Standing beneath the German flags fluttering outside with the two-story timber structure of Biergarten Haus looming overhead, one might feel transported to the streets of a small Bavarian village. Inside, the head of an elk looks down at glasses full of more than 25 German lagers and weizens, and warm, doughy pretzels provide an “excellent drinking snack” to pair with schnitzel, sausages, and potato pancakes. Climb the stairs to the rooftop beer garden—lauded as one of DC’s best by the Washington Post—where tables made of repurposed barrels cluster together like the triplets seen on the covers of Beethoven’s lesser-known Krautrock albums. Out back, a second beer garden populated by long, rustic tables is open year-round, and groups can clink glasses to celebrate birthdays or holidays.
