Just like its counterpart in Germany, the Hofbrau Beer Garden in Florida is frequented by tourists from within the country and from all over the world. The cozy restaurant interior permits great conversations while the food and the beer overflows throughout the night. Comfortable long benches line the spacious interior while a small stage is strategically located in a corner of the bar to provide musicians with the perfect setup to entertain guests, travelers and patrons. Traditional Bavarian music? Rock, acoustic and contemporary German songs? Hofbrau has got you covered whatever your taste in music entertainment is.
If you prefer drinking outdoors, which a lot of people do, you can take advantage of the casual vibe outside of Hofbrau. During the day, the weather is just perfect for an enjoyable lunch with the family. At night, the lovely fountain at the center of the patio lends a beautiful ambiance. With several wooden tables and benches outside of the restaurant always brimming with conversations and good company, it is truly a haven for all sorts of beer drinkers and travelers. It’s a place where strangers can become fast friends and share their love for sausages and beers.
The wide selection of German beers is a delight for many beer lovers. Hofbrau has their famous Beer Flight on the menu which is a must-try for amateurs and connoisseurs alike. Six popular German brews in one Beer Flight order are enough to make you a beer geek, at least for one night. Check out Dunkel, Hefe Weizen, Maibock and other seasonal beers freshly-brewed in the restaurant.
Delicious and authentic German sausages are served by gracious waiters in their traditional garb. The experience will transport you to a lovely town in Germany where people just relish a unique culture. The first time you visit the restaurant should be the perfect time to sample their sausage platter. Of course, you shouldn’t forget to order a special schnitzel for your family to enjoy. You can also feed your cravings for a flavorful Giant pretzel with ingredients all the way from Munich. Indulge your sweet tooth with a delicious apple strudel with ice cream for dessert. A pretzel pudding is the way to go if you prefer to down your dessert with the beer of your choice.
The owners of the Hofbrau Beer Garden were inspired by the Bavarian social life when they created this unique place near the coast of Florida. Indeed, gulping authentic German beer and savoring scrumptious food while enjoying with old and new friends is definitely how the Germans do it. Prost to an all-year-round Oktoberfest in Panama City Beach, Florida!
