Food & Drinks

If you’ve never been to the Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten, you may be wondering what to order. We recommend starting off with a cold beverage. Guests can choose from over 60 delicious beers ranging from hard-to-find imports to local craft brews. You can also opt for a glass of wine or handcrafted cocktail. Prost! (That’s German for cheers!)

When it’s time to eat, pair your drink with classic Biergarten fare like bratwurst, pretzels, schnitzel, and more. Or, have a formal dining experience downstairs where you can order the Scottish salmon or Hungarian beef goulash. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are also available; check out the restaurant’s menu for details.
