Raise a glass, the Atlantic City Boardwalk officially has its first authentic biergarten. Open since May, Biergarten is an open-air venue located between South California and Iowa avenues next to The Tropicana hotel. You’ll find an outdoor kitchen, two bars, fire pits and a game area at this restaurant and bar, which can hold more than 300 guests.
Owner Nick Dounoulis also owns the nearby Bungalow Restaurant and the Bungalow Beach Bar.
“People immediately took a great liking to this new venue,” says Dounoulis.
Of course, the spot is all about beer. It offers a mix of NJ favorites, boasting both seasonal and specialty beers. Offerings range from light summer ales to unique big-character beers, with something for everyone to enjoy.
You’ll find beers from NJ breweries like Cape May Brewing Co., Hoboken Brewing Company and Pinelands Brewing Company.
Their signature beers are the Warsteiners from Germany. The Warsteiner Dunkel is a rich, dark full-bodied amber beer, while the Warsteiner Premium is a pale golden pilsner.
If you’re more in the mood for a cocktail, try the C’Mon Man. It’s made with Bacardi rum, vanilla liqueur, muddled strawberries, pineapple juice, simple syrup, fresh-squeezed lime juice and bitters. Or try one of their mules such as the Moscow, Kentucky, London or Mexican.
The beer garden promises to be a new summer tradition, offering a relaxing place for friends to gather and enjoy great food, beers and games.
“It’s one-of-a-kind summertime enjoyment for everyone,” says Dounoulis.
Don’t forget about the food
Diners will get a wood-burning, unique flavor experience. Enjoy sandwiches like bratwurst on a soft roll. Or get a platter of kielbasa, which is an all-beef sausage that’s baked then charred.
Snack on a Bavarian pretzel, truffle tots, wood-fired wings or the BG signature sausage—a home-style pork sausage.
“These items will definitely satisfy all palates,” Dounoulis.
Guests can find Biergarten at 2701 Boardwalk in Atlantic City. It’s open daily from 11 am to 2 am. Since it’s an open-air venue, inclement weather may affect operating hours. For more information, visit biergartenac.com or call 609-207-7322.
