Hoff brau?

An Old City bar's David Hasselhoff beer dispenser.

Hoff brau?


Oh, those wacky barkeeps.

Mike Naessens, owner of Bierstube Tsingtau in Old City, had a lifesize cardboard poster of a Baywatch-era actor-cum-singer David Hasselhoff lying around.

Now what to do with it?

How about pour beer from it. And so, after a bit of engineering using tubing and taps, he converted the cut-out into a beer dispenser.

The taps - Hofbrau Dunkel Lager and Munich Lager - spring forth from the Hoff's nipples.

To get your beer, you position your glass farther (um) south on the cut-out.

Hassle the Hoff, huh?
