Get a seat all around a hearth pit, at an umbrella-shaded patio desk, or perform a spherical of bocce or cornhole — beneath the partial roof cover or in the open up air, with or without having libation in hand.
Beginning on July 30, the beer garden stage will perform host to dwell songs just about every Friday and Saturday night. Slated to perform that weekend are Chris and Julie Moore on July 30, and The Rooftop Job on July 31. For the entire leisure agenda, stop by oliversbeergarden.com
