In 2010, our founder Gerry Hanratty opened the very first Bierschenke. His goal was to give Londoners access to a truly authentic Munich Beer Hall experience.
The desire for authenticity came from a respect of the rich traditions that have formed in Bavaria around the Beer Hall. The goal of any true Beer Hall is to foster a feeling of ‘Gemütlichkeit’, a sense of warmth, friendliness and good cheer. Beer Halls in Munich are usually run by a brewery, and are created as a space for people of all walks of life to come together and share good times over a stein of fresh beer and some hearty Bavarian cuisine.
To achieve an authentic Munich Beer Hall experience at Bierschenke, little expense has been spared. All of our furniture is real maple-wood, sourced from Munich, our sausages are being delivered from the best butchers in Germany, staff wear traditional leather lederhosen and dirndl and many of our staff are German nationals.
We are very proud of the food we serve, and our menu reflects time-honoured Bavarian tastes. However, the centrepiece of any Beer Hall is the beer! We work closely with the family run Müllerbräu craft brewery, from Neuötting, who have created four signature beers exclusively for Bierschenke. These beers, along with a number of German national favourites, really set Bierschenke apart in terms of authenticity and respect to the original Beer Hall concept.
Now, in 2019, we have 2 sites from which we offer guests the real Munich Beer Hall experience; Bierschenke Beer Hall at London Wall and the new Tower Hill Bierschenke Bierkeller. Come in today and see why we are the place for real Beer Hall culture in London.
Our four Signature Beers are brewed exclusively for Bierschenke by Müllerbräu in Neuötting, a family-owned craft brewery established in 1768. We expect to sell over 400,000 litres of these signature beers which include: Bierschenke Lager, Bierschenke Dunkel, Bierschenke Munich IPA and Bierschenke Wheatbeer.
