Bavarian beerhall concept Bierschenke has announced it will open its second site in London following an £800,000 investment.

Opening on 27 June just outside the City of London in Tower Hill, Bierschenke Munich Bierkeller will look to replicate the authentic beerhall and Oktoberfest experience.

The new 6,000sq ft, 400-capacity venue, will offer customers traditional German food, an oompah band every Saturday and four signature craft brews created exclusively by family-owned Bavarian craft brewer Müllerbräu of Neuötting – including Bierschenke’s Munich IPA and Banana wheatbeer.

Founded in 2010, Bierschenke’s first site was opened in a disused basement space beneath Daly’s Wine Bar opposite London’s High Court before the brand moving to its current home in 2014.

Bierschenke’s 8,500sq ft space near London’s Liverpool Street station sells more than 400,000 pints of draught beer per year.

Two further sites in the pipeline

Discussing the new Tower Hill site, Bierschenke’s owner Gerry Hanratty commented: “Bierschenke was created to bring an authentic Bavarian experience to the city of London; we have respect for their tradition and cultural importance of good food and drink; it’s the Bierschenke way.

“Since the opening of our London Wall site, we have experienced huge demand to extend our presence further and are currently in negotiations for two more sites.

“Tower Hill will offer the consistent Bierschenke experience and we hope the people of London are as excited as we are about the opening. Prost!”
