Like a lot of other beer gardens in the city, Independence Beer Garden is covered in greenery and has rows of long tables made for supporting multiple large containers of beer. Unlike most other beer gardens, this one has legitimately great food and serves lunch and dinner with things like burgers and tacos every day in the summer. IBG also hosts competitive lawn game leagues, in case your casual beach version of corn hole isn’t satisfying your genetic disposition to overly competitive about everything.
