Best Biergarten for the Masses

Central Machine Works

Something reassuring after social distancing has become habitual is seeing a sea of tables spread out over a large outdoor space. CMW's enormous biergarten offers such a space, with plenty of room for kiddos and doggos too. Its converted warehouse has become a massive beer hall as well, from which taps aplenty pour out tasty craft brews and innovative handmade seltzers with flavors like peach-basil and pineapple-jalapeño. An outdoor stage hosts live music pumped out from a top-notch sound system, and with shows, DJs, movie nights, tiki nights, and Austin FC game airings, there's plenty of entertainment to choose from. But it's also just a perfect place to relax, catch up with friends, and share a pizza.
