Birreria New York City. The “highest brewery in New York” occupies a space above Eataly, an Italian market complex created by Mario Batali. Under Birreria’s multimillion-dollar retractable roof, waiters serve a revolving series of remarkable cask-conditioned ales that in-house brewer Peter Hepp Jr. developed in collaboration with two Italian brewmasters and Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione. 200 5th Ave., (212) 937-8910 

Easy Tiger Austin. Waller Creek runs alongside the patio out back at this combination bakery and beer garden. The bakery specializes in chewy Bavarian-style pretzels, while “the chef’s enthusiasm for well-done comfort food comes through in thick sandwiches piled with house-made corned beef and pastrami.” 709 E. 6th St., (512) 614-4972

Lowry Beer Garden Denver. Colorado is home to a legendary craft beer industry that now has a new showcase: This 8,000-square-foot beer garden sits outside the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. It specializes in the offerings of such acclaimed locals as Avery, Odell, and Left Hand. 7577 E. Academy Blvd., (303) 366-0114
