The road between Manchester and Germany is one often travelled, and from the likes of Guardiola, Schweinsteiger and Gundogan back to Trautmann and Rosler, the success has been pretty much unanimous. Now, you can add Bierkeller to the list, as they’ve been bringing the best of Bavaria to the Printworks, with a menu packed with German favourites and a beer menu that is as long as your arm. Manchester city centre is already coming down in places to pick up a pint, but few bring that special something like The Bierkeller: sausages, hot dogs, burgers and desserts, all washed down with as much from the bar as you can take without joining the Deansgate tornado too early. Book a place now.
Really good night thank you very much to all the staff we had waiter service would recommend this as very efficient staff only slight problem was the pretzel very hard didn't eat any I would highly recommend for a stag don

Messed up our booking. Waited 15mins to be seated. Table service was slow. Had to find a member of staff ourselves each time we wanted something.
There have been many Germans that have tried to take over in the United Kingdom – wait, let’s not get all Basil Fawlty – but few have been as successful as The Bierkeller. They’ve brought the best of the Bavarian beerhall tradition – again, stop sniggering at the back – and set up shop in Manchester city centre, with an outlet in the Printworks that offers up the big hitters of German dining culture: beer by the bucketload, sausages and pretzels and live music in the grand tradition, oompah bands, dancing on tables and waitresses clad in the Bavarian uniform.
The seats are aligned in the long benches for which Munich is famed, and when you arrive and take your place at one of them, you just need to sit right there and let those there waitresses do what they do best. They’ll fire you over steins of beer, cold and foaming, and food that features more sausages than you can shake a stick at – bratwursts, kaserkraner, smoked hot dogs to name just a few – and platters to share with your group. This is food designed for sharing, and the location in the Printworks ensures that they are the perfect place for a works do, a birthday party or a special occasion. They’re well known for their events, so they can get crowded on occasion, and it always pays to book ahead. Don’t delay, you can feel the atmosphere of Bavaria, right here in Manchester city centre.
