Brew Review: Biergarten at Desert Botanical Gardens

Real life is so underrated. That's what I found myself thinking as I wandered through the dimly lit pathways of the Desert Botanical Gardens on Saturday night. In real life, security guards prevent you from going places. But at Biergarten, Desert Botanical Gardens' beer festival, security guards want to make sure you ticket gets punched so you can have another beer. In real life, food requires cooking or at least enough effort to get in your car and drive somewhere. At Biergarten, one need only follow the sounds of music emanating from various parts of the gardens to find not only delicious German specialties like brats and potato pan cakes, but several people waiting to fill up the tiny beer mug hanging from your neck. 


So what was available to drink and were those brews worthy of such a heavenly event? Let's discuss.
