Treats for Tall Folks: Anyone Over 6'7" Eats Free at Bierbeisl During June

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Chef Bernhard Mairinger's comforting Austrian fare is almost as much of a wow factor as his height. Mairinger, who has recently hosted dinners with the city's smallest chef Flynn McGarry, stands at a whopping 6 feet 7 inches tall (plus 2/3 of an inch if you're getting nitpicky). He's re-launched a challenge that he did last year for the month of June, offering anyone taller than him a free meal.

Most folks in L.A. that stand that tall are likely on the Clippers or the Lakers, which is fine because it's not like they have any ball to be playing in the finals or anything. Might as well head over to Beverly Hills for a free meal.

In order to redeem your prize, you have to be measured without shoes in the restaurant. If you are indeed past the mark, you'll get an entree and dessert. (Booze and beer are not included in your winnings.)

Of course, if you're not a beanpole, there are ways to get a cheap deal, like their sensational happy hour, which offers $7 sausages and 10 oz. draft beers.
