The River Beer Garden

  • aldr7109
Hurry, it's almost the final day!

The River Beer Garden closes for the season on Sunday, September 27, 2020.


Brought to you by Philly River Stroll and Mainstay Independent Brewing, this first-come, first-served seating area is just a few feet away from Hardena at the entrance of Cherry Street Pier. Shaded by a canopy to protect visitors from the heat, The River Beer Garden is a casual pit-stop for guests as they mosey along the Philly Waterfront.
Safety Enhancements
  • The River Beer Garden is first-come-first-served.
  • Every time a guest enters the River Beer Garden at Race Street Pier, they must digitally sign-in. Signing in will not only give you updates on any exciting news about the Beer Garden, but will allow for contact tracing if it becomes necessary.
  • To enforce as much physical distancing as possible, the River Beer Garden will implement capacity restraints. If, at any time, capacity is reached, the Beer Garden will use a wait-list system that will send guests a text message letting them know when space has opened. During their time on the wait-list, guests are encouraged to order delicious treats from award-winning Hardena located just inside of Cherry Street Pier, walk around and enjoy the breathtaking views.
