    Biergarten Coming

    Hey, Northern NY, Western Mass and Southern Vermont, look what is coming to Albany. Article from Albany Times Union of 11/07/2008

    Broadway beer garden brewing
    Former site of Noche will now offer sausage, schnitzel menu

    By STEVE BARNES, Senior writer
    First published in print: Friday, November 7, 2008

    ALBANY — A traditional German beer garden is planned for the renovated Broadway firehouse that once housed the nightclub Noche.

    Albany Medical Center
    Wolff's Biergarten, with a modestly priced menu and casual dining, will open in the spring, said the owner.

    Matt Baumgartner, who owned Noche from December 2005 to spring 2007 and also owns Bombers Burrito Bar on Albany's Lark Street, said Thursday it will be a traditional beer garden with communal seating, 50 German and Belgian beers, and a sausage-and-schnitzel menu.

    Customers will order and pick up food from an open kitchen.

    Renovations are set to begin next month to turn what was once an upscale, swanky club into a casual restaurant with more wallet-friendly prices, Baumgartner said. His partners in Wolff's are James and Demetra Vann, who were partners in Noche; James Vann is also vice president of Bombers.

    Baumgartner said the building's garage door and expansive open space — where the fire truck was parked — make the location at 895 Broadway ideal for creating the sort of convivial gathering place he has found at beer gardens in New York City and Munich.

    Committee to fix final drives.

    Life is getting better - Max Motorcycle and a bier garten with 20 minutes of each other.

    The plot I have in mind is a regular meeting at the garten to

    plot putches
    solve final drive problems
    eat good Deutsches Essen

    Nearby Schenectady used to have several German restaurants but none are left. There is a good German restaurant in Ballston Spa and one in Guilderland.


    But there has never been a Bier Garten

    Matt is waiting for us to arrive and enjoy the German Fare


    Folks in the Hudson Valley Western Massachusetts and Vermont
    regions - It all begins Thursday, March 19


    The lighting over the bar is most attractive and in keeping with
    Biergarten tradition.



    Attractive? Some of us paid a "deer" price for that fancy lighting!


    A dozen taps await to ...


    ... fill these empty steins.

    Outstanding!

    Even the weather is supposed to cooperate. Here are some pictures of the inside ...


    This floor should be covered with peanut shells.


    I'll save you a seat.



    A few gents from the old country might drop by to have a liter - or two.

    I'll be sure to bring the camera. This might develop into something special.

    Figure I'll get there around 3:30 to 4:00 and stay for awhile. Want to try out the potato pancakes. Maybe something else will look good.

    I'll send a note to Josh Asher. Maybe he can sent a note out to the Thoroughbreds.
