A beer garden in NoMa is slated to start serving German brews and other drinks within days.
Wunder Garten at 150 M St. NE likely will have a “soft opening” this week, co-owner Christopher Lynch said in an email yesterday. But it wasn’t immediately clear what day that opening will happen or when the beer garden officially will welcome customers.
“We need a couple of days to make sure that everything is working well operationally,” Lynch said.
Located on a lot just west of the NoMa-Gallaudet U Station, Wunder Garten has eight German and Austrian beers, as well as local microbrews and wine, according to a menu posted at the beer garden.
The beers include the Hofbräuhaus Original, Erdinger Weissbier and Stiegl Radler. Prices range from $7 to $8.
As for food, the menu lists pretzels and chips. But the beer garden will have one or two local food trucks, too.
Last night more than two dozen picnic benches and a dozen umbrellas were set up around a white tent that covered what appeared to be a bar.
The 8,000-square-foot property also has portable restrooms with marble finishes and space intended for children to play and for REI sporting goods to hold classes on bike repair, camping and other outdoor activities, Lynch has said. REI is opening a store in nearby Uline Arena.
