Built in an old bank, this opulent beer hall boasts high ceilings, white columns, plenty of booths and quite a few punters. There’s all manner of beer glasses tinkling and shining on racks around the bar. Do you love yourself a wheat beer? The collection is very impressive here. Not only do they have the house-brewed wheat and barley blend called Hop Dock, but there’s also the famed Franziskaner weissbier on tap and nine in bottles including an alcohol-free version for designated drivers. To really get a feel for the range you can get a tasting flight of four 150ml pours of the Crafty Bavarian range for $12, or opt for the imported biers for $13. Maybe do both over an afternoon so you can compare and contrast. To keep you on an even keel you’ll need to prime your stomach with a giant schnitzel, pork knuckle, or a spice-rubbed tri-tip steak.
