Casual
Tanzenwald is an exciting combination of craft brewery, taproom and kitchen in a beautifully restored building in historic downtown Northfield. The menu features classic pub fare with a twist as well as daily specials. The beer ranges from hoppy to sour to classic German lagers. A cozy yet open indoor space with exposed blonde brick and antique Douglas Fir rafters well as a small back patio (and another one in progress!) Tanzenwald is both a place of lively celebration and intimate gathering space with live music on the weekends.

Great craft beer, delicious food, comfortable atmosphere, and great service. Great place for a quick beer, or to spend the whole day.

I had the black bean street tacos and could barely finish them - soooo salty. Like, way beyond just normally salty. Hubby thought his cheeseburger burger was OK but also on the salty side. He was disappointed his IPA wasn’t very bitter despite the high IBU. Fries were good!

As always, the service and food were fantastic! Our table ordered the pretzel bites, just the wurst, the chicken club, the polish kielbasa, and of course beer. We have been to Tanzenwald multiple times and have never been disappointed.

NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. Brought my wife and her family along for a 30th birthday celebration. We were very confused as to why you would have a kids menu but no high chairs, kids cups, and changing restrictions on where our kids could move. We sat outside to help with restrictions and movement of kids. At first kids (ages 3, 1.5, and 1) were allowed to move around as long as a masked adult was supervising. Then restrictions changed to only being able to move within a certain area. Finally we were told that if our kids so much as got up from the table, we would be asked to leave. This was frustrating, embarrassing, and disheartening. We will never bring our business back to Tanzenwald. The food and beer that we were able to enjoy in our short time there were delicious and our server was incredible.

This was a bit of a drive for us, but we are checking out new (to us) breweries once per week this summer and thought a drive would be fun. Google maps does not take the most efficient route, but we got there. The brewery has a nice selection of beers, I like a lighter, less hoppy beer and my husband likes the hops, we both found two beers we liked. I can't remember the name of any of them, but I would guess all the beers are good because I think there were only 10 beers and we had 4 of them. The food was also quite good, nice selection on the menu, something for everyone. The brewery itself had a nice cozy ambiance, probably a lot of fun without covid to deal with. Staff was friendly, helpful and prompt. I would go back when in the area.

Great place, really appreciated the server with tiny gold bee earrings. Another server checked in a bit too frequently, but they understandably were just looking to make sure we felt looked after. Will visit again if I'm in Northfield.
