    Another Great Beer Garden w/ Great Staff..the beer selection satisfactory....but again too small....

    No paradox of choice at Garden District, where American and German beers are high-end but not overwhelming. The Southern-style food here hits the spot regardless of how many beers you've chugged. Read more

    If you're hardcore call in and order a pig's head ($30). 1-2 weeks advanced notice required!

    We prefer our doughnuts washed down with a cold brew. Soak up the sun, suds, and fresh from-the-oven doughnut holes made daily.

    Outdoor beer garden. If it's cold, just sit under the heat lamp.

    Little garden, big eats! (Also, all the prices are wonky numbers so they can be made whole with tax, and I'm all about that.)

    You can never go wrong with Brat and Beer. And the outdoor atmosphere is super chill. The umbrellas are huge, so even if it's raining, chances are you'll still be able to sit outside.

    The Open Sunday Chick Filet is sadly not as great as Chick-fil-a. 👬

    Every piece of grilled meat on the menu: brisket and Carolina style pulled pork sandwiches -- and donuts!

    Brisket, pulled pork Carolina-style, German beers.

    While the atmosphere and beer selection is refreshing, the pork sandwich lacks a smoke flavor, even with the slaw topping. The brisket is the better sandwich, give that a try.

    Don't call it "Garden District." That's like saying "Reagan Airport."

    The curry wurst is amazing... and even better when paired with traditional German beers!

    Every day feels like Oktoberfest at everyone's favorite beer garden. The fence-enclosed picnic tables on 14th Street NW are some of the most prized seats in the city.

    Excellent pulled pork, good sides, nice rotating beer selection with acceptable prices for the neighborhood...but many, many times it is impossible to find a seat here. I recommend sunday boozing.

    Perpetually packed in the evenings, but come during the afternoon to be able to grab a table easily and relax with beer and barbecue. Call ahead for the whole smoked pig head if that's your thing

    This pork 'n beer stop's fronted by a picnic table-laden mini beer garden, and anchored by a small indoor bar pouring Bavarian liters. Read more
