Now that Americans have rediscovered what beer is supposed to taste like, is it any wonder that the traditional setting is coming back, too? Beer gardens are popping up across the land, but owners know there's something they have to avoid when they open a new facility: the feeling of newness itself. The more your beer garden feels like it's a place where people have been hoisting giant mugs of ale for centuries on end, the better. And that's why we adore Brooklyn's Radegast Hall and Biergarten. Sure, the great list of German, Belgian, and Czech brews is on the money, but we especially love how the place was carved out of an old factory, creating a space that's half patio, half assembly line. You can't shake the feeling that pints have been drained here since the Great Depression. If, after polishing off the weisswurst and sauerkraut smothered with horseradish and mustard, you still aren't convinced that this place is authentic, keep your eyes peeled for the occasional mustache-growing or glass-carrying competition, which can win you round-trip tickets to the Eden of beer: Saxon lands.

The last time I came here was definitely the last time. The list of beers on tap is actually pretty pedestrian, and the crowd veers toward the weekend warrior type. We were seated in the garden annex, and it felt like we were drinking in an airplane hangar-an airplane hangar full of frat boys, that is. Not helping matters was the speaker above our table, which continually blared that old German classic, "Flight of the Bumblebee."Mary on [url=http://www.health002.com]Health002[/url]

This place is great. I came here for a birthday party with a bunch of beer snobs and it seemed like they were in paradise. The selection is pretty extensive and the brats with sauerkraut were tasty. It's pretty expensive but I'm kind of used to those types of prices when I go out with my friends for beers. Brooklyn is a bit of a hike for us so we don't come out this way often but it was worth the drive since a good time was had by everyone.Alan Smith from http://www.themedicalquestions...
