Beer gardens may now feel like a permanent part of the pub-going experience, even here in all-too-drizzly Britain, but they haven't always been - indeed, they were only effectively invented during the 18th century, in what is surely best described as a 'happy accident'. Gardens were first planted on the roof tops of German breweries due to the cool temperatures that their greener environments provided for fermentation. |
Before too long, beer was actually being served in these gardens, and the unassuming story of the beer garden had begun. In today's world, though, many can find it difficult to decide whether to have a beer garden, and if so, how to design it in such a way as to provide the most pleasurable experience for patrons.
Certainly, here at Design & Contract Furniture, we work hard to 'do our bit' with an extensive range of outdoor pub furniture that is comfortable, stylish, cutting-edge and conducive to the highly social atmosphere that will always make the biggest difference to the effectiveness of a beer garden. As we don't have a standard stocked range, we will always supply the furniture that makes the most sense for your budgetary, aesthetic and quality requirements. Our tips for choosing and arranging your outdoor pub furniture include using long tables with benches and chairs, so as to create the most cheerfully sociable, communal setting. You should also consider the placement of shaded refuges - such as beneath market umbrellas - to keep users of the beer garden cool.
The right furniture isn't the only element of a successful beer garden, however. You will also want to consider how different lighting types and arrangements lend themselves to a certain character and ambience of outdoor space, as does the right choice of entertainment, in keeping with your beer garden's intended or actual clientele. Nor should the choice of beer itself exactly be overlooked.
Your overall focus should be on creating a beer garden that fosters an attractive atmosphere, with plenty of avid socialising - and your choice of outdoor pub furniture will definitely make a profound difference to that. Feel free to discuss your requirements for a beer garden with Design & Contracts’ seasoned expert designers - simply by calling us.
