I stopped by Love City Brewing in the Callowhill neighborhood Tuesday to check out the opening of its new beer garden as the outdoor sipping season kicks off.

The intrigue: The beer garden offers a relaxing outdoor space next to the viaduct, has plenty of covered areas in case the weather turns and uses repurposed materials, like shipping containers.

Details: The space has about 100 seats, including lounge seating, and is located at 10th and Hamilton streets, which is across the street from Love City's taproom.

  • Its menu includes cocktails, beer, wine, cider and snacks, including sourdough pretzel nuggets and chips and salsa.
  • Plus: It's dog-friendly.

What I tried: The brewery released a new beer to mark its four-year anniversary on Tuesday, a Pilsner named Country Feedback. It's light, refreshing and packed with flavor.

  • Cost: $6 for a pint, $12 for a four-pack.

What they're saying: Melissa Walter, the brewery's co-founder, told me the outdoor space will help the brewery attract customers after the city revived its indoor face mask mandate.

  • Masks or proof of vaccination aren't required to enter the outdoor beer garden.
  • "Walk in, hang out, grab a beer, relax," Walter said.

Be smart: The brewery's indoor space does require proof of vaccination to enter, which means it's exempt from the city mask mandate.

Open: Monday-Thursday, 4-10pm; Friday, 4pm-12am; Saturday, 12pm-12am; Sunday, 12-8pm.
