A spacious basement pub with more than five hundred bottled beers and fifty more on tap, Bier Baron Tavern – located under the Bier Baron Hotel – draws a mix of beer connoisseurs, college students, and after-work politicos eager to get down to some serious drinking in this hops and barley heaven.

Walls covered in vintage tin beer signs, goblets, and cans set the beer-centric tone, overshadowed only by the massive refrigerators showcasing all the options at the bar.

Those looking to pair their pints with some hearty fare need only duck through the brick archway and into the dining room, where office buddies flip through an eleven-plus-page drink menu and scruffy international backpackers enjoy a hefty pile of bratwurst with their specialty brew.

Fridays and Saturdays feature local bands playing mostly acoustic music from a small nook on the second level, while very popular monthly beer tastings bring in large groups of friends and curious couples to sample a limited edition brewski or two…or three.

Given the option to sleep it off at the upstairs hotel, rowdier college kids sometimes get carried away working through the menu, forgetting that it could easily take a year to sample every beer at Bier Baron Tavern.

Tip from Lucas:

Tell the bartender what you want to eat, and they’ll tell you what you should drink with your dish. Or just get a Bavarian Bier Baron pretzel…it goes well with pretty much everything.

Can't beer Happy Hour
Jayson M. Aug 15, 2012
Beer, burger, $10 every day from 5 to 7pm. What else do you need to know? Oh, how about eight bazillion beers you've never heard of (it's true, I counted). Their croque monsieur is also surprisingly good. Lots of people complain that the beer can be pricey, but dude, it's mostly specialty imports so what do you expect? You want bud light, go to a college bar. Or better yet, open your friggin mind. Get's ridiculously packed on weekends so I tend to avoid it then, but it's a solid midweek haunt for me and I've gone more times than I care to admit and still haven't tried remotely close to everything that's on offer. The live music tends to...well...tends to be what you'd expect live music at a bar to be. Tuck into the dark downstairs bar, try a flight, then be sure and walk (not drive) home. A must for beer-lovers.
