Beer Garden in the Mountains
Sure, there's plenty of beer in San Francisco
- but for those who are will to venture outside of the city for this hidden gem, the reward is almost too good to be true. Drive out to Downtown Mill Valley and hike the Dipsea Steps (all 700 of them!) up to the Sun Trail. About 1/2 mile in, you'll round a corner and set your eyes on a majestical sight - a German-style beer house! Bring snacks and meet people from near and far while you play Pictionary and learn to dance the Polka (yes, they have lessons). Check their website for openings - the club is only open to the public on certain weekends.
