Speaking of cool new ventures, we’ve been monitoring the progress of Der Biergarten, the coming-soon pub featuring German beer and, most interestingly, a structure built using repurposed shipping containers for the kitchen and restrooms. The actual drinking and eating will be in the open air.
I’ve seen these containers used in cutting-edge residential housing, but this is certainly something new to midtown. In person, the idea looks impressive. I encourage you to stop by 2332 K St. (next to the Golden Bear) to watch the build-out.
Kudos to owner Sean Derfield, who also owns River City Saloon in Old Sacramento, for trying something out of the box.
