A NEW outdoor bar has opened at Warrington Market in time for summer.

Hop Emporium’s Bier Huis promises to bring an ‘authentic taste of Europe’ to the heart of the town.

It will offer an extensive selection of Belgian and German beers, including world-renowned ales and classic lagers.

Josh Lightfoot, chief beer sommelier at the Hop Emporium said: “As Warrington’s most discerning beer mongers, we simply had to lean on the brewing heavyweights of Belgium and Germany for our latest output.

“We’re excited to unleash biers from the 6th generation headstrong Belgian Craft Brewer Cornelissen with their outstanding Fruit Witbiers, classy King Mule IPA and smooth as silk Pax Pils available to the UK on tap for the very first time.

“No world beer list however would be complete without the bier mecca that is the World’s Oldest Brewery of Weihenstephan in Bavaria and next-door, Hefewiessbier, offering their superb Helles lager on draught.

“Lastly, from what must be the most eagerly awaited collab in Brewing history, is the limited edition Braupakt 6.5 per cent Golden Ale from the Belgian brewmasters of St Bernardus and Germany’s Weihenstephaner combined”.

Whether you are a seasoned beer enthusiast or simply looking for a spot to enjoy an alfresco drink, the Bier Huis is the ‘perfect destination’.

Cllr Laura Watson, cabinet member for economy, growth and quality work, said: “I’m delighted to see another new addition to Warrington Market with the Hop Emporium’s new venture, the Bier Huis.

“This new outdoor bar really complements the outstanding offer of food and drink venues at the Cookhouse in the Market.”

The Bier Huis officially opened last Saturday.
