For those new to the Stubbies’ scene, they may have never had an opportunity to experience a Monday night at Stubbies. During the dark ages, before Stubbies served food one could partake in a chill Monday evening at Stubbies. Back in the mid-naughts, before the failed monetary policy of the Helicopter Ben (Ben Bernanke), the US Federal Reserve and US Treasury had pushed the Dollar to all-time lows against the Euro thus pushing the prices of high-quality German beers to an all-time high, you could enjoy a relaxing Monday night in Stubbies with some quality beers. Luckily, Monday nights are back at Stubbies. I braved the third day of 90F+ heat (in early April!?) to be part of the first Monday night at Stubbies in quite some time. It was just like coming back home. Everything I loved about Monday nights at Stubbies in the past was right there waiting for me again. So what makes Monday night so enjoyable?
First, you get a chance to chat with all the wonderful servers as well as the regulars who frequent Stubbies. You get a chance to ask them about what beers they really enjoy, what new beers they recommend, and even what may be available later in the week. Second, you get a chance to chat with those same people about anything else you want, since no one will have to shout over a crowd or be hurried from table to table. Third and most importantly, you get a chance to sit back and unhurriedly enjoy a delicious beer among others who really value the experience of great beer. You might be wondering just how I enjoyed myself this muggy Monday evening. I had three tasty draft beers — a Jever Pils, a Konig-Ludwig Weiss and an Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence. I savored each one and carefully recorded it on my ninth list, which I have affectionately named the “Monday List” in honor of the Monday night renaissance. Not being one to waste time I also enjoyed a tasty Bratwurst. The Pomme Frites were fantastic. They were crisp and crunchy on the outside with a soft, moist center on the inside. Myhrvold would have been pleased. I know I was. If you’ve never had the pleasure of Monday night at Stubbies, grab a friend or come solo next week to enjoy a less crowded and more chill experience. -John
