What's that song? Ein Prosit!

If you've ever been to Bierhaus NYC, you've probably witnessed one of our bands singing a German song as everyone cheerfully raised their steins in the air and sang along. Maybe you picked up on some of the words and tried to join in as well.. but what were you actually singing?

Ein Prosit is the number one song you are guaranteed to hear throughout your trip to Oktoberfest. Every twenty minutes or so, En Prosit is sung throughout the beer tents during Oktoberfest in München, Germany. Luckily, at Bierhaus NYC, we bring Oktoberfest to you. You can join in and sing with us as we proudly hold our steins of Hofbräu bier in the air. Brush up on the lyrics below and impress your friends with your perfect pronunciation the next time you come by for some biers and live music. (Join us for live music Tuesday-Saturday evenings)


German:                                                                 

Ein Prosit, ein Prosit                                          
Der Gemütlichkeit                                             
Ein Prosit, ein Prosit                                         
Der Gemütlichkeit                                             

Phonetically English:
Ayn Prawseet, Ayn Prawseet
Dare Gae-meet-lich-kite
Ayn Prawseet, Ayn Prawseet
Dare Gae-meet-lich-kite

English Lyrics to Ein Prosit
"A Toast"
A toast, a toast
To cheer and good times
A toast, a toast
To cheer and good times.



Although Gemütlichkeit does not directly translate into English, the best translation is “coziness”or “good cheer”.  Gemütlichkeit is really all about friendliness, belonging and peace of mind, which is exactly what we like to promote here at Bierhaus NYC! 

Sing along with the video below, Prost!
