Pig wings

Pig wings

The transformation of the Rice Market into Bay Street Biergarten was quite impressive. The space is huge, boasting an absurd amount of beers on tap and TVs everywhere. Huge booths, community high tops with built-in tap systems, and an additional bar outside make it a popular destination for sports fans and beer lovers alike. Here, you have the option of ordering from a select list of beers from a server or adding money to a card so you can help yourself to the wall of taps and pay by the ounce. The menu screams American bar food with options like wings, and tots, but we always find ourselves going with German fare, like the spaetzle with smoked cheese, and bacon. If there’s one reason you should go to Bay Street right now, it’s to order the jumbo pretzel. It’s big and doughy with a nice crisp exterior and pays homage to Bavaria. Take our advice and order a side of beer cheese for dipping. You won’t regret it. —Eric Doksa Dish (Summer 2015)
