Sauf Haus Bartenders Are Wise About Their ‘Weizens

Mac (her real name is Catherine, but don’t tell her I told you!) picked out the perfect pint for me in two tries — and only because on the first try I asked to sample her own favorite.  Then she (at least pretended to) listen to me while I told her about my day.  Signs of a great bartender?  Yes!  You can find her at Dupont’s new Sauf Haus.

Sauf Haus Bier Hall — find it above the Shake Shack at the corner of Jefferson and Connecticut Avenues in Dupont — officially opened earlier IMG_4632this month, unleashing two floors of German pils, weizens, helles and dunkeles just in time for your very own summertime Oktoberfest.

IMG_4634We recommend you post up on the large outdoor patio while the weather stays mild to indulge in any of 16 German beers on tap and a variety of seasonal, local craft, and European beers in cans and bottles; and feast on Bavarian-style pretzels, brats, franks, and oysters.   Lederhosen optional (and totally KSM encouraged).

Prost! (And tell Mac we sent ya!)
