Bier stube- LeClaire

Strap on your lederhosen! It's time to visit the Bier Stube, a German restaurant. Oh vhat fun!
Vhat does Bier Stube mean, I vonder? Bier= beer. Stube= room. This particular beer room is one of three located in the QCA. The first opened in the historic Boyler's Iron building in the Village of East Davenport. The second, which features a biergarten, is in Moline. We were uber excited to visit the new LeClaire location.

The Bier Stube is located in a new strip mall on Canal Shore Drive. It shares a building with SNAP 24 hour Fitness. After stuffing yourself with sausage you can waddle over and attempt to elliptical your guilt away.
Speaking of sausage, the restaurant gets their meat from Haun's, a German butcher in Dubuque that the Bier Stube's proprieter, Dieter Rebitzer, also owns. They have a handy little guide to all things wiener.

Not only are they wienermeisters, but they also have uber amounts of ale.

IN his quest to transform into Mayor McCheese, Richie found the perfect menu item, the Hindenburger. But a burger named after a doomed zeppelin wasn't enough. Oh no, he had to get a double order of onion rings to complete the disaster about to explode in his stomach.

An all beef airship fueled by two half pound patties, 3 slices of bacon, one fried egg, and cheese, crashed onto browned and buttered Texas toast.


"All the folks agree that this is terrible. This is one of the worst catastrophes in the world!"

After witnessing the terrible destruction of the Hindenburger, I quickly recovered and lifted the tables' spirits with my wit.

On the Eastern side of the iron curtain sat our guests, the Youngs. Here's a glimpse at how the bourgeoisie eat.. Ein Paar Frankfurters with a potato pancake, potato salad, and spatzle.

Portabella veggie melt. An ubersandwich of fungi adorned with cucumbers and sauteed onions and peppers.

As you can see, the menu is loaded with German food, but there are also some choices for democratic stomachs. Try an old west burger or an ultimate grilled cheese. Desserts are also German fare... strudel, nutella pretzels, and black forest cake.
