Ever feel like a superhero? Well, every day, we here at Altstadt feel like the superheroes of modern German cuisine and libation. Bringing you seasonal beer cocktails at the speed of light. Conjuring the most unique authentically inspired dishes around. Flying over the boundaries of what German means to Seattlites to broaden all of our horizons. But, Zagat unmasked us in this article about a few of us culinary superheroes in Seattle. Enjoy!
With our new summer menu we welcome Herringsalat, a delightfully fresh fish dish that harkens back to truly traditional German cuisine. Our take is a modern classic with herring prepared three ways, roasted beets, beet puree, pickled strawberries, dill gherkin pickles and egg. Read more about herring in the northwest and Altstadt’s Herringsalat in The Seattle Times.
In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the German Beer Laws, Altstadt will be hosting a day of beer (not that most days aren’t!).
Join us for $5 .5L Bitburgers, .3L Weihenstephaner 1516 Kellerbier and .3L Bayreuther 1516 Lagers, beer filled food specials, raffles, music and more as we commemorate this milestone in German Beer Purity.
Zagat came to dine with us last week and learned that, while our beer, brats and brezel are amazing, there is so much more to Altstadt. We hope you enjoy the article and try one of our new spring dishes the next time you are in.
They are here!
Altstadt is proud to now be serving three beer flight options (a light, a dark and a traditional German styles flight). This will now give you the opportunity to sample a variety of our unique Fassbier (drafts) before deciding what to choose.
Flights will change as our taps change, so we look forward to pouring you a flight soon.
Join us on March 3rd and enjoy a unique Altstadt meal while supporting FareStart!
Altstadt chefs and FareStart students will be preparing a delicious meal highlighting the bounty of spring. We’ll start with smoked trout, braised black salsify and nettle buere blanc, move onto a beer braised lamb shank with pea and bacon salad and parsley root puree and finish with chocolate mousse, candied hazelnuts, hazelnut meringue and cocoa nibs.

We want to say a big Thank You to our amazing guests, staff, family and friends for allowing us to make Pioneer Square our home for the last two years. Becoming a part of this community- a community of Germans and Germophiles, locals and visitors, beergarden revelers and the best sports fans a city could have- means the world to us.
We have sold a lot of brezeln and even more Bitburger which is why, to say thank you, we are offering $2 .5L Bitburger and $2 Brezels all day on Wednesday, November 18th. We hope you will come down to prost, enjoy the fire, make new friends and celebrate with those you adore, just as we envisioned Altstadt to be those two plus years ago. Here’s to many more!
