Guess what? Another "fact finding mission", this one in the East Village. Zum Schneider's a little place with a bunch of beerhallish tables and a tiny little attached room with more of the same. There are fake trees sprouting right up and (so it looks) right through the ceiling and a good deal of brick. We sat barside and woofed a bowl of big bavarian pretzels and saw it all. They've got a half dozen bottles and 12 taps, all German, from one end of the range to the other. I had the Aventinus while Phil had a Dab (I haven't seen Dab on tap since ever). Kolsch, Octos, in appropriate glassware, a good selection although there were a couple I've never heard of. Note to self: I really ought to be better schooled in German beers.
Uh oh, bathroom hunt. What's this?? Oh hell, Hey!! Am I a "Herr" or a "Frau"? Damn it, what'd they use to call each other on Hogan's Heroes? Come man, tell me, hurry up, hurry, hurry!!

Wonderful German bar and restaurant. Very atmospheric, with a tree in the center of the room, and a very outdoor-beerhall vibe even though they are indoors. The food is excellent, even if the variety is not huge. But the main thing is the beer. As long as you understand that you are sticking with strictly German beer for the visit, you will be very impressed with the variety of beers. A good percentage of the best and most unusual German beers, including the Schneider Oktoberfest, Aventinus and Kolsch, as well as both the Marzen and Urbock versions of Schlenkerla Rauchbier (very good combo with the food. The service is very friendly and charming, and the mostly German waitresses usually appreciate it when I bring my Dachshund to dine with me...they are especially freindly when they find out his name is Ludwig, and was named after Mad King Ludwig II, whose picture adorns the wall here. All in all, a great beer experience.

I went their for my 30 birthday Saturday night about 7:30 . This place is great cool atmosphere luved the fake trees nice place to have a drink. The service was very good nice German girl very attentive as soon as my glass was empty she was back to offer a refill .the food was typical German Biergarten food nothing special. The beer I had just had a few drafts all were in excellent condition I had a Weihenstephan and it was the best one I ever had those taps must be really clean and the beer was very fresh. A side note one of my friends doesn't like German beers and complained about the selection, I think it was great not the best beer bar but a great German Restaurant. Your not going to find a whole lot of styles of beer but that's not what they are. They are great at what they do. I enjoyed this place and will go back!

Schneider uber alles! This is my favorite spot in the East Village, and maybe all of NYC. 12 German brews on tap and more in the bottle, all served with appropriate glassware. Every time I go, I have a big grin on my face, and every time I leave, I know I have overdone it (but I'm still grinning!). A good place for a beer nut, but you don't have to be one to have a great time. Other places might have a wider beer selection, a sexier vibe, a cooler locale, or better cuisine (although theirs is nothing to scoff at) - something about Zum just makes me glad.
