A big part of our downtown rebirth will be driven by events, as we bring more people — and more energy — back to our city center with opportunities to gather and have a good time.
The latest example: European Beer Gardens.
The downtown South Milwaukee beer garden is back for a full season in 2021 — and it’s now open.
From the Brewtown Buzz South article …
Showcasing a select list of craft beers, games and live music, European Beer Gardens, which shares a space with the South Milwaukee Downtown Market at 1022 Madison Ave, is a partnership between Moran’s Pub owner James Moran and Brittany Rosales, owner of Rose Mob Grill food truck.
“I’m excited to partner with James again,” Rosales said in a recent press release. “My family is from Mexico, and it’s the same there and everywhere in the world–we need a chance to come together, especially this summer, and downtown South Milwaukee is the perfect place to do it.”
“What better way to celebrate our European roots than with a beer garden?” Moran added. “This will offer something different to the community.” …
European Beer Gardens is conveniently located near a number of South Milwaukee restaurants, including Barbiere’s Italian Inn, Azteca Restaurant, The Tap Room, Burger Town, China Chef, and Spirits Bar & Grill.
The beer garden features eight craft beers from Danish and Midwestern breweries on tap, among them Pistachio Cream Ale (Indeed Brewing), Moran’s Pub Lager (Shorts Brewing Co.), Fat Pug oatmeal stout (Maplewood Brewery), and Foggy Geezer hazy IPA (War Pigs). A portion of beer sale proceeds will benefit local charities. Charities interested in partnering with European Beer Gardens can contact Moran at 414-902-0148 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
