Bar Tending & Beerspectives

Brewsearch & Development -
Nik's Wunderbar - Whitehouse Station
Well, all. Sometimes opportunities present themselves that you just can't pass up. It's
an exciting time for me and what I love to do (and get paid for). While my heart and my
home is Northside Lounge in Manville and I appreciate the opportunity Cassandra Russell
(owner) provided me. Especially having some faith in me to go full on craft beer and
letting me run with it. I had to take what I've learned over the last 6 (plus my liquor store)
years and run with it on a much larger scale. I am now the "Brewsearch & Development"
department of Nik's Wunderbar @ 454 US 22 West in Whitehouse Station.

Nik's Wunderbar is a Bavarian style beer hall and garden with 35 brews on draft and
45 in bottle. While we pride ourselves on exploring food and beer from Bavaria we are
not solely locked into just that. With 35 taps (and my passion for beer) we also carry
American craft beer, Austrian brewed Bavarian styles, Belgian beauties, and much more
to come. Be aware that some time around Thanksgiving we will be one of the few
bars/restaurants in the area to carry a specialty lava smoked stout from Iceland.
We will keep you posted via our newsletter on the arrival of that bad boy.

My Move To Nik's Wunderbar
To all my readers and friends, please stop in and say hello to me at my new home, the great
Nik's Wunderbar,    It's an exclusive Bavarian beer hall and beer garden focusing on German dishes and
German brews. The staff wears traditional Bavarian dress too!
