Great that they've done something interesting with that area - kinda makes me wish I took the train more!! Am a big fan of Paulaner - and had a hefeweizen.grabbed a hot soft pretzel a that was neither hot nor soft. Since they have hot sandwiches for sale I wish they went the extra mile and offered bratwurst or other german sausage to go a little further along with the theme.

I was shocked when I walked into North Station and saw the rather lame bar had been converted to Paulaner Bier Garten. With 12 taps of Paulaner available (eight varieties in all, including Munich Gold, Pils, Salvator, and three variety of Weissbiers), the selection is great - provided you are a fan of German brews.

A decent variety of bottles are also available, including old standbys like Bud, Harpoon, and Sam Adams, plus a few interesting ciders and local brews.

The Bier Garten is sectioned off by an attractive wrought iron fence, and the bar is clean and well-kept. Though not everyone's cuppa tea, there is a certain charm to this little oasis among the hustle and bustle of the crowded station.

I had a Salvator for $6/pint on draft, and a sip of the dark wheat just to try. The tap lines seem well maintained. The beer is not chilled too cold to taste either.

The bartender was a bit overwhelmed trying doing maintenance and setup, but she was friendly and very willing to give out tastes, though not super knowledgeable or enthusiastic about the product. Overall, good service.

I did not try the food, and was not impressed by the offerings. The pretzles looked fine - a good accompaniment to a German lager, but just your typical pre-made hot pretzels hanging in a machine.

If you are killing time waiting for a train, definitely stop by and grab a beer. Or, if you're traveling by train to the North Shore to visit some of the better bars north of Boston, coming a little early for a Salvator wouldn't be amiss.

Strongly recommended. A welcome addition to North Station.
