Beer Gardens in Jersey City

Although Pier 13 is not technically a Biergarten and not in Jersey City, that doesn’t mean they don’t have tons of beers to drink and fantastic places to sit and drink it.

Pilsener Haus & Biergarten(Open)

Beer Gardens in Jersey City

Even though this Biergarten is located in Hoboken, we felt it deserved a spot on the list. Customers are in love with their grilled sausages and bratwurst. Also notable are their giant Bavarian-style pretzels and saurkraut.

“Welcome to Hoboken’s Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, an authentic Austro-Hungarian Biergarten with some of the best dining in the region. Set in a turn-of-the-century beer hall with an adjacent, sunny Biergarten, it’s the perfect place to spend the day with good friends and good cheer.”

Location: 1422 Grand Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Surf City(Open)

Although not technically a Biergarten, this is a great place to hang out and have a beer with friends and family.

One Yelper says, “This is my favorite bar in Jersey City and not because I live a block away from it 😉 It’s got a great vibe with wonderful views of the marina! It does get super packed on the weekends, so expect long lines and slowed service. Come here, relax and soak in the summer sun all you can.”

Location: 1 Marin Blvd, Jersey City, NJ 07302
