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.
