The new expansion to Brauhaus Schmitz is just about ready for the big reveal later this month, but chef Jeremy Nolen invited Eater over to get a sneak peek at the space. The interior features a soaring wood structure in the center of the room that replicates the look of the massive beer halls in Bavaria, capped off by a huge bar up front made from a whole spruce tree. The design of the entire space is pretty dramatic, and features old world elements like tabletops made from German kegs, a wood burning stove from the late 1800s. There is a new Stammtisch (head table) made from the wood planks that once were kegs of from Ortlieb's Brewing in Northern Liberties.
Before the space is open to the public on July 20, Brauhaus Schmitz is having a private potluck celebration for some friends and family, featuring chefs Jason Cichonski (Ela), David Katz (Meme), Scott Schroeder (SPTR and American Sardine Bar), Pete Woolsey (Bistrot La Minette), Joe Cicala (Le Virtu), Mitch Prensky (Supper), and Erin O'Shea (Percy Street BBQ). Eater is happy to announce that we've got four spots on the guest list to give away to you, our dear readers. All you have to do is email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) the answer to this question:
