Garage has locations in both Fishtown and East Passyunk, and both are large, relatively empty spaces with garage doors that are thrown up as soon as the temperature hits 60 - making it a great place to day drink during the summer. It has one of the biggest selections of canned beer in the city, which means you’ll generally find people combing through the 40+ page menu with a look of sheer terror in their eyes, trying to make a decision between 100 different IPAs.
