English for the real thing, which is a German biergarten.

For those who haven't tried it, there are very few things in this world, more pleasant than sitting outside on a sunny afternoon, drinking a beer, sitting on a wooden bench under an umbrella.

To add to the effect, and eliminate some of the unpleasantness, make sure you have sunglasses, and try to get a hold of a ceramic stein. Sunlight can skunk a beer pretty quickly when it's in a glass container.

3 or 4 liters later, as the sun sets and you realize you should be heading home, the day is finally starting to cool off, making the walk back much easier than it would have been in the heat of the afternoon.

In the end, it all comes down to efficiency.
