The only word you need to know when coming into the Hofbräuhaus is PROST!

Here at the Cleveland Hofbräuhaus, modeled after the 400 year old original in Munich, Germany, there is no lack of food, fun and of course, bier.

Steeped in Bavarian tradition, all of our German dishes are exactly what you would find in the heart of Bavaria; from fresh-baked pretzels sold by our infamous Pretzel Girls, to schnitzel pieces the biggest you’ve ever seen, many of our dishes use ingredients imported from abroad and are specially made to go from our kitchen to your plate. You can enjoy your lunch or dinner in the spirited atmosphere of our Beer Hall where you’ll quickly become friends with everyone raising their steins around you, or in our more quiet dining rooms where the focus is the fare.

Our food may be amazing but our true heritage is our freshly brewed beer following the “Reinheitsgebot” or “Bavarian Beer Purity Law” originating in 1516, and we serve them the same now as they were served over 400 years ago when the very first Hofbräuhaus beer was crafted. Discover one of the 4 all year round varieties or seasonal brews.

Don’t forget to take a piece of Bavaria home with you from our gift shop stocked with gifts, clothing, and novelties!
