A few weeks ago, I went to Hofbräu Bierhaus in Midtown East. This German beer hall is the perfect place to go with a large group of friends—the space boasts several long wooden tables—for authentic German beer. Those adventurous patrons can even opt for their bubbly brew in a stein—a large beer mug. Hofbräu Bierhaus also has an extensive menu of German delicacies. I suggest the soft pretzels with spicy mustard. For more information, click here.
