Ten-Second Takeaway

It’s October, so think Oktoberfest, Germany and traditional beer gardens. Take that image and update the look and feel and what you get is a 14,000 sq ft, spacious, open air, craft beer garden spread over two levels in Whitefield.

Must Drink


You will find traditional German-style brews made with imported ingredients from Germany. Currently, there are three beers on tap with the fourth one still conditioning. The German Lager and the Dunkel {dark} lager, with the Amber {strong} lager releasing shortly. The regular lager is clean, golden, crispy, malty and light bodied making it an ideal beer for session drinking. The dark brown Dunkel is made with darker malts, giving it a slightly heavier body with roasted notes on the nose and a smooth, a sweet profile on the palate but with low bitterness. The traditional German-style Hefeweizen {an ale} is straw colored and cloudy with a nice fluffy head. On the nose, you get those signature esters — banana dominates with some citrus undertones.

Must Eat


The menu offers a good choice of Continental, Asian and Indian food. The Pulled Pork Burger here is out of this world – slow cooked pulled pork, red onions, Cheddar, tomatoes, dill pickles, and basil smothered in barbecue sauce, between a sesame bun served along with a helping of spice-dusted French fries. The portions here are substantial. Compliment this burger with the Amber lager. The Grilled Chicken Breast with a creamy Dijon mustard sauce, baby potatoes, and grilled vegetables is excellent as is the Grilled Fish with capers and a sauce made with olives. Pair both these dishes with the Hefeweizen. To complete the meal, I’d recommend the Tiramasu, which you can pair with the Dunkel {dark} Lager.

What We Loved

The al fresco seating area is fresh, relaxing and bright. The community benches in the main courtyard are designed to encourage people to mingle and socialise. You don’t have to feel alone even if you come here by yourself. We also loved the beer {of course} and the choice of food. Perfect for Sunday brunches.

What Didn’t Impress Us

The open courtyard may pose a problem with the elements – the sun and rain. They do have plans to put in a covering in place to solve this issue.

What Is The Best Time To Visit?

At BierGarten it’s always Beer O’ Clock time and any time works. However it does look cosier at night with all the lights on.


Sample your beers before ordering a pint. The samplers are complimentary and do start with the lighter beers and work your way to the stronger/darker beers. Since this is an outdoor space with greenery, do bring an insect repellent cream or spray with you.

Price: INR 1,500 for two with alcohol.
