America's Best Beer Gardens
Philadelphia's hip Midtown Village now has an excellent urban beer garden. Greek restaurant Opa converted its backyard (a former parking lot) into a hangout with ping-pong tables and a short food menu that includes pretzels and mustard made with Dale's Pale Ale. Four drafts include the spiced Allagash White, and bottles include the excellent Saison Dupont farmhouse ale from Belgium. opaphiladelphia.com.
