As the first union in the country to serve beer, the Stiftskeller has been a convivial campus meeting place since the first keg was tapped in 1933. The historic space will be preserved and renewed to better serve the students and community members who enjoy the social and warm environment year round. Two new service windows to the Terrace will streamline beverage sales during the summer season, while service counters indoors will also restructured to better service Union customers. Most of the unique and beloved German murals on the walls of der Stiftskeller will be preserved, while some of the murals will be moved and reproduced to make room for a new elevator that will finally make the west end of the building handicap accessible.
