Cultural Note: Biergarten

A rustic open-air pub, or beer garden, which is traditional in Bavaria and Austria but can now be found throughout Germany. It is usually set up for the summer in the yard of a pub or restaurant and serves beer and simple meals. In Munich beer gardens the drink comes in a litre-sized glass, called a Maß. The standard everyday pale beer most people order is a Helles, a dark beer is a Dunkles, and a wheat beer is a Weißbier.
