Been here many times since their initial "soft openings" and had many beers on both floors. Pretty interesting building, there's a small downstairs with a bar and a few tables, and upstairs is a bigger "Ski Chalet" themed bar with much more room.

On any night, they've got about 6-10 different German beers on tap, from Schnider and Weinstephaner to their "low-end" beer, Beck's. They have a bunch of German food as well, but I've never had it.

It's a good beer bar but their selection doesn't seem to change that much but they're still pretty new so we'll see what they do in the future.

In the summer, this is possibly the best place to have a beer in Burlington. Rooftop beer garden is all you need to know. The beer list isn't extensive, but all the taps are German. If you don't like German beer, go elsewhere. The beers can be expensive, but they offer three different sizes which can help keep costs (and alcohol consumption) under control.

Where? Well I didn’t know, but earlier that morning, I was out front of Muddy Waters nursing a double espresso and someone commented on the German flaggery, so, there. It’s on Church, a stone’s throw from some bars with $5 Headys, but they’re too young and loud. But still, $5 Headys, I could almost put up with Burlington college kid nonsense for them. Almost...

Peeked in and found nothing doing. Bar to the rear with seating for a half dozen but none tonight and tables forward unoccupied. I’m typing dead empty.
“Are you looking for the rooftop deck?” she asks.
Hmmmn, it’s got to be more fun than this. And up the stairs we go to this room with a small bar and seating, but it’s not feeling very rooftoppish. I don’t understander. Oh wait. And up another flight of stairs to the rooftop, top of the world, ma. Wood deck with metal railings all around (to keep you contained and alive) with strung tiny pastel colored Chinese ball lamps, hanging planters, and some railing affixed glass lamps. 9 tables of picnic and metal mesh, some of them under Weihenstephaner umbrellas, blue & white checkerboard flaggings, and an oddball street lamp.

Wandered back downstairs for a looksie (Not downstairs downstairs, just downstairs). A small 7 seat wood ’L’ bar with a pair of ceramic towers (one with 7 taps, the other with 2), and a half dozen + tables riddled about. A bunch of TV’s for the viewing currently of soccer. And the décor done in German beer tins and ski stuff (some mountain ski slope map, skis, and whatnot), and that’s the scene.

9 taps, 8 German offerings (Arcobrau Zwickl Lager, Hofbrau Maibock, Kostritzer Schwarzbier, Warsteiner Pils, Weltenburger Pils, Paulaner Hefe, Schneider Aventinus, Bayerischer Bahnhof Berliner fucking just kicked Weisse), and a single guest tap, which was DogFishHead Punkin, but had also kicked and it’s just as well (and I may have berated some poor college kid & part time server about the authenticity of a German beer bar pouring a pumpkin beer). I drank the Arcobrau Zwickl Lager, Hofbrau Maibock, & Schneider Aventinus.

And 100+ bottles; a mix of a whole lot of things; a baker’s dozen in the 750 cellar series (DogFishHead My Antonia, De Ranke XX, Victory Golden Monkey, North Coast La Merle, a few each from Allagash & Ommegang), 2 dozen Germs, a dozen European (read: Belgian), 4 dozen American craft (surprisingly holds only 5 offerings from VT, but one of them is a $6 Heady), and a dozen more gluten free, cider, & N/A’s. And nearly a dozen and a half wines by bottle or glass.

You know what’s in my head about now? A goddamn pretzel. I grab the kid and I says, I says, “Hey man, tell me the truth. Can I get a pretzel?”
“What kind?” he says.
“What do you mean?”
And he shows me the list. There’s a pretzel list. What? Chocolate? Cinnamon? Ham & fuckin’ cheese? Really?
“Um, traditional for me” (and I may have berated some poor college kid & part time server about there being multiple pretzel selections).
Adisa went with the ham & cheese and Dev the cheese pretzel. Sigh. I raised them better than this. They will do better with the tacos tomorrow.

It’s really a beautiful goddamn night; rooftop, with a great little breeze, and a big big near full moon shining bright. The only thing missing is Marvin, who has not completely unexpectedly blown off showing up (He will call me two days later as I’m shooting back down I-89 to tell me how he fell asleep after work). Good German beer selection; Adisa tried his first Schneider Aventinus and did dig. And foodwise, they do plenty more than the bastardization of pretzels, I would have liked to have hit the schnitzel, yo, but no. Well it’s getting late, yes it is, yes it is…
