Brat Brot opened in the Magic City this past April and it has been a hotspot for locals ever since. Why is everyone in Birmingham going crazy over this biergarten? Here are the top three reasons why.

1. The Beer

You couldn’t have a biergarten without the beer, right? At Brat Brot, the incredible bar is the main focus, and it’s drawing in beer fans from all over Birmingham.

From flavors that range from mild to strong to unique and funky, Brat Brot features German brews as well as local ones.

Some on the menu are:

  • Bitburger Pilsner
  • Spaten Lager
  • Straight to Ale Roggenbier
  • Tucher Hefe Weiss

All of the beers listed are available in 1 litre stein. It may be an arm workout to drink it, but “exercise” is important, right?

You can also add a mit Schuss to any beer (a shot of lemon or raspberry syrup).

For those that prefer a difference drink, Brat Brot also serves wine and select liquors. Jagerbombs anyone? (Seriously, it’s on the menu!)

2. The Atmosphere

Another reason locals are loving Brat Brot is because of its awesome atmosphere.

So what’s on the menu? Here are some popular choices:

  • Bratwurst
  • Pretzels
  • Birminghamburger
  • Baked Spatzle & Cheese

If you’re anything like me, you are interested in that Birminghamburger. So here’s what it consists of: beer cheese, bacon, arugula, pickled onion and smoked mayo on a pretzel bun. Delicious!
