Party Earth Biergarten Haus Review

The Scene

With its fat mugs of frothy brew, heaping piles of bratwurst, and live polka on Fridays and Saturdays, Biergarten Haus brings the spirit of Oktoberfest to DC all year long.

With its fat mugs of frothy brew, heaping piles of bratwurst, and live polka on Fridays and Saturdays, Biergarten Haus brings the spirit of Oktoberfest to DC all year long.

A spacious beer garden draws schnitzel and stein lovers eager to cram in on long communal tables and make new friends over liters of beer as big as their heads, while groups of international sports fans congregate near the jumbo projection screen to catch the latest rugby match.

Those looking for even more European flavor, meanwhile, get both a mouth- and earful when musicians in lederhosen setup beneath the garden’s fluttering German flags.

Revelers who prefer not to drink their Spaten Bock in the sun can join the pilsner-sipping regulars at the bar inside, where dark wood accents and mounted trophy animals create a classic hunting lodge atmosphere. Bigger groups will find more space to sprawl upstairs, another cozy room featuring a bar and clusters of tables usually buzzing with frat guys and conversation.

Just one more flight up, the rooftop patio offers dozens of bourbon barrels for chairs, as well as four TVs almost guaranteed to be offering the latest in fútbol.

Regardless of where patrons decide to hang out, there’s always a celebratory atmosphere at Biergarten Haus, even in the winter when the beer garden is covered and heated to ensure that the party lasts all year.

If you love outdoor spaces and beer...this place is the happs. Every time I have been here, it has been packed. I came here on a Saturday in the Winter time and the outdoor area was still filled with people. I had to wait in line once, but it was well worth the wait. On certain nights they have live music which really gets you in the spirit. There are plenty of TVs that are always showing games which is an added bonus for an outdoor space. The beers speak for themselves and the food here is great too. From the pretzels to the knackwurst, everything is pretty much amazing. It's really easy to get caught up here, so I always end up spending more money than I want. I will say the prices are pretty reasonable for the amount of food and beer you get. I do wish this place was easier to get to from NW DC. I think I would go to the Biergarten Haus and other bars on H street more often. Recommendations: The Schneider Aventinus Doppelbock and the Franziskaner Hefeweizen...just deliciousness in a giant mug.

Biergarten Haus is a great weekend haunt with a casual yet lively atmosphere. This place has multiple floors and an outdoor patio which is quite picturesque in the warmer months. I love hanging out at the upper level bar -- its on the smaller side and cozy, with a few cocktail tables in addition to the bar. They've got a number of beers on draft, which you can order in a pint or whopping liter. I love amber ales, and Biergarten has a wonderful Franziskaner Hefeweizen that I'd highly recommend. Also, if you're a fan of traditional German fare, Biergarten has you covered. Though I normally go there later in the evenings, I have sampled their "wurstplatten" for dinner, which gives you a delectable selection of three different types of sausages along withe saurkraut. Biergarten definitely attracts a hip yet fairly crowd, ranging from college age through 30's. This is a great place to casually hang out with friends and chat without the feeling of a college bar.
