“Bar Varia couldn’t call itself a real bier halle without a mighty stock of brews. The bar boasts some 40+ bottles from Germany, Scotland, and around the world, as well as an ever-changing collection of drafts by the stein. If you’re not a beer drinker, the bar also serves a generous selection of wines and cocktails. The kitchen at Bar Varia serves up hearty winter-warmers, with currywurst, and Bar Varia’s Legendary Sausage Supper, among the native highlights.”
