This German beer garden, built in 1912 on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais, 30 minutes north of San Francisco, is members-only—mostly. Every weekend but the second of the month, Nature Friends opens the first floor and large patios of its Bavarian-style clubhouse to determined beer lovers willing to hike for a good buzz. In the spirit of tradition, most visitors arrive by trail (though others park in the nearby lot and take the 10-minute mini-hike down a paved walkway to the bar).

What to Order: A pitcher of beer to share with your fellow beer-chugging nature lovers.
