Soon after we posted our list of the city’s 5 best beer halls, we got word from Bowery Boogie that Paulaner Brewery, the Bavarian brew giant, is planning to open a massive flagship beer hall on the Bowery.
The place will span 4,000 square feet, making it smaller than Williamsburg’s Radegast Hall and Biergarten, but enormous by Manhattan standards. It’ll open in time for Oktoberfest, when the brauhaus competition will be on. We’ll still be rooting for the little guys.
