Only 30 minutes outside the city, Mount Tam State Park beckons outdoor enthusiasts with stunning vistas, waterfalls, rigorous hikes, and ... beer.
Perched high on Mt. Tam, the German Tourist Club is a bona fide German-style beer house. It boasts beer on tap, board games, and a stunning view, all from the comfort of a lodge. Bring your own picnic to complete the experience. (And don't worry — the hike back is a breeze.)
