Beer gardens are like a backyard cookout where you don’t have to set anything up beforehand — or clean up afterward! If this sounds like your idea of a good time, then consider heading over to Bardo, a combination brewery, beer garden, and distillery near Rhode Island Row.
Named one of the 22 best beer gardens in the country, Bardo features 20-plus brews from esteemed brewermasters around the US, which makes for a diversity of beers that few other places can match. The sprawling outdoor space can accommodate 500 patrons sitting at picnic tables or standing to play games like cornhole. During the winter, indoor seating provides a place to sit and linger over a pint. Food trucks typically gather around Bardo, as well, and you’re free to bring in any food you like!
During the winter, Bardo is open Thursdays through Sundays.
