Milwaukee County Parks

Beer Gardens

Join Us in Spring for the 2019 Beer Garden Season

There are two seasons in Milwaukee: Winter and #BeerGarden! Our open-air beer gardens are open between April and October. Choose between five permanent beer gardens or the Traveling Beer Garden, which visits 13 different Milwaukee County parks each season. Bring your own glass and remember, when you drink at a beer garden, you're helping to fund future projects in the parks!
