Just in time for your summer drinking needs, the aptly-named Glover Park Beer Garden opens on Wednesday. The summer-long pop-up takes over the outdoor patio of the Savoy Suites Hotel at 2505 Wisconsin Avenue, Northwest, and will serve a range of brews and German-style eats. 

Those who remember the long-gone Deck may recognize the surroundings. Though you won’t find tiki accents, it’s housed in a similar place as the once-popular (and often-rowdy) prep bar. Roughly 20 brews will run the gamut from generic bottles of Corona and Bud Light to craft drafts such as New Belgium Fat Tire, DC Brau Corruption IPA, and Atlas Rowdy Rye. A smallish food menu includes pretzel rolls, brats with kraut, and bacon grilled cheese. Those looking to catch a game will find two 50-inch televisions. 

Perhaps as a preventative measure against noise complaints—rumored to have shut down the Deck—the al fresco watering hole will close at 11 daily, opening at 5 Monday through Friday and at noon Saturday and Sunday.
