America's Best Beer Gardens
Grünauer, Kansas City, MO
A tasty Viennese-style menu (think Hungarian beef goulash and Sacher torte) is one draw at this hugely popular beer hall in Greater Downtown. Draft beers are largely German, though a convincing Weizenbock-style beer from California’s Lagunitas is also in the lineup. The wine list includes a number of excellent Austrian bottles, like the rich, floral Heidi Schröck Furmint. grunauerkc.com.
