From July 15 to September 30, Tiato’s (tea-ah-tow) awesome outdoor herb garden/patio turns into a Summer beer garden every Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. The German-heavy brew menu clearly pays homage to the "beer garden's" country of origin by featuring several quality German beers including the world’s oldest dark beer Barock-Dunkel, the light and dark beer blend Anno 1050 created for the 95th anniversary of the brewery, and the impressive pilsner Rieder Classic.
To add their twist of Asian fusion on the beer garden concept, Tiato will also offer numerous hard to find beers from Vietnam, including Hue and Saigon on tap, as well as some of other Asian beers from Thailand and Japan, such as Singha and Sapporo. In total, the Tiato Beer Garden will offer more than 20 beers on tap and by the bottle every Friday night.

You've got the beer, but what about the bites? The Beer Garden menu includes three premium sausages: lamb Merquez sausage with grilled halloumi and harissa sauce; chicken apricot and basil sausage with tzatziki; and grilled rosemary bratwurst topped with sauerkraut and mustard sauce. For burger enthusiasts, choose from three varieties of sliders such as shark, grass fed beef, and vegetarian. Yes, shark. For the first time ever, Tiato will also sell mini-boxes of An's famous garlic noodles for only $4; possibly the best noodles I've ever had. You've heard of them; they're at Beverly Hills' Crustacean, one of An's more upscale restaurants. If you can't make up your mind, try the Tiato Beer Garden Tasting Flight ($21): you get to pair three sausages with three premium German and Asian beers.
