Pitcher this: you, in the main beer hall with a seat at the long and traditional biergarten tables as smiley servers in authentic dress bring as many trays of beer to you as you fancy. Sound good? Well that’s not all. Mouth-watering Bavarian street food from Brat Brothers will keep you fuelled with authentic Bratwurst, Weisswurst, Veganwurst, fries and all the trimmings. You can also look forward to freshly baked pretzels with sweet mustard sauce and the not so Bavarian but delicious churros with a selection of sweet sauces including peanut and chocolate and much more besides.
