The History

Hoffman Estates BierGarten represents a return to an era that disappeared from our landscape with the start of Prohibition. Inspirations came from the rich legacy of German immigrants in the Chicagoland area. The operation is modeled after beer gardens found in modern day Munich, Germany. The Hoffman Estates Beer Garden is a place for all people to come together enjoy nature, a great beer and make new friends.

Hoffman Estates BierGarten features beers imported from the Munich Hofbräuhaus. All beer is served in the appropriate 1/2 Liter or Full Liter heavy glass mug. A $5 refundable deposit is required for the use of a mug. Glassware is not for sale and remains property of the Beer Garden at all times. Visitors are always welcome to bring their own favorite beer stein. Food is limited to beer garden basics of Bratwurst, Hot Dogs and our Famous Giant Fresh Baked Pretzel. Because the beer garden is truly a public place, visitors are welcome to bring picnic baskets with their favorite fare and soft drinks.
