Beer gardens are known for fresh beer, fresh conversation and a little bit of relaxation. So it's convenient that Philly's Beer Garden Happy Hour Series provides the opportunity for all three.
Now through Aug. 29, six beer gardens are serving up a rotating happy hour each Friday. Whether you're sipping a cold one along the Delaware River waterfront, lounging in a hammock at Spruce Street Harbor Park, or tasting a slice of Munich in Fishtown at Frankford Hall, Philly has the perfect beer garden deals already planned for you.
Some of the featured beer gardens offer multiple bars, games ranging from Jenga to ping-pong, and lengthy beer menus that serve up craft and German beers.
Keep on the lookout for the brand new Independence Beer Garden (1 S. Independence Mall West), with a 20,000 square-foot outdoor area and light American fare by Chef Travis Masar. It's also right across the street from the Independence Mall, offering you a little bit of history with your beer.
The pop-up happy hours will run from 4 to 7 p.m. on Fridays, and include specials on food and local craft beer at each beer garden. The happy hour series ends Aug. 29.
