Nature Friends Tourist Club

Nature Friends Tourist Club

Map
30 Ridge Ave., Mill Valley, CA 94941

This German beer garden, built in 1912 on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais, 30 minutes north of San Francisco, is members-only—mostly. Every weekend but the second of the month, Nature Friends opens the first floor and large patios of its Bavarian-style clubhouse to determined beer lovers willing to hike for a good buzz. In the spirit of tradition, most visitors arrive by trail (though others park in the nearby lot and take the 10-minute mini-hike down a paved walkway to the bar).

What to Order: A pitcher of beer to share with your fellow beer-chugging nature lovers.
