A Look Inside Brauhaus Schmitz, The New German Beer Hall On South Street

Brauhaus Schmitz is about three weeks old.

It that time, it's been doing gangbusters business.

A few vitals:

- 20 beers on tap, all of which are available to order in massive litre mugs
- House-made bratwurst
- Cured meats and sausages sourced from Rieker's in the Northeast
- $3 small bites menu, including a pickled red beat egg
- You can get a meter of the house-made bratwurst grilled in a coil.

Among other things, the käsewurst (knackwurst stuffed with Emmentaler cheese) is recommended.

As is the Schinkenplatte, which is the meat and cheese plate appetizer.
