One of the greatest German restaurants is The Berghoff on Adams in Chicago. Before your order comes to the table, the waiter brings a massive stack of fresh rye bread, and the entrees are all pretty affordable.

Their house brand of beer is brewed by someone else, and I can't remember who.

I just perused this thread, but I was in Munich for the last day of Oktoberfest, literally for 6 hours during a layover. I went to the Augustiner tent. Probably the best beer I drank in my life. I've been looking for it in local beer stores and had only been able to find it once.

It used to be brewed by Huber in Wisconsin. Now Huber was sold to a Canadian company and Burghoff became it's own company. It will still be brewed in the Huber brewery though.

Edit: Trumer Pils is one of my personal favorite German beers. Just to stay on topic.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's closed.

Now, can someone tell me what a Schaum party is?

LouT was this a typo? If you were talking about IA. Des Moines has the the Hessen Haus.

I'm going there for my birthday. Any recommendations on what to try on tap?

I was in the Quad City area -- or maybe that trip was when I was in the Waterloo area -- we never made it to the German place, but it sounded so much like what was described that I took a guess at midwest location. I'm sure someone on this board is familiar with the Hessen Haus you mentioned. Regardless, I recommend Franziskaner Heffe-weisse -- my favorite.
