When Barley and Vine Biergarten opened their doors, we were eager to invade their patio, littered with long picnic tables that encourage communal carousing. Typically open at 4 p.m., the bar extends their hours on the weekends to welcome day drinkers at noon, and on Sundays, the welcome wagon has some extra sheen. Guest chefs grill out in the garden, serving free food to famished folks guzzling craft beers on draft or in bottles. For those in the Milk District already spoiled by the selection at Sportstown and Milk Bar, maybe it’s the new kid on the block, but making friends is easy when you have such a cool backyard.
