Zeppelin Hall is the prototypical beer garden. The hangar-sized space has three rooms with multiple bars serving steins of Oktoberfest and Hoegaarden, along with a huge backyard that’s partially covered during winter. Sit at one of the communal picnic tables and you’ll be surrounded by live music, projector TVs playing sports, and six guys from Hoboken getting really into giant Jenga. You don’t need to come here for the food on its own, but the BBQ - especially the spicy andouille and shredded brisket - is a better way to coat your stomach than dry pretzels and overcooked brats you’d find at most beer gardens.
