Wunder Garten’s beautiful greenspace began as a pop-up inspired by German beer gardens. But it was so popular that the colorful beer garden quickly became a permanent part of the NoMa neighborhood. Now it’s been around for seven years, pouring beers and bringing the community together for events like Yappy Hour.
Every Sunday afternoon, patrons are invited to bring their four-legged friends along for a few hours in the sunshine at Wunder Garten. From noon to 3 p.m., pups are welcome to accompany their owners for a free “pupucinno” and a meet-and-greet with other good boys and girls. For the humans, Wunder Garten’s roster of craft brews includes discounted $6 suds. A pup-friendly drink comes on the side of every adult beverage during Yappy Hour. Some of the suds come from nearby breweries, like the Port City Optimal Wit and the Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager, both from Virginia. Other draft brews have much farther to travel—such as the Hofbrau Hefeweizen from Germany and the Eggenberg Pilsner from Austria. Take your pick and enjoy a pint in the fresh air with your pup at your feet.
