German cuisine, bier, and live entertainment. Located in the heart of Nashville at Opry Mills Mall, Bavarian Bierhaus is a 15,000 sq ft Bavarian inspired Bierhall featuring 12 draft beers (all imported from Bavaria) and a delicious chef inspired menu of German food. Established in 2017. Bob Krumm spent six years living in various towns in southern Germany, most of that time, in Bavaria. Brian Kehl deployed there multiple times on temporary duty. Both loved Bavaria, its culture, its food, and especially, its beer. Brian already had opened a smaller German restaurant in Panama City Beach, Florida, however he knew that he wanted to tell the wider story of Bavaria. Bob was thrilled of the idea, and wanted to tell it in his hometown of Nashville. Together with seven friends who also loved their Bavarian experiences, in 2016 they began building the Bavarian Bierhaus, an authentic Bavarian experience. With over five hundred seats inside, and another 120 in the biergarten outside, the restaurant has the look of a large Munich bierhall. Beyond the décor, the entertainment, the food, and the beer, what the Bavarian Bierhaus especially wants to replicate is something called Gemütlichkeit, similar to southern hospitality.
