A fresh beer being poured at a local beer garden near Olympus Steelyard in Chandler, Arizona.



Beer gardens are the ultimate hangout for enjoying a cold drink on a hot day, especially in the open air. This beer-loving German tradition has long since made its way to downtown Chandler.

Check out three popular beer gardens located less than 15 minutes away from our apartments in Chandler, Arizona.


In classic beer garden form, most of the seating at the Sleepy Whale is on the spacious patio with shaded tables. Enjoy an incredible selection of beers on tap, everything from IPAs to stouts, with a strong emphasis on Arizona's breweries. The Sleepy Whale does not serve food, ensuring that cold beer remains the center of attention, but they often invite food trucks to set up outside. You're also free to order in from the nearby restaurants. The friendly staff, open layout, and laidback vibe all contribute to making this place a gem for hanging out with friends.


Looking for a lively spot to grab a brew and also play fun games with friends? Along with an impressive beer menu, Quarthaus boasts a quirky collection of games like Jenga, ping pong, Connect Four, and even frisbee golf. The cozy atmosphere of this large outdoor beer garden can't be found anywhere else. Lounging around lawn furniture and comfortable couches will make you feel like you're hanging out in your neighbor's backyard. The space is also dog-friendly, so feel free to bring your pup. QuartHaus doesn't serve food, but a partnership with the restaurant next door makes getting food with your cold beer a seamless process.


What pairs better with a cold beer than a fresh pizza from a brick oven? Craft 64 has become as well known for its specialty beers as its delicious, from-scratch pizza. Yes, even the mozzarella is freshly made. Enjoy a rotating selection of 30 beers on tap, including eight varieties made by Craft 64, a range of Arizona craft beers, and some handpicked imported bottles.

After the beer garden, keep the fun going by catching a nearby comedy show. There's always plenty to do in downtown, and living at the Olympus Steelyard makes it all accessible. Contact us to learn more about our luxury apartments in Chandler, AZ.
