The Greatest Beer Gardens In The U.S.

Just like St. Patrick’s Day is a chance for everyone to drink beer and pretend they’re Irish…Oktoberfest does the same for Germany. What’s even better is the whole season lasts a month or so, leaving plenty of weekend opportunities to find a great part. Thrillist scoured the nation and found the best beer gardens the United States has to offer. Here are a few of them to get you started and make your wiener schnitzel all tingly.

  • Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden(Austin, Texas) – 100 beers on-tap and over 30 sausages made in-house.
  • Bavarian Inn(Frankenmuth, Michigan) – Every bit of it emulates German heritage.
  • Biergarten(Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) – A massive beer list and substantial German menu.
  • Biergarten(San Francisco, California) – A major player in a city filled with great outdoor drinking spots.
  • Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden(Queens, New York) – An institution since 1910.
  • Dacha(Washington, DC) – A must-stop for the DC day-drinker.
  • Frankford Hall(Philadelphia, PA) – The beer and food drown out the bitching about various sports teams.
