The Full Pour
So, you've come all this way for some bona fide German culture and have consequently been over-indulging in every beer garden/hall you can uncover. Mission accomplished, but what else is going on in this bier city beyond the old-world traditions? Surely there are some enterprising young enthusiasts making significant contributions to how Munich is reacting to the global craft beer scene? If you're curious for deeper understanding on this subject and perhaps long for some additional diversity in your Munich tap list, you should probably hop a tram to Tap-House. As the name may imply, the atmosphere at Tap-House is modeled after an American craft beer bar. Partnering up with Camba Brauerei of Bavaria, this purely craft concept bills themselves as a gateway to the beer world. But even if you had not read that ahead of time, it is immediately evident as you scope through the 40+ different options flowing from those glorious spigots.
Why is this on THL?
Tap-House is indeed comprised of American design, but it features an extensive array of options from the US, UK, Denmark, Belgium, Italy and beyond. And while most beer fiends will appreciate the international array, it's also a great venue for sampling fresh options of other not-so-well-known German brewers. Not only do you have new craft options from the likes of Camba, Crew Republic, et al, but you can also find some gems from smaller brewers around Deutschland. It's almost as if you are sitting at the crossroads where old-world Deutsch collides with modern. So, while the global influences are quite nice, it's also pretty cool to be able to grab a fresh Rauchbier from Bamburg on tap as well. This confluence of cultures is truly where Tap-House can particularly shine and you'll most likely feel a rather unexpected Gemütlichkeit (German coziness) through a modern collision of cultures. Yes friend, you want this.
