One detail worth to add, to explain the expectation on the beer hall owner to throw out some extremist guests even if they didn't misbehave: there is a campaign in Munich under the slogan "Munich is multi-coloured! In restaurants and hotels, too", whose participants promise to keep far-right activists out, and the beer hall in the story joined it.

This sort of campaign isn't new. There have been different local no beer for nazis campaigns for years. Important, I think, because that's the sort of social contacts racists use for recruiting.
