Karl's Deli had a beer garden before beer gardens were trendy...

Did beer gardens exist before hipsters recently discovered them? You're darn Teuton! For more than thirty years -- since before its hometown was officially known as Centennial -- Karl's Deli has been serving German specialties, including beer, on its front patio overlooking a suburban strip mall.

Christoph Zierhut purchased the place last fall, and he's made a few changes.

For starters, he's now offering free refills of Paulaner on Saturday and Friday, when Karl's stays open until 8 p.m. and also has live music.

And he's added some Austrian specials, including Hungarian goulash (also on Friday), and a wurst platter that changes daily.

Free beer is always good, especially when you're enjoying it out in Colorado's beautiful weather -- but how was the food at Karl's? Find out tomorrow, when Laura Shunk's review is posted here.

..."its front patio overlooking a suburban strip mall." That's quite a beer garden!  How could we have missed it?!?! Ah, nothin' says "beer garden" like the smell of blistering asphalt!


Darn Teuton!? That's either a really bad joke, a terribly misspelled word, or a poor spell check and no proofread. Not sure what it was. I'll have a Paulanar. Oops, Paulaner
