Sometimes you just want a good old fashioned beer-swilling lock up in a deep, dark, underground bunker. My dark days as an office worker in the city centre saw me become a regular visitor to Bier Halle.
On one hand the thought of descending into the depths to a pit with no natural light sounds pretty grim. On the other, the German style of beer consumption knows no equal. Sturdy and pragmatic décor, bar food available, a cauldron of beer conversations ensuring a terrific atmosphere and plenty of choice from an extensive drinks menu makes for a good combination. In the summer months to be fair there is also the option to move upstairs and drink in Gordon Street while watching the buzz of Glasgow shoppers charge by.
What I like about Bier Halle is that it’s serious about its brand and its purpose. Not somewhere you would go to do anything but drink beer and talk lots it is very much a case of what you see is what you get. Too many bars play about too much and seem unsure of what they are all about and who they are really trying to please. Good beer, good company….it’s Bier Halle for me.
