Beer Garden Season: Winter Edition

We used to have two seasons in Milwaukee: Winter and #BeerGarden
Now we are extending the fun …

NEW! South Shore Terrace Rentable Chalets

COVID-Safe, Cozy Structures Feature Large Window With Expansive Views at Milwaukee’s Favorite Beachside Beer Garden

By Reservation Only: Dec. 17–mid-March

Milwaukee County Parks staff, the people who present the South Shore Terrace Kitchen and Beer Garden, offer a winter take on the comfort, togetherness and happy times they inspire during the regular beer-garden season. What had been the outdoor table space at the beer garden has been transformed into a village of 10 reservable, heated chalets with large open windows and views of Lake Michigan or the glowing fire pits. Service is only available to the reserved chalets.

90-Minute Reservation: for up to 6 people (same household) OR 2 people (different households) $75 (includes up to $50 food and beverage credit)
