When the first beer halls in Munich, Germany opened up in 1589 and 1607, beer halls were only meant for the elite, offering a gathering place for the upper classes. It was not until later that beer halls became more egalitarian in nature, offering beer and a warm resting place to both paupers and kings.
Soon enough, the large wooden tables set out in a large open hall served as the basis for men and even women of all classes to sit side by side with beer in hand, all relishing in the simple pleasures of drinking high-quality beer. At Prost Brewing in Denver, you may not find kings drinking besides paupers, but you certainly may encounter an eclectic bunch of people of various ages and backgrounds from all parts of the world. Besides their differences, they all share in a love for well-brewed German beer and the culture that comes along with it.
Prost Brewing’s beer hall is authentically German with long wooden tables arranged in a large open space, surrounded by German Beer memorabilia. The taproom is placed at the front, making trips up for seconds or thirds that much easier.
Flowing beer and large tables where everyone drinks together are the perfect ingredients for building community. A few trips to Prost, and you may have a whole new set of friends that will have you thinking what a small world it truly is, at least in German Beer Drinking world. For socializing over top-quality brews, Prost is the place to be in D-town (Denver).
