Milwaukee's best Downtown bar, 2011: Old German Beer Hall


"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs -- including guides, the latest trends, rapid bar reviews and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

The votes are in and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best: Bars & Clubs, 2011. Find readers' results in 50 categories, including an editors' pick, in this series of articles that run daily in the Bars and Clubs section of OnMilwaukee.com.

Once again, OnMilwaukee.com readers picked the Old German Beer Hall as their favorite Downtown bar.

Restaurateur Hans Weissgerber III, of the Weissgerber Group, opened the Bavarian bar and eatery at the end of 2005.

The Old German Beer Hall seats about 100 and features the beers of the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, along with lagers, darks and weisses and seasonal offerings like Maibock, HB Sommer and Oktoberfest. The bar also serves the Weissgerber family's house amber and Miller High Life and Miller Lite in bottles.

Beers are served in liter, one-third liter or half-liter glasses. The beer hall's traditional Bavarian menu includes large Bavarian pretzels, bratwurst, knackwurst, smoked pork chops, carved corned beef sandwiches, schnitzel (as a special only) and three-brat chili.
