Old Town Inn closes for renovation

Germantown's Old Town Inn, N116W15841 Main St., is looking at a facelift.

The restaurant will be closed Aug. 1 through Sept. 3 to accommodate a $75,000 renovation – which will also include a name change.

When the restaurant reopens on Friday, Sept. 4, it will be transformed into Old Town Beer Hall, a one-of-a-kind Bavarian style beer hall concept that will accommodate expanded social space, live bands, German style food and most importantly fresh Bavarian draft beer.

Current owners, Chaz Hastings of Milwaukee Harley-Davidson and the Ride Entertainment Group and Josh Neureuther, note that renovations will include new bench style communal seating, hand painted murals, signage, liter glassware, an authentic German menu and authentic beer offerings, which include not only Hofbrau bier, but also Weihenstephan bier, a brew which originates from from the oldest brewery in the world.

According to Neureuther, the Old Town Inn originally opened in 1875. In 1898, a hall was added, which was primarily used for banquets, weddings, and dances. The renovation, Hastings hopes, will assist in returning the historic building to its former glory.
