Though décor is sparse at this no-frills beer garden, you can’t possibly miss it thanks to a gigantic mural of Elizabeth Taylor painted on the neighboring building. Inviting picnic tables and a smoke-free patio attract families (kiddos are welcome), dogs and pretty much anyone who enjoys being outside in nice weather (read: everyone). The beer list skews German, and drafts are available in glass boots. A planned expansion into the restaurant next door means soon guests will not have to depend on porta-potties.
