Oct 29, 2012 —  For beer fans and lager lovers, a great beer garden can be heaven on earth. With traditions dating back hundreds of years, beer gardens around the world have perfected the art of serving cold steins of booze in park-like settings where patrons crowd wooden benches under tree canopies for real food, good beer, and friendly conversation.

In Europe, centuries-old beer gardens are national monuments and living museums of cultural heritage. Some have served royalty while others take up sprawling sections of city parks, welcoming thousands of visitors each day. With classic Bavarian music and authentic food, a drink at a beer garden in Europe is like taking a step back in time. While over in the US, Europeans brought their time-honored drinking traditions with them, establishing old beer gardens that continue to tell community stories with mugs of dark lager and pounding polka.

Whether you’re looking to take part in age-old drinking customs or just want a place to bring your own food and relax, there’s sure to be a beer garden for you. So grab a stein and pull up a plate of bratwurst at one of these great beer gardens around the world.

Surprisingly, there are some great beer gardens in NYC. There's nothing like hitting a beer garden on a nice fall day. Berry Park is awesome. I can't wait to hit up some of the beer gardens in Munich.
