Took the family downtown for some Christmas sites and stopped here for dinner.
At 5pm on a Wed. place was pretty empty.
Got a good booth watched a little soccer while listening to songs In German, pretty cool.
A nice beer listing but i thought it could and should be a bit better. Leans to wheat beers.
I did have a tall Jevers which was soft and mellow, and Schlenkerla Urbock.
My wife ordered a baked pretzel as an apptiezer and wienerschnitzell for dinner which got a big laugh from the kids.
It's a good place and would certainly go back again.
Ohh! and the barmaids are hot.

This is a must go if you like beer. Excellent selection of drafts (majority german beers) with many various styles to appease everyone's taste. Bartenders are not only attentive but they know their stuff as well. No coors or bud even served at this place. If you ask, expect a glass of water....all in good humor, but there is a lot of truth said in jest. This place is the bees knees if you love beer. Stop reading this and just go now.

Open, almost barn-like inside, wooden tables, great bar. If it's German beer you want, here's the place for it. 29 beers on tap & 90+ in bottles. mostly German with a few Belgian & German-style worked in, e.g. Left hand Oktoberfest. I had the Hofbrauhaus Traunstein Oktoberfest & the Paulaner Hell at the Oktoberfest yesterday - very good indeed. Service was attentive, quick and pleasant. Wurst is outstanding. Rollmops. Spatzle. Schnitzle all first rate & great sides available too. A great addition to the community and they throw a great party. The 5th annual Oktoberfest was a blast with over a ton of pork prepared and served.

A brief visit to Philly brought me to the steps of Brauhaus Schmitz. I was there very early (5pm) for dinner. Nice atmosphere with German travel posters and the Rheinheitsgebot posted on one wall. A classy bier Halle! They also earn special marks for being a soccer pub. Although there were no Bayern pennants, they had an Eintracht Frankfurt and Philly Union scarves.
Immediately greeted and seated. Very attentive and knowledgeable waiter( despite being a St Pauli fan). Very impressive beer list with some beers exclusive in the US only at BS. Tried the Andorfer doublebockhefeweizen. Interesting and very good. Order the tasting course and tried the following:
Sauerkraut croquettes. - very good with speck / bacon mixed with emmentaler cheese and sauerkraut deep fried into delicious nuggets
Goulash - absolutely sensational . I would come back just for this dish alone.
Jäger schnitzel - pork steak coated and pan fried, spatula and asparagus. The pork was too filling (typical German food reaction) , the spatula were good the asparagus was very good and reminded me of my Mothers recipe.
Appel Strudel- a thick delicious wedge of flaky pastry and apples.
This was served with a draft Hacklberger Humorator. An amazing delicious bock bier . Loaded with malty goodness and an earthy, fruit taste that reminded me of figs. Loved it and only on draft in the US at BS.
Very good food, excellent beers, excellent service, nice atmosphere (although early) . I recommend it and will be back the next time I am in Philly.
