The Italian word piazza refers to a town’s central square or marketplace. Basically, it’s where locals go to mingle and gossip. It’s a fitting name for Piazza Beer Garden, which opened in September 2013 and has been attracting droves of chatty, beer loving Bethesdans ever since. The regularly rotated selection of suds features lots of favorites from the Chesapeake watershed, including Baltimore’s DuClaw brewery and Salisbury’s Evolution Craft Brewing Co.
