Beyond Breakfast: Bierberg Bakery | Columbus, OH

[Update December 2013: Bierberg Bakery will NOT be open this year.]

One of the best things about the Christmas season is the cookies, right? If you’re like me, you’ve got specific memories of Christmas cookies and cookie decorating from your childhood and your adult years. On one of our last free mornings before Christmas, my boys and I were out running errands and decided to stop by tiny Bierberg Bakery in German Village. It didn’t take much convincing to get them in there. Our 16-month-old just learned the word “cookie,” after all, so it was time to put that to use.

Bierberg is only open two months of the year, in November and December, and they sell a large variety of German cookies that are sold by the pound. When you take their sign down out front, the bakery appears to be just another small house on a side street in German Village.

The retail part of the bakery is a single, very small room, with tins of cookies lining the shelves. Seriously, visiting Bierberg is like hanging out in a large closet with two older German ladies.

We ordered an assorted pound of cookies, trusting to them to pic out good ones.

They weigh it, box it, and wrap up it for you.

It’s a simple delight to eye tin after tin of Christmas cookies: everything from vanilla to chocolate dipped to gingerbread…

…some soft and chewy, some crispy and crunchy.

I honestly couldn’t tell you the name of all the cookies we tried.

But these gingerbread wafers were some of my favorite.

We even said hello to the folks in the back, still making cookies. Bierberg isn’t open too much longer for the season, so I suggest calling them to find out when they’re open and making a visit!
