South Florida foodies and beer aficionados gathered at Bad Ragaz Hall and Biergarten, Boynton Beach’s hottest new drinking and dining establishment, for the official launch party from 7 – 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 27. Nearly 200 guests attended the event to help raise $760 to support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which helps meet the immediate emergency needs caused by a disaster such as shelter, food, health and emotional health services.

Guests mixed and mingled, sipped cocktails and imported beers while indulging in Bad Ragaz Hall’s Thursday night dining special: unlimited steamed mussels for just $15 per person. The $5 donation at the door granted each guest a complimentary glass of champagne or half liter of one of Bad Ragaz Halls’ many international draft beers. Located at Las Ventanas on the corner of Woolbright Avenue and Federal Highway in Boynton Beach, Bad Ragaz Hall offers an authentic European beer hall experience with out all the travel expenses.

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the more than half a million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through over 700 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some four million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. And the Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected.

Named after a Swiss village and inspired by founder Alessandro Silvestri’s Italian roots and European travels, Bad Ragaz Hall & Biergarten brings a modernized, old world allure to South Florida’s dining scene. Offering 24 draft beers and 50 imported bottles from all over Europe, guests can enjoy International beers poured from custom ceramic beer towers and signature cocktails at its center bar, communal tables or choose to sit at the restaurant’s unique “Table Tap” semi-circle booths and pour their own beer; billed by the ounce. An innovative menu, created by Bad Ragaz Hall founder, the Executive Chef at Tramonti in Delray Beach, serves traditional fare from Viennese Schnitzel and Croque Monsieur Baguettes to Hungarian Wurst and Italian Spedini.
