Why is it called beer garden?

Initially, beer gardens were an extension of the brewery. Wineries became places for breweries to ferment and sell their beers.

The breweries set up long tables and benches and called this space the brewery's “beer garden”.

The beer gardens were spacious, family-friendly outdoor spaces that encouraged customers to stay. As they developed in American cities from the 1840s to the 1870s, music, games, and other entertainment tended to be part of the appeal.

Later, Anheuser-Busch capitalized on this idea by creating a series of theme parks called Busch Gardens. Whether you say applause or applause, a cold beer enjoyed on a wooden picnic table under lush trees and a blue sky always tastes great. For generations, Europeans and Americans have enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of German beer gardens, where beer is often sold in large glass jugs and laughs abound, while leather pants are optional. Although originally from Germany, the open-air tavern has gained a strong following in the United States and around the world.

In the countryside, they usually offer a view of the area's surroundings; in towns and cities, an open-air tavern is an open garden space. You don't need to know German to order a wheat beer in an open-air tavern, but saying noch ein bier, bitte (another beer, please) will earn you points if the waiter wears leather pants. However, neighboring regions had nearly identical beer cultures, says Evan Rail, a Prague-based beer expert and contributor to Wine Enthusiast. These cellars, which were usually about 40 feet deep, were used to store the beer that was prepared during the winter so that people would have something to drink between the dry months of May and September.

Bavarian breweries were allowed to sell food to their customers again in 1897, but by then going with food from home had become a tradition. In these wineries, beer barrels were covered with ice; to ensure even cooler temperatures, breweries planted broad-leaved chestnut trees above the basements to shade them. In response, large breweries dug basements on the banks of the Isar River to keep beer cold during storage. Features of a traditional beer garden include trees, wooden benches, a gravel bed, and freshly prepared meals.

The appeal of drinking beer outside is eternal, but outdoor breweries have arrived relatively recently in the United States. That's all well and good, but that meant that in summer, when thirst was at its peak, only hot non-alcoholic beer was offered. These drinking establishments were well lit and served the well-known lager-type beer, instead of the ale type beers or whiskey, which is common in Irish American taverns. That is the discouraging message that 16th century Germans subject to the Bavarian Brauordnung (beer regulation) would have received.

Customers are advised to bring their own mugs to enjoy the beers imported from the Hofbräuhaus in Munich. With the generalization of lager beer in the late 19th century, outdoor breweries became more popular than ever. A notable and distinctly Czech contribution to the American beer scene is Pilsners, a style of pale lager beer introduced in 1842, named after the Czech city of Pilsen. Simple tables and benches were placed among the trees, giving rise to the popular open-air tavern that we know today.
