If Rhein Haus is a frat party and Altstadt is a dorm lounge book club, Queen Anne Beer Hall falls somewhere in the middle. It’s one big dark room with long communal tables and a chill high school gymnasium feel, but you can still drink several liters of hefeweizen while listening to a DJ set and shrieking over Jenga pieces tumbling over. The biergarten-inspired small plates are hit or miss - the pretzels and fried cheese curds are fine, but the white cheddar spaetzle with steak, mushrooms, and brussels sprout pesto is insanely delicious, as is the kale salad. And, after a few beers, so is anything from the cash-only sausage grill by the bar.
