The lot has been empty for a decade.
“Before this fence was up, they actually had problems with homeless and tents being set up,” said Sean Derfield, who wants to build Der Biergarten.
Derfield said he wanted to borrow from an idea used in other cities, using refurbished cargo containers as instant buildings for the kitchen and restrooms.
Derfield is shipping picnic benches and beer steins from Germany for the open-air establishment. He said it will be closed on rainy days, but points out there are only about three dozen rainy days in Sacramento a year.
Derfield said he has made changes to plans, to accommodate concerns about noise in the Midtown neighborhood and to ensure the appearance.

Paragary Restaurant Group, meanwhile, said it will close Spataro Restaurant and Bar — across from the State Capitol.
