“Charlotte Beer Garden offers one of the largest selections of draft beers you’re likely to find in a single restaurant, with more than 400 beers on tap. Visitors can enjoy their beer of choice at the indoor-outdoor beer bar or on the heated patio,” the report says.

USA Today asked a panel of beer experts to nominate their top spots to enjoy a beer outdoors, then readers across the U.S. voted their favorite.
