4. Brauerei Eschenbräu Triftstrasse 67, Berlin, 13353

Although the 2000s baby brewery Brauerei Eschenbräu is know for its seasonals that dominate the beer garden's menu, its still got a handful of mainstays to satisfy beer drinkers of all kinds: a malty pils, a chocolatey dark, a fruity wheat, and a citrusy wheat. They're all easy to drink, and they all pair well with the snacks and other fare that rotates frequently on the beergarden's menu. The cellar's got a traditional German style and plenty of tables, but an evening under the beer garden's winding tree branches and string lights is not to be missed out on.

5. Prater Biergarten Kastanienallee Kastanienallee 7-9, Berlin, 10435

A venue that once served as a political meeting space, performance venue, theater, and public house is now one of Berlin's oldest outdoor beer gardens. Ideal for big group outings, this chesnut-shaded yard sports yellow picnic-styles tables, doused in light from string bulbs above. The attached Prater restaurant serves as much more than an alcohol sponge, featuring a seasonal menu with classic German fare like schnitzel, meatballs, and an egg/mustard mash called Senfeier mit Quetschkartoffeln, all accompanied by fresh vegetables from nearby farms.
