Raise a Stein at These 5 Long Island Beer Gardens

RED ZONE beth ann clyde | APRIL 29, 2016

Spring is all about gardens, and I’m not just talking about the garden variety although those are nice. A beer garden makes for a great place to enjoy the longer days, warmer weather and a pint of your favorite brew after a productive day of work or on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Get ready to sip a la fresco at one of these five Long Island beer gardens.

Plattduetsche Park Restaurant, Franklin Square

Plattduetsche Park Restaurant is more than a beer garden, it’s an authentic taste of Germany. Step into the humongous, tree-lined space and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life with live music, celebrations known as volkfests, wooden picnic tables large enough to fit your whole office and of course craft beer. Large pretzels and other delicious menu items will satisfy your salt-and-cheese cravings in a heartbeat. 

Croxley’s Ale House and Biergarten, Smithtown

The roar of the train at Croxley’s Ale House & Biergarten adds a bit of throwback charm to this Smithtown staple. Wash down your favorite German fare like Jumbo Bavarian Pretzels and Knackwurst (you can’t go wrong with a good-old American burger, either) with your choice of nearly 80 brews. Local choices include Port Jefferson Porter and Long Ireland Raspberry Wheat. 

Black Forest Brew Haus, Farmingdale

On balmy late-spring days, let the red tent or black-and-yellow umbrellas that sit atop the tables shade you from the sun as you enjoy a pint of beer made in-house. The staff loves to recommend the Pilsner. Light in body and color with a pronounced hop bitterness courtesy of the German and Czech hops, it pairs perfectly with everything from a salmon to the Plowman’s Platter of grilled veal bratwurst, knockwurst and pork bratwurst. 

Mary Carroll’s, Babylon

Most beer gardens boast an authentic German vibe, but it’s always St. Patrick’s Day at Mary Carroll’s. When the mercury nears 70, walk through the pub, step outside and pull up a stool at a high-top, umbrella-covered table that’s in the shape of a Guinness barrel. Black gates with the iconic Guinness surround the brick patio. I take it you’ll know what to order once you’re settled. 

Zum Schneider, Montauk

If you’ve braved the traffic all the way through until The End, you deserve to sit back and raise a stein. The Montauk outpost of the New York City favorite blends Eastern European flare with traditional Bavarian music and Wurstsemmel. The laid-back East End vibe draws people to Montauk. Go

Restaurant Review: Zum Schneider

Dan's Papers – danspapers.com

Opening a Zum Schneider outpost in Montauk may be, according to Sylvester Schneider, the stupidest thing he’s ever done – who wants to bring their work with them on vacation? But considering this lament was delivered by the restaurateur whilst imbibing at the bar surrounded by friends, we don’t feel so bad for him.

Finally, Somewhere to Wear Lederhosen

The New York TimesLong Island Dining | Montauk
By Joanne Starkey

A GERMAN restaurant is not the most likely newcomer to the East End: dumplings and sauerbraten do not seem to go with beaches and bikini-clad bodies. But Montauk, that bastion of fishermen and families, is not the Hamptons, and Zum Schneider Montauk, which opened in May 2012, fits right in …

Wunderbar in Montauk

By Peter M. Gianotti

In Montauk, it's the times of wurst.

Zum Schneider, the East Village biergarten, has opened a sudsy branch in the former site of Oyster Pond Restaurant & Bar. It deserves a toast, preferably with a brew from Hofbrauhaus Traunstein.

Zum Schneider MTK arrives as a buoyant Bavarian-style beer hall, with hearty German food to match. Share a bench at one of the long tables. And try the...

East End Eats: A Beer Garden Grows in Montauk

The East Hampton Star
by Laura Donnelly

I have never lived in New York City but I can imagine that one of the coolest things about it is having access to anything you could possibly want. Anything you could possibly want to see, do, hear, and eat. Like suppose you and your hipster friends were sitting around your little apartment in Alphabet City and you all decided you were hungry. Your options are never-ending — Ethiopian, Indian, French, every possible nationality of food is available to you. You can even pop on your porkpie hats and go enjoy an authentic Bavarian beer garden at Zum Schneider, located in the East Village.

Bavarian Biergarten Brings German Flavor to Montauk

by Heather Dubin

Sylvester Schneider has brought the first indoor Bavarian biergarten and restaurant, Zum Schneider MTK, to the South Fork. Located in the former Oyster Pond space on South Elmwood Avenue in Montauk, it opens for the season this week, bringing a decidedly German flavor, a replication of Zum Schneider, his bar in the East Village.
