Steeplechase Beer Garden, Brooklyn, NY
Taking inspiration from the former Steeplechase Amusement Park that stood in the same spot for over 65 years, this beer garden features funhouse mirrors, an arcade, outdoor games and live shows. Local beers such as Coney Island Brewery, which is right next-door, are the focus of the taps. Come harvest time, they’ll brew their own beer with the hops growing on the garden’s trellises. 1904 Surf Avenue
