Independence Beer Garden
Located across from the Liberty Bell, the aptly named Independence Beer Garden brings 20,000-square-feet of outdoor drinking and eating space to America’s most historic square mile. Helmed by Michael Schulson of Sampan fame and executive chef Travis Masar, a contestant on season 11 of Top Chef, the seasonal beer garden features an all-American food and drink menu: burgers, wings, mac and cheese and BLTs washed down by beer selections from Yards Brewing Company, Goose Island, Sly Fox, Dogfish Head and others. Adding to the atmosphere: fire pits, games, string lights and fully grown trees.
