Sup. Dimitrijevic Announces Plans to Expand South Shore Terrace Beer Garden
"Thank you to County Executive Abele for including the funding needed to start the process of expanding the successful South Shore beer garden in my district."
MILWAUKEE – Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic joined County Executive Chris Abele and Parks Director Guy Smith today to announced that the proposed 2020 Milwaukee County budget includes funding for the planning and design of an expanded South Shore Terrace beer garden.
“Thank you to County Executive Abele for including the funding needed to start the process of expanding the successful South Shore beer garden in my district,” said Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic. “The planning funds proposed in the 2020 county budget will work towards doubling the capacity of the beer terrace while reopening the northern storage portion of the pavilion. If you like the South Shore Terrace now, you will love this expansion which will bring even more revenue to our county and continue to keep South Shore a regional asset for all to enjoy.”
County Executive Abele included $50,000 in his proposed 2020 budget for planning and design work of the South Shore Pavilion’s beer garden, known as the South Shore Terrace.
“South Shore Terrace is not only a great showcase of Milwaukee County’s outstanding craft beer scene, it’s also become a wonderful way to try out a new neighborhood and spend time with friends after a long week,” said Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. “Supervisor Dimitrijevic and I are thrilled to announce the expansion on South Shore and can’t wait to get back out next summer to try even more stouts, ales, IPAs and everything else our local brewers are brewing.”
Able presented his 2020 Recommended Budget to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
For over a decade, Supervisor Dimitrijevic has energetically helped deliver county resources to revitalize South Shore Park. In recent months she has strongly advocated for the expansion of the South Shore Terrace, including the long overdue remodeling of the north side of the South Shore Pavilion, which is currently used for storage.
The project addresses the last area of South Shore Park that has not been improved during Dimitrijevic’s tenure. Its renewal will complete what has been a decade of renaissance in the South Shore.
