Sprechen Sie Deutsh? If you don’t, you’d better get out your Rosetta Stone because you’ll want to know such phrases as:
A Bier, bittschen (“One beer, please”)
No a Mass (“Another liter, please”)
And Prost! (“Cheers!”)
Von Trapp’s, a Bavarian-inspired bier hall, on Capitol Hill opened this Sunday, Feb. 10, to clogs of crowds. Get it? Bavarian clogs? See what I did there? Oktoberfest is now year-round with this 420-seat restaurant serving up brats (of the sausage kind, not the people type) and house-made sauerkraut, pickles, mustard and pretzels. What’s more? Von Trapp’s has five indoor bocce courts, two mezzanines, three bars and a fireside “bier den.” With lots and lots of beer. Beer is central to Von Trapp’s with 100 different bottled beers to choose from, an ever-changing list of 25 beers on draft and plans for a growler program to come. Lederhosen and “The Sound of Music” puns are optional.
Von Trapp’s is open daily from 4pm – 2am, with weekend brunch and weekday lunch hours being introduced in the near future. Dinner reservations are accepted and is served from 5pm to 11pm. Happy hour is daily from 3pm – 6pm, and a late night menu is offered from 11pm – 1am. Bocce ball courts can also be reserved and will be available for hourly rentals, and there are plans for bocce leagues in the future.
