Where we've featured it
There are a number of German beer bars and gardens in New York City, and great as they are in theory, most of them tend to attract a steady combination of guys in tight black t-shirts and Goldman Sachs summer interns (you know who you are, a certain outdoor space right under the Highline). Think of Zum Schneider as a more reasonable, but still occasionally rowdy place to drink a stein of beer.
They say at the root of addiction is a desire to recreate your first high. We’ve found this to be true with many addictive substances, like Little Debbie Mini Powdered Donuts. But it’s especially true when it comes to replicating an idyllic afternoon of drinking beers and watching games. For us, this means finding a jack*ss-free beer garden. Our gateway drug: Oktoberfest in Munich. Our frequent fix: Zum Schneider. It has a true Oktoberfest feel, with a spirited international clientele and staff. They offer a plethora of beer options and platters on platters of sauerkraut, sausages, and other German wonders. Also, the projector screen, smaller TV, and game sound can be consumed from any vantage point, including the sidewalk if you have to wait for a seat.
