Traveling Beer Gardens Open on May 17 with Keg Tappings at Greenfield & Juneau Park
The Traveling Beer Garden will visit twelve parks over the season.
The Traveling Beer Garden, now in its fourth year, will visit twelve parks over the season. The ‘Roll Out the Barrel’ tour will stay at each park for nearly four weeks, starting with Greenfield Park in West Allis from May 17-June 11. The ‘Pass Me a Pint’ tour stays at each park for two weeks, starting with Juneau Park in Milwaukee from May 17-29.
To celebrate the start of the tour a keg tapping will be held at both sites at 4pm, with live music and free beer and root beer available while supplies last.
The Sprecher Brewery fire truck will offer an ever-changing selection of craft beer and hard sodas at each of the stops on the tour and as with all of Milwaukee County Parks operated beer gardens, patrons can bring their own glassware to receive refill rates for beer and soda.
As well as live music on Wednesday to Saturday nights, beergardening activities will include a chance to see the US Open trophy at Juneau Park on Thursday evening and the first beer garden 5k will take place at 6:30pm on May 18 at Juneau Park. On June 1, a new beer garden fitness class called Hiit ‘n’ Hops will be held at Greenfield Park. Registration links for both events are available at www.mkebeergardens.com
This year the Traveling Beer Garden will also be accompanied by the Wicked Urban Grill food truck, Wisconsin’s only food truck with a charcoal grill. Food will include beer brats, pork loin sliders, loaded fries and weekly specials including a Friday Fish Fry.
The Traveling Beer Garden will open from 4-10pm on Mondays to Fridays and 11am-10pm on weekends with live music on Wednesday to Saturday nights from 5-8pm. Last call will be at 9pm. The full food menu and live music schedule is available at www.mkebeergardens.com or at https://www.facebook.com//TravelingBeerGarden/
