Five great places to drink a pint outdoors

1 of 5

Berlina Brew House & Restaurante: Three brothers run this Argentine brewpub in the heart of Patagonia, with house brews as impressive as the regionally inspired cuisine and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains from the jardín cervecero. Av. Bustillo 11750, Bariloche; cervezaberlina.com

2 of 5

Great Canadian Beer Festival: It happens but once a year and even then lasts for only two days, but since the GCBF moved outdoors, its record for good weather has been near perfection, and its selection of Canadian and U.S. craft brews exemplary. Sept. 7 and 8. Royal Athletic Park, Victoria; gcbf.com

3 of 5

Augustiner Bräustübl: The Austrian Augustiner brewery is different than the Munich operation of the same name, and the biergarten is smaller at a “mere” 1,500 seats, but nowhere in Salzburg will you find a more atmospheric and hospitable outdoor space. Augustinergasse 4, Salzburg; augustinerbier.at

4 of 5

Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden: It won’t seat thousands and you can’t bring your own food, but the beer garden at Bohemian Hall in Queens, New York, is a more-than-suitable substitute for the Munich original, even if its pedigree is more Czech than German. 29-19 24th Ave., Astoria, New York; bohemianhall.com

The White Horse on Parsons Green: It’s one of London’s finest, offering superb food and excellent beer, but perhaps the most attractive thing about this Fulham pub, in the summer at least, is its large patio immediately opposite Parsons Green. 1-3 Parsons Green, London; whitehorsesw6.com
