Last night, we had the honor of attending the first VIP night / soft opening of the Moerlein Lager House. If you are unfamiliar with restaurant soft openings, these are nights when friends and family are invited to help a restaurant try out their operations before opening to the public. The guests enjoy a complimentary meal while the restaurant gets a trial run.
There is so much we want to show you about the Lager House we can’t fit it all in one post. Watch over the next few days for more photos and information.
Lots of different seating areas throughout the Lager House. The first floor is more casual (especially in the beer garden section) and the second floor is a combination of tables and booths.
The front part of the second floor is the home to the Beer Barons Hall of Fame and can be used to private dining. The round tables here enjoy a spectacular view of Great American Ball Park.
Since we are believers in better beer, we have to tell you about the beer. There are two massive bars (one on each floor). The first floor bar specializes in the Christian Moerlein family of beers. And almost of these beers will be available in growlers specially made for the Lager House.
The second floor has all of those beers plus guest beers including local beers and craft beers. See that glass below? Yep, that’s Chimay Red on draft from the second floor bar at the Lager House.
But one of the most amazing part of the Moerlein Lager House is the view. Almost every single table and bar stool is afforded an incredible view from the large floor to ceiling windows. And when the weather gets better, outside seating will provide you views like this one:
