...do bin i dahoam

...there I'm at home

We've reopened, but are still doing only outdoor and limited-seating classes & events.

 

Still asking people to fill out our Covid Waiver & mask up.   Bleibt's Gesund ... Stay Well

Servus!!

"Greetings"

Dahoam1516 is not a restaurant.  We are a private social club and school operating a unique venue including a Bauerküche, private-label Brewhouse (HBH), Bier- & Hopfgarten, and many cozy outdoor social areas...Gemütlichkeit included.

We offer small-format classes in brewing and cooking with a focus on Bavarian cuisine.  We keep things simple, teach the basics, and get you hands-on so you can do this later at home yourself.

In addition to our classes, we also host social events throughout the year and our event space is available for rent. 

We also offer select classes in a "we come to you" format, specifically our Social Brewing and Schnitzelkraft Experiences.

All classes are in English  

German and Bavarian-speaking is encouraged during social hours.
