On summer nights, who doesn't love a beer garden? Sitting outside at long communal tables, tucking into juicy sausages, hoisting a stein of beer. Though you can now buy your own traditional beer garden tables and benches, somehow having six or eight people in your backyard doesn't a beer garden make. You need a boisterous crowd. Draft beers in big mugs. Sausages and wursts. Definitely fries or slaw. Strings of lights. Maybe an oompah band. Standard Biergarten You can't beat the campy rooftop Biergarten of the Standard hote l at 5th and Flower for its wide-angle view of downtown skyscrapers.

Cambodia might not rank among the world's brewery or beer garden capitals, but change is coming. From its setting on the banks of the Tonle Sap river, Kingdom Breweries, Phnom Penh's newest boutique producer, opened in October 2010, is gearing up to give local brands Anchor and Angkor a run for their riel , using only the best German and Czech hops, premium German malt and top-quality water to produce the brand's flagship pilsner. "Fancy one?" Chief Executive Peter Brongers asked me, offering a bottle of the brewery's first batch from his office mini-fridge.

Fans of fast food trucks won't want to miss the mass gathering in Las Vegas on Oct. 18-20. The Silverton Casino Hotel , off Interstate 15 at the Blue Diamond Road exit, will host the return of the Las Vegas Foodie Fest . It will feature more than 30 trucks from Las Vegas , Los Angeles and around the country. The popularity of food trucks has grown in recent years, thanks in part to TV shows such as “ The Great Food Truck Race .” Two competitors from that series -- Yorba Linda's Bacon Mania and L.A.'s Buttermilk Truck -- will be among the vendors dishing up their wares.

If you've ever been to Coachella, you know the three-day music festival is a downright marathon. You're in the heat, jumping up and down for your favorite artists, screaming along to every song and fighting your way to the front of each stage. For this, you need fuel in the form of good food and strong libations. The festival is stepping up its food program this year with two on-site restaurants and a beer garden in addition to the regular food vendors and food trucks. Here's a look at all the offerings that will be available when it begins in mid-April: The beer garden will be located at The Terrace, the main festival food hub. There will also be bites from Ruth Chris Steak House , Las Casuelas Quinta , Baohaus and Pink's Chili Dogs . Some of the new food vendors include Wood-Fired Pizza, Just Tossed Organic Salads and Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches.

The Red Lion Tavern in Silver Lake was kitschy long before being kitschy became a hallmark of counterculture cool. The venerable German beer garden on Glendale Boulevard, which has always been earnest about its over-the-top Bavarian-themed decor and dirndl-clad bartenders, is now situated across the street from one of hipsterdom's most self-consciously ironic and aggressively kitschy bars, the Cha Cha Lounge. This faded Frau of Silver Lake was cool long before a pilgrimage of the young and tragically hip led to a steady gentrification process that last fall resulted in Forbes magazine dubbing Silver Lake "America's Hippest Hipster Neighborhood.

The Chamber of Commerce, in an emergency board meeting Tuesday, decided it would not be economically feasible for the group to manage the city's annual fair because the City Council on Monday eliminated beer sales at the event. As a result of the chamber's decision, the city will scale back the event from two days to one, City Manager Paul Philips said. The tentative date is Sept. 29.

Ten black mine workers were killed in a second night of factional fighting at the giant Vaal Reefs Gold Mine southwest of Johannesburg, South Africa, the Anglo American Corp. reported, bringing the two-day toll to 20. The fighting broke out at hostels housing thousands of miners. A spokesman said that "no reasons have been given" for the battles but that they may be related to clashes that broke out two weeks ago when union stewards tried to enforce a boycott of the mine's beer garden.

A sudden, severe storm that swept through St. Louis on Saturday collapsed a large sports bar tent outside Busch Stadium, leaving one person dead and more than 100 injured.    The person who died apparently suffered a heart attack, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported . Seventeen of those injured were taken to a hospital, including the man who had the heart attack; four people sustained critical injuries, the paper said. The tent had been set up as a beer garden next to Kilroy's Sports Bar, and a few hundred fans had gathered there to celebrate the St. Louis Cardinals' win over the Milwaukee Brewers earlier in the day, the Associated Press  reported . The incident happened  about 3:50 p.m., about an hour after the baseball game had ended.

Here we are, back at tricked-out Staples. I'm surprised they haven't torn it down, seeing as how it's been around a good 10 years, a rare stretch of preservation in a city that sneers at slightly aged things (Dodger Stadium a relic? Yeah, so is Lindsay Lohan, but I wouldn't let you tear her down just yet). So the Big Staple probably qualifies for historic status, though it lacks the comforting old stadium musk. I'm thinking of that beer hall cologne that develops after a certain amount of Budweiser seeps between layers of plywood deep in the stadium's skin.

Promoters of the Pacific Shoreline Marathon in Huntington Beach want to offer runners a beer after the race as a way to attract more participants, sponsors and dollars to the annual event. And despite the Police Department's objections, they will get their chance on a trial basis at the next race, Jan. 27. The City Council recently approved a beer garden for runners on several conditions, including a limit of two beers per runner and only within the exposition area at Pier Plaza after the race.

Opening a restaurant/bar and calling oneself Dr. Hops takes guts on the West Coast, where breweries have long delighted in maximizing the ingredient for all its tart and bitter glory. "That was a joke, initially," Roger Bott said. "We put it on the website with a little character, and it stuck from there. Home brewing, though, I was always using more hops than anyone said would taste good. " Out of the gate, however, Bott is going for wide appeal, putting the emphasis on balance at his recently opened the Lab in Agoura Hills (30105 Agoura Road)
