Of Beer Gardens and Pubs

Michael Klein followed up late Friday with more details on some of last week’s most interesting developments.

Klein says no to a story published in the Inquirer’s business section. He reports that a brew pub is not coming to the Shops at Liberty Place.

And as for the beer garden by Stephen Starr in Fishtown, it  seems likely that it will actually happen and initially will be outdoor only.

As for what Starr’s outdoor beer garden might look like, the Illadelph points us towards the Standard Hotel’s Biergarten in the Meatpacking District of New York for a possible idea. Others in our comments have speculated it might look something like Brooklyn’s Radegast hall & Biergarten. Both seem worthy inspirations.
