BEER. GARDEN.

BEER GARDEN. TWO WORDS THAT GET BETTER WHEN SAID TOGETHER, ESPECIALLY AS THE WEATHER WARMS. BEER. GARDEN. THEY ARE THE SHIT FOR SUMMER. AIRY, LAID BACK AND FESTIVE, DONE WELL EVEN THE FENG SHUI LOOSENS US UP: LARGE AND OPEN WITH LONG TABLES AND BENCHES, THEY MAKE US FORGET ABOUT PRIVACY, WITHOUT OVERCROWDING. WE GET SPACE, AND SOMETIMES BREEZES, HUDDLING WITH OUR PALS OVER A PICNIC TABLE. WE’VE SOUGHT OUT SOME BEER GARDENS ALL OVER NYC. HERE ARE THE BEST.

ZUM SCHNEIDER |

Zum Schneider does a great job with a small East Village space.  The outdoor tables are lined along the sidewalk, but have just enough room.  The cozy indoor space is uncluttered, oufitted with wooden picnic tables.  The beer menu isn’t huge, but big enough.  More importantly the selections are really tasty, and strong.  We got pretty soused on two and a half beers.  Beers come in three sizes.  Go for the small, and sample more.  The food is also good, and doesn’t require you be drunk to enjoy it.  I still have visions of the home made spatzle with cheese and the Bavarian sausage platter dancing in my head. The service was great and the mood was chill.  I had a serious crush on both waitresses, the two women next to us, and the guy across from me.  Beer fueled, maybe, but Zum Schneider gets all credit for setting and maintaining the great vibe.

RADEGAST HALL |

In the middle of Williamsburg, Radegast Hall has a cozy bar in front, and behind that the best indoor beer garden space in NYC.  A long skylit room (with windows that open up all summer), lined on each side with long wooden tables and benches, leading toward the grill in back.  The excellent beer selection is extensive (especially for bottled beer) with three sizes available for drafts.  Get great grilled sausages with kraut and perfect fries at the grill and bring them back to the table, or order entrees from the waitress.  The only drawback here is that it can get pretty busy weekend nights and lose some of the laid back vibe.  But hey, they pull ’em in because they know what they’re doing. Radegast Hall113 N 3rd St., Brooklyn, NY 11211. (718) 963-3973

STANDARD HOTEL BEER GARDEN |

A strong reason not to completely resent the skyrocketing rents and demographic upscaling in west Chelsea.  The Standard Hotel is either Logan’s Run-cool, or insufferably obnoxious (or both) but you just can’t bitch about the beer garden they’ve tucked under the Highline. Protected overhead with no walls on 3 sides, it’s perfectly open but sheltered, with lots of long tables.  They’re pushed a little close together, but not too tightly.  We were skeptical about the ticket system at first (you buy tickets and exchange them for food or beer), but when we were ready to go we only had to, well, go.  The biggest downfall is the beer selection.  Three beers on tap?  Come on.  But at least they were good.  Not the cheapest beer garden, but I’ll go back. It’s a big friendly outdoor space in the most unlikely of places. The Standard Hotel Beer Garden — 848 Washington St., New York, NY 10014. (212) 645-4646

BOHEMIAN HALL |

At 100 years old, This joint isn’t going anywhere, fortunately.   A review is almost pointless, but Bohenmian Hall can’t go unmentioned. It’s Astoria location allows for big indoor rooms and a vast outdoor space. Could they have given the waitress a little more help when we were there, and were the beers we ordered a little on the boring side?  Sure.  Were we sitting easily outside for hours, under trees, in a huge but spacious and happy crowd, and was the food great?  Yes, yes, yes, and yes.  Is this a great place to linger for hours, while getting pleasantly buzzed and fed?  Hell yes. Bohemian Hall — 29-19 24th Ave., Astoria, NY 11102. (718) 728-9278
