The Traveling Beer Gardens will return in 2019

What are the Traveling Beer Gardens?
The Traveling Beer Gardens are two, simultaneously running, tours traveling through Milwaukee County Parks 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.

Sprecher Brewing Company Beverages
Our exclusive beer partner, Sprecher, offers an ever-changing selection of craft beer and hard sodas at each of the stops on the tour. Cider, wine, Shakparo (Sprecher's gluten-free beer), and non-alcoholic beverages are also available.

Souvenir Glasses
The glass pints and steins are yours to keep! Bring them back during the tour and get a refill at a discounted price. Use the glass at any Milwaukee County Parks Beer Gardens.

Live Music
Enjoy live local music from musicians including Trapper Schoepp, Faux Fiction and Nickel & Rose at Wednesday night keg tappings (held at 5pm on the first date of each tour stop) and on Fridays & Saturday nights from 5-8pm! Live music is presented by Klement's Sausage - the official sausage of Milwaukee County Parks.


Iron Grate BBQ Food Truck
New for 2018, the Iron Grate BBQ food truck will be visiting on select dates to serve up wings, pulled pork, riblets and pork chops. They'll be hosting five whole hog nights through the season too!
