Something very special is happening in Asbury Park, again.
Over the past few days, the new Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten has been hosting nightly “soft openings” which translates to “find the holes and patch ‘em” before opening your doors to the public.
There are no TVs. Repeat: NO TVs.
Down along the bar there are beer taps as far as the eye could see. A green rooftop deck is being outfitted with wall gardens. I see myself up there in the spring, with a “rare as legal” burger and a Sledgehammer wine, staring past the Casino Pier with my North Jersey coastline train schedule that just may fly away.
Scheduled for an early February opening, the Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten is going to be a hit for all the good right reasons.
