Although only the remnants remain of this beer garden's past life as a biker bar, it’s still the first port of call on a sunny day for the beer-drinking masses. Armed with around 40 beers on tap, a huge backyard filled with picnic tables, and grill that pumps out a mean burger, plus an old pool table and vintage arcade games that have probably been there since they were new, Zeitgeist pulls in a very mixed crowd of rockers, techies, off duty bartenders, and creative types along with a table of bros trying to out chug each other. Sigh. Luckily, the staff put up with zero bulls*it, so don’t be shocked if you see someone get booted.

Their taps have a bit of everything pouring, from the well known like Stella, PBR and Sierra Nevada to smaller brews that will blow your mind. While the bartenders might be a bit less than courteous to your questions when it’s four deep, they actually have a lot of knowledge on the liquids they’re pouring.  If you’re that token non-beer friend in the crew, don’t fret - they’ve got a full bar with a solid whisky selection and take pride in their Bloody Marys.  

They’re also open til 2am every day, so if you find yourself at odds in the AM and need a beer, they’ll totally get your back and never judge.
