Milwaukee County Parks Brings Back a Milwaukee Tradition
The Milwaukee County Parks in partnership with Hans Weissgerber III, has announced the grand opening of the Estabrook Beer Garden, on Wednesday June 20 at 6 pm. The Garden is located between Hampton Ave. and Capital Dr. on Estabrook Parkway overlooking the Milwaukee River. To kick off the grand opening there will be a ceremonial beer taping and live music. Hours of operation are daily from noon to 8:30 pm.
You will be able to also purchase both beer and wine, with the beer being served in authentic German style glass mugs. There will be snacks available and the public is invited to bring their own picnic baskets. We encouraged you to make new friends with the shared table seating as you listen to the Milwaukee River flowing below. Cash is the only form of payment accepted at this time.
Hans Weissgerber III, Managing Director of Old German Beer Hall stated, “Beer gardens offer an opportunity for people from all walks of life to relax and enjoy a beer in a beautiful park setting with friends and family.”
Beer Gardens in Milwaukee have been a long standing tradition that brought both families and neighbors together in a social setting used to unite communities together. From the early arrival of German immigrants in Milwaukee, beer gardens began to spring up along the banks of the Milwaukee River. By the late 1800’s beer gardens were prolific throughout the city, they had become the center of summer social life and could be found in many city and county parks.
