I first heard rumor of a beer garden opening in Fort Greene, way back in March. Obviously, I was very happy. Beer. Schnitzel. Outdoor space. What’s not to love?
And being positioned a block away from Habana Outpost means it’ll have an interesting crowd and hopefully will have a moderating effect on the drives that overwhelm the place on the weekends.
But, I was apprehensive. There was no word of when they would be opening. So, I sat tight and didn’t think about it.
That is until Brownstoner reported that they would be open by the end of last month. With hopes of tippling over brats and shnitzel for 4th of July Weekend, I stopped by to find it shuttered.
Last week, I passed by again and the gates were half open. I stuck my head in and asked about an opening date, but didn’t get anything more than “Soon come.”
So, there you go: Soon come.
