This Saturday, Philadelphia welcomes what promises to be a super beer garden to Chestnut Street.
Brand new Brü Craft & Wurst celebrates its recent opening in grand fashion with a daylong bash tomorrow from 2 p.m. until 2 a.m.
All are welcome to the opening event, and with mild temps and sunshine in tomorrow’s weather forecast, the promise of free samples and killer specials ought to draw a crowd.
Look for $4 German lagers, $5 American craft ales, $5 whiskey, $5 wurst sandwiches, $5 currywurst and $4 Bavarian pretzels.
No stranger to the neighborhood, owner Teddy Sourias (of Finn McCools Ale House and Room 12) aims for an inclusive vibe at Brü, serving beers from Miller Lite to Nebraska Apricot Au Poivre Saison and German-influenced gourmet-leaning grub — think pork rib sauerbraten or potato-apple pancakes — from chefs Matt Buehler, formerly of Kraftwork and Bar Ferdinand, and Damon Menapace, most recently of Cochon and Osteria.
In addition to tasty fare and a big bottle list, Brü boasts indoor and outdoor seating, 38 beers on tap and — get ready for it — six self-serve taps operated through touch-screen iPads.
With such a cool feature, we predict Saturday will be a real brouhaha.
