While many a Boulder culinary landmark celebrates happy hour, few places are as vibrant and diverse as Bohemian Biergarten {2017 13th Street, Boulder; 720.328.8328}. Tucked away just off Pearl Street downtown, it’s an ideal location for nearby business folks, students scampering down from The Hill, and visitors who settle at the iconic Boulderado or St Julien. Much like the stein-slung gardens of Germany herself, Bohemian Biergarten is rich with rustic charm—rows of old wooden benches, plentiful brick, and odd German and Eastern European beer paraphernalia make this place seem like a stop in Munich.

If you’re looking to wind down during the happiest of hours, keep these BB deets in mind:

On Mondays, happy hour runs 3-6pm and 9-11pm. Half-liters of premium suds are often $6-10, but expect “happy” discounts.

On Tuesdays, $8 liters running all day mean you can probably stop in for one at lunch and grab your second after work. No—you definitely can.

For wine lovers, Wednesdays offer $2 glasses of wine all day.

Thursdays mix things up with $5 beers and $3 shots of Jameson. Because we all need a chaser.

Friday-Sunday deliver top-notch musical acts, sports games on the big screen, and colorful local gatherings (we once spotted a mustache club).

Oh, and fair warning: Don’t expect dozens of taps and Colorado brews galore. Bohemian Biergarten is truly all about Old World suds. They are the masters, after all. Here’s a taste of the labels and varietals on offer: Hacker-Pschorr Dunkel and Maibock, Warsteiner Märzen, Paulaner Hefeweizen, and König Ludwig Weißbier. These rotate seasonally, of course, so don’t expect the heavier brews in June.

If you get a little peckish during the beer-chugging, then dip into (what else?) a pretzel and sausage. Noms.

On top of all of that, BB pulses with energy—and occasionally an oompah-pah. What are you waiting for? Get happy!
