Best Seat in the Haus
Written by Rachel Gyarmati
Spring is a season of color and celebration. Flowers are blooming, the sky is brighter than usual, and you can even get great weather a few days in a row if you’re lucky. But, of course, there is nothing better than taking your dog on a walk and ending up at the Biergarten with friends on those good weather days.
Now more than ever, we value our time outdoors with friends and family. We may be biased, but we believe the Biergarten is a perfect meeting place because it has excellent food, is central for most, and offers the most fun. Where else can you walk up from the street and get great bier?
Read on to see what makes the Biergarten the best place in Pittsburgh to hang out this Spring and Summer. We can’t wait to see you there!
Best Seat in the Haus
Not to get all technical, but we believe our location is everything when picking a meet-up spot. Our location in the Southside Works gives you walk-up access to the very best in the area. From the Biergarten, you have views of the Pittsburgh skyline and are close to the residential areas and the neighboring colleges.
Here are a few more reasons to end up at the Biergarten this Spring and Summer.
We Are Aware of Our Surroundings
When you sit in our Biergarten, you cannot help but take in the view. We label ourselves lucky to have a clear view of the Monongahela River. One of our best tips for activity after a bier is to take a walk along the Monongahela. If a stroll isn’t in your plans, you can still take selfies of your night that highlight the river and our great Steel City. Just don’t forget to tag us so we can we what a great time you had!
Our Partnership with Stage AE
We are very excited to announce that we have partnered with Stage AE to hook our patrons up. So bring us your ticket to any 2022 concert at Stage AE, and we will give you a free pretzel with Bier cheese. Who wouldn’t love a free pretzel with Bier cheese before or after rocking out to your favorite band?
You can also take advantage of our full-service bar in the Biergarten and maybe some shareable appetizers. We suggest the Works Sampler, which has a little something for everyone if you’re with a group.
Our entire menu is also available in the Biergarten anytime.
Whether day or night in the Biergarten, we always have our complete food and drink menu available.
This month, we suggest having the Schnitzel Parmesan for lunch or dinner. We take a tasty breaded pork cutlet and cook it until crispy and golden. This is laid on a bed of our buttered Spätzle and topped with our Haus marina sauce. The dish is then finished off with provolone and parmesan cheeses.
The Schnitzel Parmesan just so happens to pair perfectly with this month’s Seasonal Bier, our Hopfen Spezial (5.8% Alcohol by Volume). This brew is a Pale Lager and is rich in hops. It also has a slighter higher alcohol content than most of our brews.
We’d also like to remind you that we have flavored Biers and a full-service bar with a great selection of seasonal cocktails and classic libations. In addition, we have menus for Kids, gluten-free and vegetarian food offerings.
Versammeln Sich im Biergarten
The term above is German for “gather in the Biergarten.” Community and hospitality are at the heart of German heritage. We are passionate about bringing these values to the community we serve and love to watch it at work in our Biergarten.
The Biergarten was a German creation birthed out of necessity. Back in the day, Biers were brewed and stored in caves to keep them cool in warmer months. Then, brewers set up tents to allow patrons to escape the sun and enjoy food and drink.
Over time, those Biergartens became gathering places for people of all backgrounds to gather and enjoy community. An afternoon or evening spent in the Biergarten is the perfect way to celebrate Spring and Summer.
Prost (cheers) to sunshine, great food, Bier, and friends.
