Where to go for al fresco beers this summer

It’s beer garden season in Philadelphia again and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Beer gardens are the ultimate summertime hangout. Why? For so many reasons. For one, it’s hard to beat being outside drinking beer. But one of the biggest reasons we love beer gardens so much is their versatility. Think about it: The open-air hangouts are perfect for a night out with friends, a happy hour with co-workers, dinner and drinks with the family and even a daytime hang with kids. Seriously, many beer gardens become stroller-central during the daytime. And that’s awesome.

Fortunately, Philadelphia has numerous beer gardens for one and all to enjoy. There are the established favorites like Frankford Hall and Morgan’s Pier, as well as new additions and pop-ups like the Spruce Street Harbor Park, The Oval and the PHS Pop-Up Garden.

So whether you’re looking for a litre of draft beer served in an authentic German beer stein (Frankford Hall) or looking to enjoy a local beer in a waterfront hammock garden (Spruce Street Harbor Park), Philadelphia’s beer gardens have you covered.
