Independence Beer Garden
Cold beer and tasty food return to Independence Mall
opens April 21, 2016
Helmed by restaurateur Michael Schulson of Sampan in Midtown Village and designed by Groundswell Design Group, responsible for the incredible Spruce Street Harbor Park, IBG is sure to be a popular summer destination for the second summer in a row.
Wrapping 360-degrees around the Rohm & Hass Building, IBG has room for more than 300 guests with nearly half a dozen seating areas. The outdoor space lets you lounge in a rock garden on a large granite boulder, cozy up in a colorful Adirondack chair or grab a picnic table. Air-conditioned private seating areas, created from repurposed shipping containers, are also available.
Other notable features include lush greenery, a 10-foot projection television under cover, ping pong and table-top Jenga.
Food And Drink
A spread of crowd-pleasing summertime-appropriate fare will be reprised, too, with a new menu of dishes developed by chef Schulson and corporate chef Leo Forneas. Guests can expect casual and affordable eats ranging from hummus and popcorn to bacon-cheese burgers, barbecue ribs, buckets of fried chicken or fish and spit-roasted chicken.
But it wouldn’t be a beer garden without cold brews. The Independence Beer Garden features two bars with a total of 40 taps pouring local and domestic craft beers.
