Tag Archives: Paulaner Bräuhaus

Welcome to a new segment on this blog. On Mondays get ready for a quick list of the best restaurants, dishes, or food trends in a certain category. There are so many great things to eat and drink in the city and think of this as your resource to find the absolute best.

If you look around the city this week, it seems that every bar wants to be German. Blue and white flags are everywhere, waitresses wear traditional garb are outside taking a smoke break, and the faint sound of an oompah band can be heard on just about any street.

It’s Oktoberfest! Perfect time to celebrate and soak up German culture. But make sure you find your way to an authentic German bar or restaurant and not get stuck at an Irish bar in disguise. Here are the seven best German bars in NYC (in no particular order): (more…)

My search for the best beer in New York continues….

PAULANER, 265 Bowery (between Houston Street and Stanton Street), Lower East Side

People look at me like I’m crazy when I tell them they can go to the Paulaner brewery on the Lower East Side. Anybody who knows much about beer, history, or Germany can tell you that Paulaner Brewery is an historic Munich brewery opened by monks in the 17th century. It’s one of the gathering points every year for the famous Oktoberfest.

Tank to Glass

But more recently, the Paulaner brand has expanded across the world opening up brewpubs in places like Singapore and Moscow. Its first US location opened about three years ago in New York right on the Bowery, which is notable since this was the old Kleindeutschland (little Germany) neighborhood from the 1800’s

In the Middle of the Bar

Many people might walk by this German beer hall and mistake it for a typical sports bar. But you might notice all the brewing equipment and then discover there is wonderful, authentic German pub food available and the brewmaster Andreas Heidenreich is brewing the freshest lagers every single day right on premises.

Each Friday, I get a lesson in the NYC brewery scene in these funny and informative videos promoting Urban Oyster’s NYC Brewery Tour

I love traveling to other cities and countries and trying their local beer. So when I’m in New York, I like to drink the beer that is made in this city. It doesn’t get any fresher than that. So you rarely find me drinking German or British beer – unless I’m doing research or studying for an upcoming tour or trip.

Meredith catches me with a bottle of Paulaner (made in Germany) and tells me that I can stay local when drinking this classic Munich beer. How is that possibloe? Well, it turns out Paulaner has opened a bräuhaus (brewpub) right in the center of Lower Manhattan. That means I can get fresh, local New York beer that also happens to be traditional and completely German
