Halloween!

October 31st 2015 – Halloween arrived at the Bierkeller! Some of the costumes on display were pretty gruesome! We had a superb audience in and a hellish great time was had by all!

Beside the Seaside!

The opening weekend!

August 5th 2015 – a chance for the band to get in and soundcheck ahead of the press launch of Cardiff Bierkeller. Safe to say there’s still a lot of work to be done before we open tomorrow but the place is impressive! Three separate bars, Around the World, Shooters Sports Bar and of course,…

A brief history

Most of the current band have been donning shorts and braces for around 20 years. The original band – Phil and Die Heidelberger was formed in around 1980 by ex Welsh Guardsman Phil Hopkins.
