Best Beer Garden: Heights Bier Garten

Heights Bier Garten is a modern beer garden with a fluid atmosphere. The spacious yard has plenty of options for large parties or just a twosome swing session. With 94 taps, the well-trained staff can easily point you to something new or tried and true. European selections as well as Texas picks are well represented on the list. They even have mead if you’re feeling old-timey.

The interior is well lit in the ‘noon, while saplings shine at night. The playlist, played loud enough to get you grooving, floats back and forth from Cut Copy to Jay-Z. Oh, and if you get thirsty for whiskey, sashay to the left to Worcester’s Annex, where their list is so extensive bartenders are frequently up-and-down the ladder. The best of both worlds meet in the middle at Heights Bier Garten.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
