The Gerbeaud Pub was on my list and all mapped out. We searched and searched and couldn't find it. Turns out it was at my back when I started looking. It takes up a city block so it was easy to miss. We wandered around inside. There are several large dining rooms, and a typical brewpub in the basement. Since it was a warm day, the inside was closed. They have no air conditioning so everyone must sit outside in their very large patio. We were ignored by the staff for a long time 'til I stuck out a foot the waiter had to step over. Since I had already had their light lager at another venue, I asked for a dunkle. Since tourists always get the light lager, he wouldn't bring it. (Kathy saw him arguing with the barmaid) Finally I asked another server and eventually got my dunkel (Kathy saw the barmaid say I told you so to the first guy.) Paying was just as difficult.
Gerbeaud is a restaurant, confectionary, and pub... but they no longer brew beer there.
