If you’re in the mood for German cuisine, you don’t have to fly the 4,605 miles from Chattanooga to Germany to satisfy your hankering. With everything from schnitzel to bratwurst, Brewhaus, Chattanooga’s only gastropub, combines traditional German dishes with a local Southern twist.
Located on Frazier Avenue on the Northshore, Brewhaus is an “environment with a strong emphasis on chef-driven food, paired with good ale and wine, in a casual setting.” Seating is available both inside and on the porch overlooking Coolidge Park and the Walnut Street Bridge. Even if there’s a full house, the staff at Brewhaus invites you to grab a drink at the bar, which, weather permitting, can be taken out to the front patio while you wait.
If your taste buds aren’t familiar with German cuisine, entrées like the Brewhaha and the rooster schnitzel wiener art are popular choices among customers. A grilled, beer-marinated brat and a smoked sausage atop a bed of kraut that is served with German potato salad, a veggie medley, and ale mustard, the Brewhaha is one dish you don’t want to pass up. For fans of the recent fried-egg trend, the rooster schnitzel wiener art is the classic schnitzel—but with a fried egg on top.
Meat lovers aren’t the only ones who can enjoy the food at Brewhaus. For vegetarians, one option is the veggie spaetzle. In this dish, spaetzle, or German-style egg noodles, are tossed in a creamy mushroom pepper sauce with fresh steamed broccoli, carrots, and squash. The dish also includes the option of adding a veggie brat.
And food isn’t the only thing Brewhaus is known for. As the name suggests, Brewhaus has a variety of both draft and bottled beer. With a menu that regularly changes, Brewhaus always offers Chattanoogans the chance to try the latest brews, and will feature new beers to try from Black Abby Brewing Company this May.
In addition to their regular beer tastings every Thursday at 7 p.m., Brewhaus is participating in American Craft Beer Week, which runs from May 12-18.
No matter if you’re looking to explore a taste of Germany without leaving Chattanooga, or wanting to catch up with friends and drink a nice, cold beer, Brewhaus is the place to go. The environment is a one of a kind experience filled with laughter, glasses clinking in celebration, and of course—delicious food.
