Welcome back to day two of the Summer Drinking Showdown! Yesterday two great rooftop bars entered in a fight to the deck, and only one emerged: POV Lounge, which checked the Rock & Roll Hotel out of the competition. We’ll see POV again in the next round.
Today’s beery bash involves two popular beer gardens. On the one side we have H Street’s Biergarten Haus, a Euro Disneyland of brews that keeps its cozy backyard open year-round for sipping steins of Spaten Lager and filling up on sausages and schnitzel. Taking on the Germanic giant: Northeast neighbor Bardo Brewpub, a legend in its own right among DC drinkers. Once a happening Arlington brewpub in the 90’s, Bardo is enjoying a second life as a beer-filled outdoor playground on Bladensburg Road, open to humans and their four-legged pals for lawn games, live music, and of course, plenty of fresh-brewed suds.
So which beer garden does it better? Vote now, vote later. Polls close at 5.
