There’s no better time of year to eat German food, for my money, than winter. I know Oktoberfest gets all the hype, but can you beat all those warm, hearty carbs and meats on a cold February evening? I don’t think so. So the new incarnation of Bierhaus, relocated from Mountain View after a rent dispute, opened at just the right time. Fortunately, owner Mike Finley has brought what was great from the South Bay to the East, offering an oasis of oompah amid the many California-style brewpubs nearby. THE VIBE: Bierhaus is very new Europe — bright colors and industrial chic on the inside, eschewing the dated look of many older beer halls. Long, wooden bar tables fill much of the space, with a long bar in front and multiple tables along the sides. A small patio in front is perhaps the only downgrade from the Mountain View venue, which had a sizable beer garden space. Bierhaus is, of course, focused on German beers, and the selection, while not massive, is carefully tailored and offers some fantastic choices. The Kostritzer Schwarzbier ($7/500 ml) offered big, deep brown ale-like flavors in a surprisingly drinkable body, while the Weltenburger Anno 1050 ($7/500 ml) belied its pale coloring with great heft in the body. THE FOOD: It was tough to narrow things down and make just a few choices from the many good options on Bierhaus’ menu. We started simple with a warm pretzel with melted cheddar ($5) and a small plate of the chewy-delectable Käsespätzle ($7), the traditional German noodles swimming in a mix of melted Gruyere and white cheddar. I wished I had a huge plate of the caramelized onions, which were sprinkled on top, so that I could put them on … almost everything. The Flammenkuchen ($13) — nicknamed “German pizza” if you need an easy picture — was soft and warm, generously sprinkled with pork belly and those tasty onions. THE MUST-TRY DISH: We came to a German restaurant for curry?! OK, I guess we did. The house curry sauce on the Currywurst sandwich ($11) was so good. So, so good. A delicious mix of tomato and onion that just worked perfectly with the Austrian Kasekrainer (cheese) sausage, and I’m certain it would work well with any of the seven other sausage choices. Dip your fries in it. (Bonus The Dish: Somebody near us ordered the Sweet Fry Bread ($6) for dessert and we smelled it travel past us, so we got the Sweet Fry Bread, too. It’s like a flat churro. Get it.)

DETAILS: Open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; until 11 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 9 p.m. Sundays. Brunch service begins at 11 a.m. on weekends. 360 40th St., Oakland; bierha.us
