It’s officially called the Ausser Rand und Band — “over the top,” auf English — and boy is it ever. The Hofbräuhaus’ signature bloody mary is made with Hofbräu Dunkel (and yes, that would be beer), Tito’s handmade vodka and bloody mary mix and a Tajin rim, topped with a jalapeno-cheddar sausage, a slider, bacon, an olive, a radish, lemon, lime and celery, plus one of the Hofbräuhaus’ giant soft pretzels, $25.
If you’re looking for something a little less elaborate you can opt for the Brezen-Wahnsinn, which translates to “pretzel insanity” and which is the same thing with just the pretzel, radish and celery, $19.
Or, for the most simple version but the one that promises the most linguistic fun, go with the Flüssigkeitsrücksgewinnung, or “liquid recovery,” without any of the garnishes, $15. The Hofbräuhaus is at 4510 Paradise Road.
