The outdoor biergarten (translation: beer garden) has heaters and an outdoor fire pit, allowing for three-season seating at the communal drinking tables imported from Germany, where they know a thing about communal drinking tables and being cold. Sure, it might not be as "cozy" as huddling up indoors with a warm drink in your hands and a roaring fire at your back, but Germans are of a hardier stock... so suck it up, put on some mittens, and have a few beers. Plus, the colder outdoor temps keep the beer cold!
Red Coat Tavern Royal Oak
One of metro Detroit's most beloved burgers is served in this vaguely Brit-themed pub with a great beer list, an even better "SECRET" beer list, AND a big stone fireplace and hearth. Ahhhhhh "hearth." It's the kind of word that just makes you FEEL warm, you know?
