Morgan’s Pier has everything you could possibly want in a beer garden: river views, a ton of seating, and over 40 different beers to choose from. So, not surprisingly, it’s pretty much the biggest day drinking party in the city during the summer. Even with the huge amount of space it takes up under the Ben Franklin Bridge, Morgan’s Pier still gets crowded super quickly, so your best bet is to head here early, grab a few tables, and order enough pitchers so that you don’t have to get the bartender’s attention for the foreseeable future.
