For Examiner.Com | It certainly seems like a long wait for this exciting opening of New York’s Paulaner Bräuhaus and Restaurant in the trendy Bowery neighborhood. Following the media event last night, the doors are scheduled to open on Friday, November 22, 2013. This monumental opening is important for the neighborhood, which has watched the transformation happening for months and months, but also to the Paulaner International brand, as this is the first bräuhaus in the U.S. and the flagship for the development of more Paulaner Bräuhaus establishments throughout the country. It’s been an eventful several months while trying to open with the many delays due to permits and red tape, but the talented team behind this microbrewery is now ready to showcase their world-class beers and authentic Bavarian cuisine.
While it was unfortunate that this particular location was not able to celebrate Oktoberfest this year, it will certainly be an exciting Holiday period within this thriving neighborhood. “We are excited to open Paulaner Bräuhaus NYC to celebrate the holidays with our NYC neighbors and visitors from all over the world. This will be a very social and convivial place for guests to relax and socialize with family and friends while enjoying simple quality food and fresh Paulaner beer being brewed right in front of them,” says Rudy Tauscher, Owner/Founder of Paulaner Bräuhaus & Restaurant NYC. “Paulaner’s Munich Lager, Munich Dark and Hefeweizen beers have already been brewed and are ready to serve. Our next beer to brew will be Paulaner’s seasonal holiday beer. We’re looking forward to a very festive and celebratory opening.”
Located at 265/267 Bowery, this historic building was once home of Sammy’s Bowery Follies during the cabaret days of the 1940’s and 50’s. Brew Master Andreas Heidenreich will handcraft these authentic Paulaner beers using recipes dating back to the first Paulaner brewery founded in 1634 by Bavarian monks. Paulaner recipes strictly adhere to the German Reinheitsgebot, also known as the Beer Purity Laws, established in 1516 an authentic Paulaner brew. Welcomed by the sight of copper and steel brewing tanks showcased in the center of this 9,800 square foot industrial-style space designed by New York based Morali Architects. With the vintage exposed brick walls and 14-foot ceilings paired with design elements celebrating Paulaner’s rich Bavarian heritage, this is a truly unique dining experience. For the intimate parties, private seating can be available on the lower level named to honor the heritage of the building, the Sammy’s Bowery Follies Room. In a neighborhood already in the midst of a transformation, Paulaner Bräuhaus and Restaurant will be the highlight of the Bowery for many years to come. Both Rudy Tauscher and Andreas Heidenreich look forward to welcoming you to this traditional Bavarian establishment, complete with a contemporary New York City twist. Prost!
