With fall attempting to creep its way back into Austin, it’s the perfect time of year to sip a beer and clank steins together with friends in a proper beer garden.
While there are a handful of authentic beer gardens in the city, like the historic Scholz Garten and Draught House Pub, there are also plenty of amazing patios that essentially double as beer gardens as well, like Radio Coffee & Beer. Then there are other beer gardens offering a great range of food to go alongside those beers, like pizza at ABGB and kolaches and klobasniky at Batch. Finally, there are breweries with great outdoor spaces like Austin Beerworks, Live Oak Brewing Company, and Meanwhile Brewing, among many others.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.
