Moerlein Lager House

One of my old college friends was in town and we decided to check out the new Moerlein Lager House.

We walked in to the Lager house at about 7:30pm on a Thursday night and the hostess said it was going to be more than a two hour wait! Say what?! Well, that definitely was not going to work for me.  I immediately started brainstorming plan B options but we got lucky and found two open seats at the upstairs bar – wahoo!


Since it was my first time at Moerlein, I decided to start with the beer sampler.

Original Golden Helles, Heffeweizen, Liberties IPA, OTR Ale

We started with the soft pretzels that came with a beer cheese and a spicy mustard dip.

The pretzels were hot and freshly baked – yum!


The beer cheese was pretty good but the spicy mustard didn’t do it for me because it was more tangy than spicy.

I really liked the Golden Helles (it’s not an IPA which is crazy for me!) so after I finished the sampler I had a pint with my dinner.







For my main course I decided on the Fish Taco’s with Tilapia because I didn’t want anything too heavy.  Opps, sorry guys!  I ate half of them before I remember to take a picture!

 The fish taco’s were good but nothing special.  I’ve had better fish taco’s.


Overall, I really enjoyed the beer, soft pretzels, and atmosphere of the Moerlein Lager House.  I’ll definitely go back again and enjoy some more of their beers and see what other food options they have on the menu.


What are some of your favorite menu items to order at brewery’s?
