German Beers, Hot Pretzels and Singalongs Are on the Menu at Berliner Pub

Germans call beer “flussiges brot”— liquid bread. For them it’s a simple necessity, a pleasure that ranks with air, water, and good friends. That’s the attitude at the Berliner Pub in Renton. The monumental beer list would pass muster in Munich itself. From bocks and doppelbocks to lagers, Hefeweizens, and Pils, everything is authentically German: strong and surprising, born of centuries of tradition.

Naturally, there are hot soft pretzels with stone ground mustard and plenty of cheese, schnitzel, wurst, and potato salad on the menu. There are a few burgers, but not much American pub fare. With dark wood, friendly service, and a crowd that’s known to break into song, Berliner Pub is almost like a ticket across the Atlantic. Happy Hour is 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., every day.
