Housed in a 19th-century brewery, Bube’s Brewery offers a variety of dining experiences, ranging from casual to fine dining. Bube’s is formerly the site where German immigrant Alois Bube made and served his Bavarian-style beer in the mid-1800s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the brewery is steeped in history and has even been featured on Syfy’s Ghost Hunters.
The brewery houses several restaurants, each offering a unique experience and highlighting a different aspect of Alois Bube’s operation. The Bottling Works is perfect for casual dining and is located in the original bottling plant of Bube’s Brewery. Outside, Bube’s Biergarten is an oasis with large trees, landscaped areas and an oversized chessboard. The Biergarten and Bottling Works share a menu. For an upscale dining experience, descend 43 feet into the stone-lined vaults of The Catacombs, which features a menu that includes a variety of traditional and gourmet dishes. Wooden tables, pewter-like plates and mugs and candlelight add to the romantic aura of being cut off from the world. Alois, which is located in the original bar and dining rooms of the Victorian-hotel portion of Bube’s Brewery, is used for private parties and events. The brewery offers frequent ghost tours, murder mystery dinners and theatrical feasts, as well.
