  • Tyber Bierhaus
    The sounds of clinking steins and lively conversations fill Tyber Bierhaus, which embraces the spirit of a Belgian-, German-, and Czech-inspired beer hall. This revelry-inducing eatery is the third restaurant for co-owners Mark Moore, Paul Uppole, and Dan McLaughlin, who also opened the similarly inspired St. Arnold's Mussel Bar. At Tyber Bierhaus, the bar features more than 20 beers that includes everything from relatively light Czech pilsners to rich Belgian tripels. The food menu is equally diverse—homemade goulash, pork schnitzel sandwiches, and the restaurant's signature mussels in an aromatic, beer-based broth with caramelized shallots, garlic, thyme, and duck fat all emerge from the kitchen. At the same time, chefs occasionally find inspiration in Mediterranean cuisine as they prepare dishes such as linguine shrimp scampi and olive and red pepper hummus with pita bread. As further proof of the restaurant's commitment to creating a European-style beer hall in Bethesda, Tyber Bierhaus features communal picnic tables throughout its dining room. This communal setup encourages guests to chat with their neighbors or even lift their liter-sized glasses together for celebratory toasts. The relatively simple ambiance features mustard-yellow walls adorned with vintage advertisements for European beers and other details, such as the tin cans filled with sheaves of wheat that decorate a small ledge. By remaining open until as late as 2 a.m., Tyber Bierhaus provides guests with a place where they can settle in for the night and enjoy the lively, communal atmosphere even after their cars have turned back into pumpkins.
