Brauhaus Schmitz, the restaurant we turn to for all things German, is helping two legendary German beers make their American debut. And they’re tapping the first keg tomorrow, Friday, February 20th.

Brauhaus will be pouring Rothaus Tannenzäpfle–marking the first time that this beer has ever been available on draft in the United States. Then, on Saturday, March 14, the bierhall is tapping a keg of Füchschen Alt, which has also never been available on draft in the US. In both cases, Brauhaus is suggesting that those looking for a taste show up promptly at 7pm to make sure they get a taste before the keg is drunk dry.

Routhaus Tannenzäpfle (yeah, we don’t know how to pronounce it either), is a Bavarian Black Forest pilsner, and will be available in .5 liter pours for $7.50. The Füchschen Alt is a more traditional German ale (brewed in Dusseldorf), and has a “hoppy finish with a subtle caramel flavor and hints of toasted bread.” The price for the Füschen Alt hasn’t been set yet.
