On this week’s Neighborhood Spotlight, Drew Carpenter of the Keri Shull Team sat down with Scott Parker, one of the main names in Arlington’s restaurant scene.
Parker is an owner in many restaurants and small businesses around the various Arlington neighborhoods, including Don Tito’s, one of our favorite spots in Clarendon, and the fitness startup Bash Boxing. Today, we got the chance to speak with him about one of his most recent ventures, Bronson Bierhall.
Beer Halls are quickly gaining popularity in the United States, and for good reason — between hearty german food and delicious beer, there are few better ways to enjoy the company of friends. One thing that sets the best halls apart, however, is the authenticity. And Bronson Bierhall has authenticity in spades.
From the menu of traditional brats, schnitzels, pretzels and German brews to the iconic European interior design, Bronson exudes old-world charm from the moment you step inside. However, this atmosphere is not mere imitation — the team behind Bronson Bierhall researched and expertly crafted an experience that melds an authentic German pub character with a familiar American tone.
In addition to the German food and beer that bring many visitors to Bronson, you can find standard American pub fare on the menu. Popular options include the Bronson Nachos, unique burgers, and pulled chicken sliders atop delicious pretzel buns. With the beerhall’s vast menu of options, there’s something for everyone at Bronson.
Great Company, Great Experiences
With the traditional layout of bench-style seating, Bronson Bierhall is the perfect place to dine and drink with a group of friends — or make some new pals at a communal table! Many of the food options — such as the massive pretzels — can easily be shared amongst a group. This is a great way to explore Bronson’s unique menu while enjoying some time with your friends or family.
Outside of the hall itself, Bronson Bierhall still facilitates this communal spirit. Many of their most popular menu items are available through their catering service as platters that feed 25 people each. So if you are hosting an event and are looking for a unique, mouthwatering dining option, make sure to check out Bronson Bierhall’s catering options.
Their event services don’t stop at catering options, either. If you are hosting an event and want to take advantage of the beautiful, 6,000 square foot space of the beerhall itself, Bronson also has event-planning options that will ensure all of your guests are satisfied.
Happy Hour for Your Dog
On top of their everyday offers and guest-planned special events, Bronson Bierhall also hosts recurring events and happy hours. On the weekend, the beer garden becomes a concert venue hosting live music to enjoy while you sip on one of the myriad draughts. And each Monday, Bronson hosts their signature ‘Yappy Hour,’ a special happy hour where people bring their furry friends to enjoy the sights and sounds of Ballston.
In fact, Bronson Bierhall’s Happy Hour specials last for 4 hours each weekday, from 3-7 p.m. — so you don’t have to worry about missing a narrow window for the great deals on their food and drinks.
These awesome events, combined with the many entertainment options at Bronson, make the beerhall a great place to unwind after work or enjoy a relaxing day off. Patrons can spend time playing some of the patio games that dot the cavernous space, including cornhole, ping pong and shuffleboard.
An Unbeatable Location Right in the Heart of Ballston
Sitting just a few blocks from Ballston Quarter (home to other amazing eateries such as The Local Oyster and Punch Bowl Social) and the Ballston Metro Station, it’s hard to beat the amazing location of Bronson Bierhall.
The beer garden is right in the middle of one of the DMV’s most explosive neighborhoods — and Bronson shows the potential to become one of the main attractions for years to come. For anyone living in Arlington, make sure to add Bronson Bierhall to your list of amazing venues to keep an eye on!
