Tomorrow, Sunday 02 August 2015 is our last day of operation. The doors open at noon. There still is plenty of beer and great German food. Stop in for one last hurrah!
Dear friends of Das Bierhaus: This is your brewmaster speaking again. It would appear that this Sunday, 02 August 2015, will be the very last day of operation for the business. We would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for their support over the past eight years. Please stop in for one last glorious glass of beer. Auf Wiedersehen!
Nice article. Please allow me a couple of comments. First of all, when talking about IBU´s, you are correct when you say that the chemical bitterness is very different from the perceived bitterness. One of the primary reasons for this is not only the composition of the beer, i.e. residual sugars, viscosity, ABV, etc., but also because most people have a very unrefined palate for bitterness. This comes from centuries of evolution which tell us that things that taste bitter. , like nightshade glycoalkaloids, are to be avioded whereas sweet fruits are to be consumed. Our language reflects this: we cry bitter tears, we are at the bitter end, we must swallow the bitter pill. And if something turns out well: sweet! Parents reward their children with sweet tasting treats, not bitter tasting ones. Most people react positively and consistently to sweetness, but get a group together and have them taste something bitter and the opinions will vary greatly as to the experience and intensity of the bitterness. Secondly, the word “hoppy” must include the measure of hop oil in the beer, not just the bitterness. Most craft beer drinkers are actually referring to the amount of aromatic hop oil in the beer when they use the word “hoppy”. As a result of these two factors, you can actually brew a beer with low IBU´s, but plenty of hop oil, and it will be perceived by the drinker as hop forward. These hop oils can be quantified through the use of a gas chromatograph equipped with a flame ionization dectector. I do not, however, see craft brewers measuring or publishing these numbers. If asked, most could tell you the amout and type of hops used to impart the hop aroma, but very, very few would actually know the yield from the hops and the resulting concentration in the finished product. This is a very important, yet seemingly ignored component of doing craft beer by the numbers.
Update 03 July 2015 Happy Independence Day! We will be open tomorrow from noon until close. As the talks about the sale of the business continue, we are open all of our regular hours and we have all of our beers on tap: Light, Lager, Pilsener, Märzen, Dunkel and Schwarzbier. Some of these will be retired for the new theme (think about July 4, 1776) so come on in and get them now while they are still on tap!
News as of 23 June 2015: Das Bierhaus will be under new management soon! The theme will be changing, but the brewmaster has agreed to work with the new owners. That means that the place may look a little different in the near future, but you will still be able to get all that great beer that you have come to enjoy so much. Which of the German beer styles should we keep? Pilsener, Lager, Hefeweizen, Märzen, Dunkel, Schwarzbier, Doppelbock? Cast a vote and let us know because some are going to be replaced to fit with the new theme! And just for fun, when you tell us which beer style to keep, try to guess the new theme. Hint: it will be ethnic, but from what country?
How i am ending my brewery career – oh, Schnitzel hammer. i I think I will miss you most!
Come visit your favorite celebrity bartender this Saturday from noon until 6 p.m.!!!
Dear friends of Das Bierhaus: I wanted to take an opportunity to explain what is happening with the business. Please take a moment to read the following. When we opened in January 2007, our goal was to bring authentic German beer to the Chippewa Valley. Having been trained in Germany and after working in six breweries there, I was in the unique position of being able to brew exactly the same beers that you would find in Munich, Düsseldorf or Cologne. We began with a very. simple menu, but quickly expanded it to include such German favorites as Schnitzel, Hackbraten and a variety of sausages. Now, our customers had the true Gasthaus experience with both the food and the beer. We were quite busy and our little brewery was pushing out as much beer as it could. As time went on, business star, ted to slow down and those of you who have followed our story know that we made changes to counteract this tendency which unfortunately had little effect. We are not alone in this situation. Most of the bars and restaurants in Menomonie have changed hands at least once and in some cases multiple times since we opened such as The Buck: Silver Dollar Saloon. It is hard for me to believe that such a legendary tavern as The Buck did not make it financially. Well, Das Bierhaus is now in a similar situation. It is late in the 4th quarter and we are behind, but there is still a little bit of time left on the clock. We have until 30 June 2015 to turn things around. We are trying to organize a kickstarter campaign and will be asking for your support. But the thing that all of you can do right now is to come in and have a meal and a glass of beer. Tell your friends about us. Bring your friends with you. Make us your destination tonight, tomorrow night or this weekend. Personally, I really enjoy crafting authentic German beer for each of you and I like the Chippewa Valley very much. This is going to have to be a grassroots movement, but with your help, we can save Das Bierhaus. If you have read all this and want to give us hope, please click on “like” or better yet, write a comment and tell us how you feel. Sincerely, Your brewmaster
Dearest customers, the owners of Das Bierhaus Brewpub are sad to announce that we are officially going out of business on June 30th, 2015. We want to thank all of you for your loyal patronage and friendship over these last eight years. As of now we still have plenty of beer for your growlers and plenty more containers if you want to stock up on Braumeister’s liquid gold. His last Bierhaus brew (Schwarzbier) is about ready to go on tap. Stay tuned for information on off-sale specials and pour-out party information. Luv, Braufrau.
Or stop in and try “Oculto”. AB´s new tequila flavored beer.
Drink tequila one day, or drink BIER all day everyday!!!! Tell us you don’t agree.
What do you think it will be???
Something exciting will be happening in the brewery tomorrow.
Tomorrow, Saturday, our special is Schweineschnitzel Cordon Bleu. What is that you ask? It is a butterflied pork loin stuffed with Gouda cheese and honey ham, then breaded and fried. Served with fries, red cabbage, sauerkraut and soup or salad. Come hungry!
Dear Das Customers, I apologize for all of the drips, dribbbles, splatters, and missed nooks and crannies for which I have no patience!!!
The kilometers have been hung for parents weekend!
My favorite social location by far!!

Friendly staff and patrons.
Don’t miss das bier haus if you are in the Chippewa valley. It’s all about the beer, but grab the burger with the brat on it if you are hungry. Excellent beer and atmosphere. Excellent beer if you have a good taste in any beer worth drinking.
Wide selection of home-brews from Marzen to Dunkel and they offer other light beer.
Great burgers for a price. I heard good things about this place but the beer was just ok and the food was nothing to write home about. I see most of the positive reviews are more than a year old so maybe things have gone down hill as of late. Was expecting an authentic german dinner.
Great small town german bar and grill. Excellent beer, some that they make in house and delicious lunches.
