Beda’s and Helga’s favorite place to go to in Germany, was Käte’s, a neighborhood pub where they met with friends or made new ones as they shared tables in the busy establishment. Having lived in San Luis Obispo since 1987, Beda and Helga wanted to create a neighborhood restaurant/beer garden with the same feeling of Gemütlichkeit , where people can come alone, with friends or meet new ones. Although Beda’s Biergarten is a family owned and run pub, it would not have opened without the generous support of a group of friends that believed in the concept and in the family. The creativity, physical and financial support of this group makes Beda’s a true community supported neighborhood pub. All of us at Beda’s are looking forward to meeting and serving you!
