WILLIAMSBURG, NEW YORK –
Serious beer drinkers will want to check out Radegast Hall & Biergarten, a Williamsburg staple whose faded wooden façade and steepled roof recall the authentic beer halls of the homeland.
The cozy main pub room attracts a curious mix of sporty guys’ guys, fräuleins in vintage garb, and down-to-earth indie rockers, who gather at the winding bar to mingle and flirt or huddle around rustic candlelit tables to sip rare hefeweizen or indulge in a decadent entrée.
Patrons looking for a real beer garden experience, however, can make their way out to the hall, a massive brick aisle of communal tables leading toward a grill sizzling with sausages and brats.
A retractable roof allows for summer and winter drinking, while a perpetually festive vibe inspires stein-clanging boisterousness among the clientele of artistic professionals and fun-loving college students who flock in to sample the international selection of over forty bottled brews and thirteen beers on tap.
Great for low-key lunches by day, by night Radegast becomes a vibrant and even rowdy hangout where local hipsters and college students can throw back pitchers of Hofbräu and eat unbeatable Venison brats and pretzels till the wee hours. Prost!
Working class tattooed hipsters and punks, groups of students, young professionals, and local artists, 20s to 40s.
