We know how to

Make your event extra special with the flavors and hospitality of Germany.

What to expect

When you plan your event with Beda’s Biergarten, we’ll work with you to create memories, not just another get-together. From start to finish, we are your partners in party development and we enjoy seeing your vision come to life as much as you do. Your guests will be talking about your party long after it’s over.

Willkommen! We proudly serve authentic German food from our family’s recipes. Whether we bring the party to your location in the San Luis Obispo area or you gather at our German restaurant, we consider you part of the family.

What Our Clients Say

Food

Many customers enjoy our authentic German food, from sausages and pretzels to stews, salads, vegetables, and unique meat dishes. We can also make any food to suit your tastes. Whether you envision a casual BBQ or a formal buffet-style dinner — from appetizers to desserts, brunch to coffee breaks — we’ll design a special menu just for you. We can also provide delicious gluten-free and vegetarian options.

BIER & Wine

Our beer and wine catering license allows us to bring a full beer bar set-up with up to nine beers to your house or other location. We’re also proud to provide the proper glassware that heightens the enjoyment of each bier. We carry several German biers, including König, Weihenstephan, and Weltenburger, as well as some great local Central Coast wines and hard cider.

Whether you envision an intimate party with a few friends, a corporate event, a large celebration for hundreds, or anything in between, we’re your partner in creating an event to remember.

Service

One word describes our service: gemütlichkeit — the feeling of warmth, friendliness, and welcome that is the foundation of German hospitality. 
We begin by listening to your vision, then work with you to create an event that matches your personal style, budget, and tastes.
We offer full-service set up and staffing to cater your event — from a small group to hundreds of guests. We can deliver food to your party, or host your private event at Beda’s Biergarten. 
For every event, our team brings a gracious style and attention to the details, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your special event. 

We opened Beda’s Biergarten in 2015 with this dream: to share the camaraderie and welcoming spirit from our neighborhood pubs in Düsseldorf with our neighbors and friends in San Luis Obispo.

About Beda's Biergarten

We (Helga and Beda Schmidthues) are originally from the Lower Rhine and Ruhr Valley region of Germany, very near the Netherlands. In 1990, we started catering for friends’ weddings and dinners, from casual to formal events. Our options ranged from American to international cuisine, like the American/Korean wedding we catered, complete with Korean BBQ and kimchi.  
In 2011, we started to return to our German roots and began cooking our family recipes for friends. Everyone loved the food, and that sparked the idea to open Beda’s Biergarten in 2015.

 Since then, we’ve been catering weddings, company parties, and other external events, plus in-house parties at our restaurant. We also do many Oktoberfest-style public fairs and German-themed private events. 
Today, our family run business includes our daughter Julia, and our amazing Beda Team. 

Need some fun party ideas?​

  • Have you ever thought of hosting your very own Oktoberfest—for family, friends, or coworkers?
  • How about a German-theme wedding? You bring the bride, groom, and guests. We’ll bring the rest.
  • When it’s time for your company party, take a vote from the staff: pretzels, brats, and Pilsner, or another hotel ballroom sit-down dinner?
  • You know about wine-pairing dinners. How about a bier-pairing dinner?
  • Just throw a party. Because life is meant to be celebrated. Prost!
