I ran 7 miles around Central Park on Saturday with the sun scorching down on me for the first 4 miles - the weather was humid and in the 90's...I had this excruciating headache after the run - but managed to drag myself all the way to a German beer garden in Brooklyn. And I am glad I did.
Radegast Hall & Biergarten is a fun, hipsterish German beer garden located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The atmosphere was fun, young, hipsterish and jovial - unfortunately, I wasn't in the mood for beer. But I had a good at their bratwurst and it was all that I could ask for after running 7 miles on a very hot and humid day. There are lots of little gems like this in Brooklyn - I shall pay visit to Williamsburg more often...enjoy.
All seven of us sat in the front corner of the beer garden - the place looks smallish in this photo but it was huge - there were a number of different halls packed to the brim.
...full of drunk and happy people...
I headed straight to their grill area. You can order entrees at your table or you can go straight to the grill and order bratwurst (different menus). They do accept credit cards at the grill.
Plenty of condiments to choose from - I went for horseradish and German mustard.
I ended up ordering a beef & pork kielbasa with french fries. It was damn delicious.
Another shot of the sausage from a slightly different angle.
Radegast Hall & Biergarten was definitely a fun place to hang out. I wish to go there again, hopefully without the headache this time.
