Beer Gardens For Hot Summer Relief

Beer Gardens For Hot Summer Relief

   In the 19th century, when the weather became hot and humid, Philadelphians would visit refresh themselves in any number of neighborhood beer gardens.  There would be beer, of course, food would be available and it would be a place for family and friends to gather  and get some relief from the heat.   

  Today, we can enjoy this tradition in several  new beer gardens that are opening up for the summer.  Spruce Street Pier has plenty of seating by the river, fountains and misters to keep you cool and even has a Boardwalk along the Delaware.  IF you find yourself further up the river, by the Ben Franklin Bridge, stop into Morgan’s Pier for cold drinks and a great river view from the multi-level  outdoor seating area.

In Center City, there are several new outdoor places to enjoy your favorite brew.  Philadelphia Horticultural Society has a “Pop Up” garden at 1438 South St, and this features a pleasant beer garden with seating and food trucks in the evening.  The garden portion, featuring local plants and ideas for local gardeners opens at 11 each day.  The Beer Garden portion opens at 5 and remains open until 10 on week nights and midnight on weekends.

  IF you find yourself thirsty around Independence Hall, stop into the Independence Beer Garden at 100 Independence Mall ( Rohm and Haas Building)  You will have a great view of history and the packs of tourists wandering about.   This should be open for business in mid July, so look for it.

  Last year’s  “Beach at Eakins Oval” proved to be very popular, so a new version is being done this year.  This year the oval will become a magic carpet and will be the same family friendly place it was last year.  This will also include a beer garden with food trucks for your summer enjoyment

  Hanging out in Northern Liberties ?, head on over to  the ever popular Frankford Hall, just above Girard at 1210 Frankford Ave, probably the best german style beer garden around!
