Bierkeller is the dream of its owner Rob Hagen. Rob was born in Australia to Austrian parents, and grew up with a natural passion for eating and cooking traditional food from his homeland. Childhood holidays and experience gathered over many years in the kitchen of an Austrian Ski Lodge influenced Rob’s passion for traditional Austrian Cuisine, and inspired him to pursue a career in hospitality.
After his education in Switzerland, he gained experience in renowned 5 star hotels and pub businesses before embarking on a life long dream to establish his own Austrian inspired restaurant in the heart of Melbourne.
Bierkeller offers a hand picked selection of local and imported craft beer, along with a rustic menu comprised of hearty Austrian and German food. We use traditional Austrian techniques and methods and combine them with top quality Australian produce to bring you the best from both words.
Our hope is that our menu will remind Austrian people of home, and give others a taste of Austrian Food in their own backyard.
