Berghoff Beer Hall will be coming to the new Artegon Marketplace (formerly Festival Bay) this spring. The new restaurant will feature a 20,000 square foot German beer hall as well as a 5,000 square foot outdoor beer garden. The original Berghoff Restaurant is located in Chicago and has been around since 1898. Berghoff Brewing has been around for 127 years and has gone through a number of changes in the past several years.
According to a recent article in the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, craft beer gurus John Hannafan and Randy Mosher are involved with Berghoff and are spearheading its efforts to expand. Mosher has written a number of books about beer. His Tasting Beer is practically a required read for beer enthusiasts studying for their cicerone certification. Hannafan is the director of education at the Siebel Institute of Technology and World Brewing Academy and plays an instrumental role in crafting the recipes for the beers.
There are a couple of really nice signs outside the place but it doesn't appear that the buildout has begun yet on the new restaurant and beer hall. We will keep you posted as soon as we find out more.
