Gordon Biersch is an upscale brewery restaurant concept featuring internationally flavored cuisine and traditional German-style lagers brewed on-premises.

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurants have brewed the Maibock lager in celebration of the Spring season and in honor of a legendary German tradition. Maibock is a full-bodied beer first brewed in 13th century Einbeck, Central Germany. Legend has it the citizens of Einbeck shared a large public kettle in which they brewed their beer. The kettle moved from home to home as each household used it to produce a supply of Maibock. The order of the houses was determined by a lottery on May 1st, hence the name Maibock.

To compliment this festive German lager, Gordon Biersch has also rolled out a new Spring Menu featuring Ahi Tuna Carpaccio with Sesame Asparagus Vinaigrette, Maibock Braised Mussels, poached in Maibock lager with fresh herbs; Hunter Style Chicken, served with rosemary potatoes, Roasted Pork Chop served over sauerkraut-mashed potatoes with braised red cabbage and apple raisin glaze, and Lemon Thyme Sea Bass served with roasted beets and field greens topped with a lemon thyme vinaigrette. A special dessert item has been added which is perfect for the season, a Mixed Berry Cobbler, simmered in orange flavored liquor and spiced rum, accompanied by Tahitian vanilla ice cream.

The Maibock special lager and the new Spring Menu is available for a limited time, in addition to a unique German logo-style glass which is available only while supplies last.
