Descended from the famed Hofbrau Haus in Munich, Germany, the Bierhaus is intended as a miniature version. Climb the steep stairs to the second floor to find a vast, sky-lit room crowded with long tables (pain in the ass #1: finding a seat) and a noise level so high (pain in the ass #2) that you'll need earplugs. The beer--there are usually five varieties available, only on tap--tends to be excellent, while the food is mediocre, but relatively inexpensive by Midtown standards. Go for the wursts, of which a multiplicity are available, and skip Bavarian standards like sauerbraten, sauerkraut balls, and the mushy cucumber salad. For snackers, the gargantuan pretzel is a great pleasure.
