The Traveling Beer Garden will return in 2020

What are the Traveling Beer Gardens?
The Traveling Beer Gardens are two restored fire trucks, converted into a mobile beer truck serving up 12 craft brews from Milwaukee’s Sprecher Brewery. Two trucks travel around Milwaukee County Parks on two simultaneously running tours between May and September.

The Roll Out the Barrel Tour stops at each location for three weeks. The Pass Me a Pint Tour stops for two weeks.

The Traveling Beer Garden is run by Milwaukee County Parks concessions staff. All revenue collected goes back into improving the parks.
