About Wunder Garten:

Inspired by the Bavarian beer gardens made famous in Germany, Wunder Garten began in 2015 as a pop-up beer garden, taking advantage of the unused lots throughout NoMa, giving the underserved residents of the neighborhood a fun place to gather with family and friends for ice cold beers and sunshine. In 2016 Wunder Garten moved to a more permanent location after signing a multi-year lease in the same neighborhood where they have been ever since. Wunder Garten has become known for their dog-friendly policies and annual celebrations of traditional Bavarian events like Oktoberfest, Fruhlingsfest and Winterfest.
