WELCOME TO THE BEER GARDEN
It’s not “A Bier Garten”, It’s “The Beer Garden!!”
The Beer Garden is a local bar in the Westerleigh section of Staten Island, NY. It was opened in 2002 and originally owned and operated by a Staten Island native, Jerry Poyntz
His version of a beer garden came from his Aunt Lil. When Jerry was in his early teens, he would call looking for his cousin, Sean. He was told he wasn’t home and that he was probably at the beer garden. Jerry was a mere fifteen years old, and didn’t have even the slightest idea what a beer garden could have meant. When his Aunt’s laughter ceased, she then explained that it was the local bar down the street.
Although his aunt’s version of a beer garden was different from that of an authentic bier garten, her version was the one engrained in him, and therefore what he would name his bar should his dream of ownership become a reality. As fate would have it, Jerry’s dream came true and The Beer Garden opened its doors in 2002. Although you will not find any open-air areas to drink in, you will certainly find a very comfortable environment to dine, drink and watch your favorite sports team.
In June of 2012, ownership was changed to a long time bartender, close friend, and prodigy of Jerry’s, Andrew. Andrew shared the same passion as Jerry, to own a sports bar and provide the perfect experience for any sports fan. Keeping with that theme, we’ve enhanced it by adding six high definition flat screen TV’s, bringing the total to ten, and a 100″ high definition projector to watch any of your favorite sporting events. Our DirecTV sports packages ensure that you can watch any of your favorite Baseball, Football, Basketball and Hockey teams perform. Whether your loyalty lies with a local team or a team two thousand miles away, you can be sure to catch it at The Beer Garden.
We offer daily happy hour specials, food and beverage specials during specific sporting events and feature live entertainment on weekends. Our events and specials can be found on our calendar page!
You can choose from the 18 different beers on tap – mostly craft, one of over 25 bottled beers, or a variety of mixed drinks from the bar including some of our signature specialty drinks. The diverse food menu will appeal to anyone, and features appetizers, fresh salads and homemade soups, over 15 types of burgers, specialty pizzas, pastas, open faced platters, a wide variety of sandwiches and wraps….and even a kids menu! You can dine in, pick it up or have it delivered.
