Bierhaus Maisschäler (bierhauslnk.com) opened its doors seven months ago and has only been gaining popularity since. Bierhaus is the third Kinkaider location in downtown Lincoln. Each Kinkaider spot specializes in a different concept: this time, an authentic German beer hall.
Kinkaider’s newest location, Bierhaus Maisschäler, is a German-style old-world pub. This is Kinkaider’s third location. Kinkaider owns the Kinkaider Taproom on 207 N 7th and Sideshow Spirits at 1630 P St.
Bierhaus serves a small-limited menu including soft pretzels from a Bavarian Bakehouse in Texas and some German sausage that Bierhaus cases themselves off-site. You won’t find your typical domestic beers here, since they only serve authentic German beer.
“[Our best seller] The Stag, which is our German Pilsner and it’s super light,” Dibbern said. “Sometimes when we have out-of-town fans, from like Oklahoma, they come in and will ask for a Michelob Ultra, a Busch Light, Bud Light or Coors, and we always tell them we have our Stag, German Pilsner and it does the job.”
Walking into Bierhaus Maisschäler transports you to a pub in Germany. Dibbern describes the atmosphere as an old-world pub mixed with a modern American feel.
Bierhaus offers the Bierklub which is an annual fee but includes your own locker with your name engraved, a bottle of whiskey, a member-exclusive tumbler, and several other monthly perks. Each member of the Bierhaus Klub gets their name engraved in a locker. The lockers are limited and are becoming more in demand. Bierhaus has 300 lockers for the Bierklub. For those looking for a little exclusively, once you walk into Bierhaus you are met with rows of lockers for their club members. Monthly perks include special sausage cured from Bierhaus, a mini beer boot, a gift card or a 50% off coupon for a bottle of Sideshow Spirits product.
