Popular Heights-area German beer house brews up sunny new location
As summer fun and sun season fast approaches, the Sitter family is set to help people soak up some rays in Galveston County. They’re the team behind the popular Heights destination King’s Bierhaus — and on April 23, they’ll expand operations into League City at 828 W. FM 646.
The new spot will offer 11,000 square feet for enjoying German beers, brats, and Bavarian pig roasts. The League City location is part of KB Restaurant Group, which franchises the King's BierHaus concept. This is the first expansion of the King’s BierHaus brand from Hans and Philipp Sitter — the lively father-son duo originally from Austria who turned a Pearland car wash into the nationally acclaimed King’s Biergarten in 2011.
“We’ve created this sense of community with all of our concepts, and we’re excited to bring that to our fans in League City,” Philipp Sitter tells CultureMap. “We’re known for our over-the-top events like our Bavarian Pig Roasts, themed trivia, and live music. We are happy to be the place where folks can come out and enjoy a bier at one of our community tables or escape to our expansive biergarten.”
The League City spot will offer gourmet sausages, authentic specialties, and world-renowned brews such as Weinstephaner Vitus, which is produced by the world’s oldest brewery and has been rated the No. 1 best beer in the world.
King’s also pours two of the most highly rated monastery breweries in Germany; one is the world’s oldest monastery brewery. The full lineup includes 25 German taps and a dozen craft beers. King’s BierHaus League City will also feature an extensive whiskey list, such as the house-made King’s Whiskey, seasonal specialty cocktails, high-quality German and Austrian wines, and will expand the region’s largest authentic Schnapps collection.
The new location offers a handful of different unique dining experiences, including a full-service inside bar fully equipped with outlets and high-speed internet for the working professionals, small tables and booths inside, indoor and outdoor beer hall-style tables, dozens of high-definition televisions, and an additional 5,000 square foot expansive patio.
“League City has been waiting for us for quite some time — we’re ready to show them good times and great food,” Philipp said in a press release announcing the opening. “Nothing excites me more than what we’re about to do.”
King’s BierHaus; League City at 828 W. FM 646; opens at 5 pm on Tuesday, April 23 and will be open for dinner service only during the first week. Regular hours begin on Monday, April 29, opening daily at 11 am.
