(Last UPDATED 12/5/21) Description and review of Der Biergarten, an open-air beer garden located in Midtown Sacramento.
A friend and I recently stopped by Der Biergarten in Midtown Sacramento for “Hoppy Hour”. Der Biergarten is located at 24th & K Streets. Select Hoppy Hour beers are $3 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Der Biergarten is an open-air German-style beer garden which was built utilizing shipping containers. One large shipping container houses the bar (with 32 beers on tap) and a smaller shipping container houses the restrooms.
It is a very attractive venue featuring communal tables, a casual atmosphere, and it has both shade and misters to help keep patrons comfortable on hot Sacramento days. Note: Der Biergarten is closed when it is raining.

Step up to the counter of the bar to place your order. It can be hard to make a decision as there are so many types of beers available. If you are unsure what to order it is probably best to let the bartender know what beers you have enjoyed in the past and ask for a recommendation(s). Cider is also an option.
My friend and I both decided to take advantage of one of the hoppy hour specials offered – and ordered the 16 oz. Alaskan Amber for $3 (half-price).
Alaskan Amber, American Amber Ale, is described as: Our flagship beer is based on a turn-of-the-century recipe that quenched the thirst of miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Smooth and richly malty, this altbier goes well with any meal.
We handed over our $3 and when we received our beverages we chose a seat at one of the communal tables. It was early so we had no difficulty in finding seating.
We both enjoyed our Alaskan Amber Ale – it is certainly a beer I would order again.
Der Biergarten also serves German fare to complement your beer or cider. While we did not sample the menu that day, they offer pretzels, German pizza, French fries/garlic fries, assorted waffle sandwiches and old fashioned “dogs”, a sausage platter with your choice of one, two or three of the day’s sausages, and apple strudel served warm. No need to go hungry at Der Biergarten.
My friend mentioned that she had played Corn Hole on a previous visit and had a lot of fun. Foosball and Ping Pong are other available options if you want to engage in an activity.
I should also mention that Der Biergarten welcomes well-behaved dogs – a big plus in my book!
