Beer Gardens Pop Up All Around Hamanassett


Enjoying a beer on a warm summer day can only be enhanced by enjoying that beer outdoors. Fortunately, there are numerous pop-up beer gardens in the areas surrounding Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast to choose from this summer.

Spruce Street Harbor Park: Open for its second year through September 27 this pop-up park can be enjoyed day or night. The park is free with pay as you go food, drinks and games. Swing in a hammock, play ping pong, listen to music or cool off by the fountain. Then check out some of the food trucks and concession stands where you can find a rotating list of summer cocktails, and a wide selection of craft beers including Spruce Street Harbor Park’s very own Lazy Hammock IPA courtesy of Yard’s Brewing Company.

Independence Beer Garden: This expansive, all-American beer garden overlooks the Liberty Bell and Independence National Historic Park. You can’t get more American than that. Along with 40 taps of regional and domestic craft beers there are plenty of American favorites to enjoy with games and food, like franks in a blanket and mac and cheese. Open seven days a week but closing times vary.

Longwood Gardens Beer Garden: As part of the exhibit, Nightscape, Longwood will also feature a Beer Garden from July 1 through Oct. 31 on Wednesday through Saturday evenings. Featuring Victory Brewing Company guests can sit under the stars and enjoy pub fare accompanied by three beers on tap, including a signature Longwood Seasons: Summer Zest, which uses lemons grown in Longwoods gardens.

Winterthur Beer Garden: No tickets or reservations are required at this beer garden, featuring local craft beers and Pennsylvania German inspired fare, but museum and garden access is not included. The beer garden will be open on select Fridays throughout the summer.

Battleship New Jersey: This one is more of a craft beer festival. Twenty plus New Jersey brewers will pour their beers at the Beer on the Battleship Craft Beer Festival from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. on June 27. Guests will enjoy live music, food and tours of the Battleship New Jersey.
