Brewhaus German- American BrewPub invites Chattanoogans to enjoy Germanstyle recipes, unique craft beers and great company at the North Shore restaurant, where every night is the perfect night to hit the pub.

“For winter, our deck has been enclosed,” says Hunter Hart, who co-owns the restaurant with Michael Robinson. “It’s still warm there for the rest of the winter, and all the coverings are retractable in the spring, so you’ll have a beautiful view of the bridge, downtown and the aquarium.”

The BrewPub encourages guests to come on weeknights and enjoy specials and events scheduled to make each evening lively. Every Monday, Brewhaus offers guests a chance to enjoy the wide selection of beers with $3 half liters. Tuesday nights are reserved for rounds of Live Team Trivia, which begin at 7:30 p.m.

Hart says the restaurant is now the destination every Wednesday evening for a new running group called Running for Brews. The group is open to all runners and meets at the restaurant every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. before leaving to run 3-5 miles, after which they reconvene at the restaurant to eat schnitzels and drink beer.

“It’s worked great for us because it’s a good group,” Hart says. “The people in charge of it do a great job, and I love having some of the running community at Brewhaus and focusing like the rest of Chattanooga on the outdoors.”

Every Thursday is a free beer tasting event when different representatives come and present a variety of beer samples to try starting at 7:30 p.m. The featured beers for each event are also offered at a discount for the evening, which ends when the beer runs out. Feb. 7 will feature Stone Brewing Co. and Feb. 21 will bring Yazoo Brewing Co.

BREWHAUS GERMAN-AMERICAN BREWPUB

PHONE: 531-8490

HOURS: Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday from 11-2 a.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Brewhaus also specializes in creating culinary recipes that reflect German culture — with a Southern-American twist. Favorites include the Rooster Schnitzel Wiener Art, a traditional schnitzel (thinly pounded pork loins shallow-fried) topped with two fried eggs and served with two sides. Another favorite is the King Ludwig, a fried pork sandwich with sauerkraut and spiced apple butter.

The menu also offers guests a chance to enjoy healthy options like the cherry ale chicken, a grilled chicken breast topped with house-made cherry ale-mustard glaze and cherries; a pecan chicken salad sandwich served on grilled sourdough; or the veggie bratwurst.

“Everything is made from scratch in the kitchen,” Hart says. “We get our produce from P & P Produce and we get all our breads from Bluff View Bakery. We do buy locally whenever possible.”
