Last night was opening night at the new Old German, which is under Grizzly Peak (the old Old German). A buddy and I decided to check it out.
The Old German is a German-style beer basement. It has six taps of Grizzly Peak beer plus two special kellerbiers. The kellerbiers are a special feature of the Old German. They are served directly from the conditioning tanks. I'd highly recommend trying the helles bock, which was super tasty. The Old German (aside: can we start calling it the OG?) also has a smattering of German-ish dishes. We tried the soft pretzels, which come with a super delicious cheddar beer sauce. We also had the potato pancakes. They come with horseradish sauce and applesauce. Pretty good.
One nice feature of the Old German is that it's super chilly. It was very air-conditioned and in the basement last night. So it's a pretty nice place to beat the heat. All in all, it's just a pretty nice cozy little bar. The decor had a good feel. One thing that might disappoint fans of the old Old German (I'm looking at you @dokas), is that the bathroom doors are no longer labeled in German.
The kellerbier tanks.
If you're looking to get outta the heat this week and grab a pint, I'd recommend checking out the OG.
