The spirit of gemütlichkeit, German for friendliness or good cheer, is the driving force behind the beer at Bauhaus Brew Labs. The Northeast brewers live that congenial German philosophy every weekend at their taproom on Tyler Street. With a row of free side-scrolling cabinet games and a shelf full of board games and kids’ toys, the Bauhaus crew invites bargoers to stay a while in their soaring warehouse space. In warmer weather, the taproom rolls up its garage doors for an al fresco vibe. If you’ve ever been on the premises for their annual Schwandtober Fest and seen haus band Viva Knievel take the outside stage, you know that Bauhaus is built to be the perfect party place. That’s why it’s become the hippest wedding venue in Minneapolis over the past few years.
