Today marks the opening day of both Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery and the reopening of Brittingham’s Irish Pub & Restaurant. It’s a big moment for Lafayette Hill as the two establishments that face each other across Germantown Pike have both been substantially upgraded.
Erin Wallace who owns Devil’s Den and Old Eagle Tavern has overhauled the old General Lafayette Inn.

German food ain’t exactly sexy (when’s the last time someone said to you, “I’m craving German”?), but Austrian Village on the outskirts of Northeast Philly is something better than sexy: It’s awesome. The German-social-club atmosphere (complete with oom-pah-pah band on most Saturdays) is old-school cool, but the authentic, hearty fare is the real star: succulent schnitzels; tangy sauerbraten; goulash smothered in paprika gravy; and founder Lotte Burits’s legendary German potato salad—the most addictive thing I’ve ever eaten. Then there are the prices: Entrées average $12, and a beer costs half of what you’d pay downtown. Oom-pah-pah indeed.

Barren Hill Tavern may not be open yet but head brewer Scott Morrison has been hard at work brewing beers. And tonight, Devil’s Den will be putting his first six creations on tap.

With the debut of the beers tonight at 7 p.m., you can expect Morrison’s beers to be a permanent part of Devil’s Den’s draft lines.
