I learned about the word Gemütlichkeit while reading an article about German beer gardens. According to Wikipedia:

Gemütlichkeit is a German-language word used to convey the idea of a state or feeling of warmth, friendliness, and good cheer. Other qualities encompassed by the term include cosiness, peace of mind, and a sense of belonging and well-being springing from social acceptance.

This word describes how I feel when I visit Flounder Brewing.

    When I lived (briefly) in Germany we used to say that things were recht gemütlich -- right cozy.
