You will love this bonkers Manchester bar that serves up beer in steins bigger than your head


Each and every weekend The Bierkeller bring you the most bonkers Bavarian bash this side of Munich. With a focus on quality beers, barnstorming entertainment and authentic food, The Bierkeller Manchester is a traditional beer hall done right.

On arrival, you’ll be greeted by the host and introduced to your server. Reserved bench seating creates a social environment for everyone to interact. The evening starts with soft tasty pretzels, Bavarian bratwurst and steins of beer bigger than your head.

Waiter service means you won’t miss a minute of the evening queuing at the bar. Serving staff in traditional German dress deliver the food and drink to long bench seating, warming you up before the evening’s festivities.

The bratwurst is imported from Germany, gluten-free, but most important of all, delicious.

You’ll be spoiled for choice when it’s time for a drink. There are more than 20 beers to choose from, including the famous Haus Beer and Erdinger Bierkeller is known for.

If you’re feeling adventurous why not try the brand new Hofmeister, brewed to Reinheitsgebot beer purity law for a crisp traditional taste, or be more adventurous with a Berliner Kindl Weisse.

At 9 pm, the announcement is made that the resident band is about to take the stage. The Amazing Bavarian Stompers kick off the fanfare with a bang, before taking you through the evening with a music and comedy show like no other.

You’ll be raising your steins and dancing on the benches in no time. The enthralling show captivates even the shyest of people, transforming them into seasoned beer house party goers in no time. The tremendous vitality and enthusiasm of this act is so infectious that an atmosphere of insobriety is immediately created with maximum audience participation.

The night proceeds with copious quantities of beer and rip-roaring fun. When the show finishes at 11 pm, the resident DJ and burgermeister keeps the good vibes going and the party rolling right up until the wee hours of the morning. The party just never seems to  stop at The Bierkeller Complex.

You can see why it’s one of Manchester’s prime party locations. Whether it’s a birthday, office party or hen do, the place exudes fun and the atmosphere is truly infectious.

If you need a break from the festivities there are three other rooms in the complex to explore, each with its own unique identity and range of products. More than 150 beers are available across the whole complex so you’re never short on options.

Bierkeller offers customers a chance to unwind, celebrate and get a little wild in a place where pretence is left at the door and having a laugh is compulsory. So bring your dancing shoes and your enthusiasm, and let The Bierkeller do the rest.
