With summer approaching, it’s time to discover local hotspots suited for the season. Kick back at a breezy beer garden—a guaranteed good time with sunshine and plenty of ale. Grab a few friends and head out to one of our top five Brooklyn beer gardens.
In the heart of Williamsburg, visit Radegast Hall, an authentic “Biergarten” with a Brooklyn twist serving a variety of beers from Germany, Belgium, Scotland and more. If wine is more your style, choose from fine reds, whites and rosés. Try traditional German grub from Bratwurst to Weisswurst, two of this Williamsburg beer garden’s mouthwatering sausages.

Gluten-free options are also available.
