Dog Haus Biergarten in Pasadena
93 E Green St
Pasadena, CA 91105
This is such a cool place. When you hear biergarten, it automatically makes you think GERMAN. German sausages, German beers, and bench seats where you can socialize with your mates. Well, it's kinda like that but a whole lot more here.
Dog Haus is unique because they put a different twist to your traditional german wurst or sausage. They also have interesting burgers on Hawaiian style bun! I think the tater tots does it for me. With their cool selection of interesting sauces, it's definitely the place to taste something new and exciting.
When it comes to beer, the German stuff is always on tap. But if you are a craft beer drinker like myself, they also got you covered. Last time we came here, they had a speakeasy XPA in the bottle for $4. It's not cheap, but its definitely not expensive at a place like this. On tap, they got your lagunitas IPA and one of my favorite Rasputin American imperial stout! If beer isn't your thing, dont worry. They got a full bar to make you something else.
The inside is like a sports bar. It was great to watch the Laker game here once. But the the bench tables outside is where it's at. Just like how they do it at the Oktoberfest places, get some food, grab beer and drink with your buddies on the good ol bench seats. It's not pretentious, and just enough to not seem super ghetto. It is after all, old town Pasadena AMIRITE?
