Episode 188: With the Opening of Northwest Arkansas’ Bauhaus Biergarten, We Can Now Celebrate Oktoberfest Properly

About the Show:

In this podcast episode, we sit down with Chef Jennifer Hill Booker, Co-Owner of the Bauhaus Biergarten in Downtown Springdale.  Chef Jennifer shared her origin story from birth in Ann Arbor to living in NYC and ending up in Tulsa, OK, with her parents. From an early age, Chef Jennifer was encouraged to cook and experiment in the kitchen.  She grew up watching Julia Child and finding comfort and a home in the kitchen creating good food. 

Several years later, while her husband was stationed in Germany, Chef Jennifer attended Le Cordone Bleu, where she honed her culinary skills. If her name sounds familiar, that is because Chef Jennifer was initially invited to Northwest Arkansas by the Roots Festival team to showcase her culinary skills. 

We also ran into Chef Jennifer at the Cureate program in Northwest Arkansas. Cureate works with Food Entrepreneurs looking to expand their brand and learn and fine-tune the business side of things. 

You can learn more about Cureate on episode 150 of the podcast when we sat down with Cureate founder Kim Bryden. 

The Bauhaus Biergarten is the only authentic Beer Garden in Northwest Arkansas. The Biergarten will feature some of the best beers from Germany and an assortment of Schnitzels, Wurst, Pretzels, Sauerkraut, and fresh whole-grain mustard.  They even have a Stein club for those who want their own Beer Stein to use when they visit Bauhaus Biergarten.  

The address for Bauhaus Biergarten is 326 Holcomb St, Springdale, AR 72764
