About the Pub

Founded in 2017 on Riverside in the grounds of the Cambridge Museum of Technology at the Old Pumping Station. In 2018, Biergarten relocated to St Giles Churchyard at the foot of Castle hill and Wintergarten to the Gonville Hotel opposite Parker's Piece. For 2019, from 19th April, Biergarten will be behind Mackays (enter from New Street). The pictures are of various locations.

Biergarten is an off-shoot of Thirsty on Mitcham's Corner and operates at weekends over the warmer months. "Craft" keg beers, real ciders, wines & spirits served in German Biergarten style surroundings. Wintergarten has giant tipis, fire-pits etc. Thirsty also run an Oktoberfest Biergarten over a late September weekend. Thirsty outlets are cash-free. Card payments only. Gourmet food vans are present at all sessions.

Biergarten 2019 didn't reach the expected level of popularity and ceased in mid-June.
