The stylish Biergarten, located on the top floor of Mercado Roma, (a new shopping complex full of restaurants and gourmet food stalls) with its open air terrace and retractable roof, is the ideal place to sink a few craft brews while enjoying the sunshine. Reached by way of an elevator the space is airy and bright with blackboards listing the large range of beers and other libations, bench seating and an abundance of greenery, hanging baskets emphasising the ‘garden’ part of the experience. A canopy of light bulbs add a misting of magic as night falls. They stock an excellent selection of beers, from easy-sippers to darker, more complex and bitter brews. From the small range of cocktails the Strawberry Smash is a refreshing, summery mix of gin, strawberries, cucumber and balsamic vinegar. Pleasant as it is your best bet here is still the beer. If you’re hungry they serve a number of tasty plates to accompany your glass of hops: eggy things, epic corn dogs, massive meaty-stuffed sandwiches, various wursts, sauerkraut and pretzels, good beer fodder all.
