Der Braumeister Announces Spring Events and Promotions

SUBMITTED – Der Braumeister, Cleveland’s family-owned German bar and restaurant, announces a winter event and promotion schedule.
Der Brau’s Jenn Wirtz (a.k.a. “The Beer Whisperer) curates the most extensive and interesting beer list in town. The upcoming events showcase Jenn’s desire to be different, serving specially-selected beers alongside traditional German and European foods with a modern flair. Der Brau’s atmosphere is reliably fun, comfortable and authentically Cleveland.
Mar. 6 – Apr. 18 Lenten Beer Battered Fish FRYdays Beginning on Ash Wednesday, and every Friday of Lent, Der Brau will serve sustainably-caught white fish, lemon pepper broiled or beer battered, with fries and slaw. Jenn will feature a seasonal brew, Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier, the original smoked lentbeer, brewed in accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. It’s bottom-fermented with a natural red-brown color and slight cloudiness, a strong malt flavor and slight bitterness. The unfiltered yeast provides “Brotzeit,” the German word for snack, to provide nourishment during a time of religious fasting.
Jenn Wirtz, De Brau’s third-generation owner, will donate 10% of every fish dinner sold on Fridays through Lent, to a local school. As second and third generation women business owners, Wirtz hopes to encourage and inspire younger generations to take on leadership roles in the business world with confidence.
Mar. 18-30 Cleveland Restaurant Week – springtime edition As part of this city-wide promotion with Cleveland Independents, Der Brau will offer three courses for $33. The menu will include traditional and decadent dishes like Veal Oscar, locally-sourced Ohio ribeye steaks and a seasonal vegetarian dish that will bend expectations of German-inspired cuisine. Of course, the Restaurant Week special will include Der Brau’s signature house made strudel for dessert. Friday, April 26 ​
​ Maifest Flight Night Maifest in Germany means it’s time to drink Maibock beer. Der Brau will follow German tradition and feature 11 different bock beers on draft, available in full pours or flights. Weather permitting, the patio will open to enjoy malty, roasted, and sweet bocks around a fire pit for toasting springtime, the Tribe and Cleveland. Rain or shine, indoors, outdoors or a combination of both, spring will prevail, for at least one night in late April.
