Americans have long admired and embraced the al fresco approach. That’s why we have some of the best rooftop bars, outdoor restaurants, breweries and other tasting rooms on the planet. The Beer Garden is an open-air party of craft beer, with a mix of frothy beers, clinking glasses, grilled food and happy faces.
