It is with great sadness that we recently announced the suspension of business of Brät Brot, Birmingham’s only biergarten and our labor of love. I’d like to thank every one of you who joined us for a stein of lager, the World Cup, an afternoon in the garden, or one of our house-made sausages. We have been proud to have added something unique and beautiful to the hospitality scene in Birmingham. While we experienced a high level of early success and received an abundance of positive feedback, the reality is that we have a large facility that requires a minimum volume to operate sustainably throughout the year.
As with any new establishment we learned a great deal in our first few months about how people would respond to our concept and want to use our space. We are now aware of things that we nailed, mistakes that we made, and some things that we would have done differently before we opened. That said, we want to hear from each and every one of you to gain an even better understanding of all of those things. We hereby extend a sincere offer to hear your personal experiences, how you perceived the concept and space while we were open, and what you might like to see if we were to reopen in the spring. Below is a link to a simple Google Form that we’ll use to gather that feedback.
We love this city and the downtown community and want to continue to be part of a progressive vision that we can all be proud of.
