bierhaus = Authentic bavarian brew pub. On my first visit to Das Bierhuas I was immediatly bombarded with the sounds of polka music and the heavy odor of sausage and sourkraut. The food and drinks menu may be a little small but what the lack in quantity is definatly made up in quality. Wonderful beer and company. Everybody should visit Das Bierhaus at least once.

A fun place. The beer special was a great price, $6 for 1L of Oktoberfest. Service was very friendly and liked discussing their products. German brewmaster really knows what he is doing. The food is very simple, and they said they donít have the kitchen to do a lot and they want to focus on the beer, but a few more items would be good. I didnít see any dessert menu, strudel would be good. Great atmosphere, covered in Bavarian breweriania. Mixed crowd with adults as well as college students. I only saw one import for beer, but maybe there were more. Several macros because that is what some of their customers want.
