The first round is on the haus.
April 7 marks National Beer Day, and German beer garden Bierhaus NYC is celebrating with a traditional keg tapping at 7 p.m., offering all patrons who attend a complimentary round of beer.
Biehaus serves up brews by Munich's Hofbräu, from seasonal taps to the classic varieties, including lagers, Hefe Weizen and more. Head there early to enjoy beer by the half liter ($8), liter ($16) and 2-liter boot ($32). Or, sample a variety of brews with a five-beer flight for $11.
In addition to traditional German fare, like pretzels and bratwurst, Bierhaus is serving up an all-day holiday special of half-off beer cheese dip and chips with the purchase of a liter.
Bierhaus NYC is at 712 Third Ave., near East 45th Street, and is open from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays. For more information, visit bierhausnyc.com.
