When the Milwaukee County Parks Traveling Beer Garden rolls into Red Arrow Park on Wednesday July 16th, the County and City will put on a true showing of intergovernmental cooperation. County Executive Chris Abele will kick things off at 4pm by buying the first beer for Mayor Tom Barrett. Also, all County and City of Milwaukee employees will receive $1 off tap beer and tap soda on opening night with a valid work ID.

Red Arrow Park is named in honor of the U.S. Army National Guard’s 32nd Infantry Division. All active military members and veterans will receive $1 off tap beer and tap soda during the 12 day stop at Red Arrow Park, a valid military or veteran ID is required.

“With Red Arrow Park in the shadow of City Hall, Mayor Barrett and I thought this was a perfect opportunity to toast the hard working employees of the County and City,” County Executive Abele said. “The location also gives us the chance to thank the men and women of the military who have done and continue to sacrifice so much for us.”

“The traveling beer garden has attracted people to parks all across Milwaukee and we welcome it downtown,” Mayor Barrett said.

The beer garden will be at Red Arrow Park from July 16-27th. It is open on weekdays from 4-10pm and weekends 11am-10pm.

The Traveling Beer Garden has been a huge hit this summer, with stops at Whitnall Park, McKinley Park and Doctors Park. After Red Arrow, the beer garden goes to Greene Park from July 30 – August 10th and Falk Park from August 13 – 24th.
