Altstadt is the German beer hall fit that doesn’t feel like a frat party. You can post up at a stretched-out wooden table, drink a liter of lager in a glass boot, and split a couple of brats and and spaetzle mac and cheese - you just won’t have to keep saying “what??” to your friends across the table. The beers on draught are primarily German, and though it sounds blasphemous if you’re a purist to “make it a Berliner weiss” by adding their housemade raspberry syrup, it tastes pretty great. And even better with a homemade pretzel.
