What’s next for Highland Park? A vegan beer hall apparently, operating under the name Hinterhof.

The news of the upstart operation comes from The Eastsider, who got ahold of some city paperwork to track down owner Matthias Brandt. A Glassell Park resident hailing originally from Germany, Brandt tells the publication that he hopes to soon open a 2,100 square foot indoor-outdoor beer garden that serves vegan German comfort food. The space, based on renderings provided, could end up looking like a big glass box of sorts, with string lights and the usual picnic tables outside and plenty of tall windows inside.

The space for Hinterhof sits on York, just off the core strip that includes the Hi-Hat, Town Pizza, and gastropub The York. It’s a little-used former walk-up stand that has been off the market for quite some time, and now Brandt says that if he can get full city approval the place could be up and running by the end of the year.
