Enjoy a beer outdoors in the warm weather.

It's the weekend before the Fourth of July and the forecast is sunny and hot. 

If you're looking for a spot to enjoy the summer weather while enjoying a drink outside in Philly, we have some ideas.

There's a pop-up beer garden on the steps of The Bourse

Start getting excited for Fourth of July by drinking at a beer garden facing Independence Mall this weekend. The pop-up at The Bourse Marketplace, a fancy food hall opening soon, will only be there for five days. Don't miss it.


Catch a "ShakesBEER" performance in Manayunk's Pretzel Park

On Saturday night, make plans to drink in Pretzel Park, while watching a free performance.

Watch as inebriated actors perform a staged reading of Shakespeare's "Hamlet." Every time they flub a line, they have to take a sip of beer – and the audience is encouraged to take a sip, too.


Brews & Views at the Free Library of Philadelphia is back

You can drink on the roof of the Free Library of Philadelphia's Parkway Central branch this weekend.

Every night, through July 3, the beer garden will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Enjoy beer, wine and cocktails, while taking in views of the city skyline.


And something to look forward to...

A garden bar is opening at the Rodin Museum on the Parkway

Outside the Rodin Museum.

The Rodin Museum, located along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, contains the largest collection of sculptor Auguste Rodin's works outside of Paris.

In July, you'll be able to grab a drink in the museum's garden. And if you have a dog, you're welcome to bring them to join you.
