On December 15, 1962, Lawrence William Yanz opened a bar restaurant at the junction of Highway 55 and 61 in Hastings, MN called The Bierstube (def. Beer Parlor). The Bierstube original menu consisted of Reubens, Bratwursts, pop and 3.2 beer on tap with the famous sizzling heart steak (6 oz. sirloin) and delicious garlic toast to soon follow. Larry started with the open grill concept in 1962 and today you can check out four other still unique open grill Bierstubes in Inver Grove Heights, Oakdale, Red Wing and White Bear Lake.

In recent years, they have added delicious, authentic German dishes highlighted by the mouth watering “Taste of Deutschland” sample platter. They have also given away many vacations, including trips to Germany during their annual Oktoberfest celebrations. They also take pride in giving back to their communities, annually amongst the leaders in many various charitable contributions. With your very appreciated support, Jim, Mike, Jim and their families promise to serve the people of their communities to the very best of their abilities. They are committed to maintaining a fresh, clean, fun atmosphere along with the old tradition of great food, great friendly service, affordable prices and comfortable surroundings for all.
