You don’t have to sit inside Bierkraft’s bottle-lined dining room to enjoy their more than 1,000 beers; you can just take one home. That’s because the gourmet tasting space doubles as a shop, so clients can choose to drink their favorite beer in house with a meat and cheese platter, bring it to a party in a six pack, or enjoy it at home in a growler. Since the beer selection is so immense, the staff divides up their list in terms of the brewery’s country and then style of beer, which means clients can easily find the sweet cherry flavors of kriek lambics such as Boon Kriek or the super hoppy notes of Green Flash’s Imperial IPA. Bierkraft also helps clients find their favorite beer by holding weekly tastings, during which local brewers or staff members explain the intricacies of a given style of beer while giving out free samples of beer and bar snacks. The shop’s kitchen stays open for customers who desire either a full meal or a place to keep their pet carrot where it won’t freak out. The chefs can even prepare their fresh sandwiches and snacks to accommodate gluten-free or Paleolithic diets.
