Tysons Biergarten

Where you’re sitting: On a 10,000-square-foot patio—upgraded and expanded from last year—nestled amid the office buildings and parking garages of Tysons. If you bring kids, there’s a playground. If you don’t, there are beer-pong tables, a.k.a. adult playgrounds.

What you’re drinking: The 18 taps lean toward traditional German and Belgian brews that go heavy on the syllables—Weihenstephaner Vitus and Eggenberg Hopefenkonig Pils, to name a few. They’ve also got more than 100 bottled American craft beers, which you can assemble into your own six-pack to go.

A little something extra: Much like a German beer hall in October, this place actually has its own currency. They’re called chips, and you buy them up front, then exchange them for beer and food. (Munchies include burgers, wings, sausage, fries and soft pretzels.)
