Estabrook Beer Garden represents a return to an era that disappeared from our landscape with the start of Prohibition. It is the first truly public beer garden in America in nearly 100 years. Inspirations came from Milwaukee’s brewing legacy and the operation is modeled after beer gardens found in modern day Munich, Germany. The Estabrook Beer Garden is a place for all people to come together enjoy nature, a great beer and make new friends.
Estabrook Park lies on the banks of the Milwaukee River, the beer garden is set on a bluff just above a waterfall. Visitors arrive by foot, bicycle, automobile, kayak and canoe. Park Amenities include trails, playgrounds, disc golf course, dog park, soccer fields and a riverfront boardwalk.
Estabrook Beer Garden features beers imported from the Munich Hofbräuhaus. All beer is served in the appropriate 1/2 Liter or Full Liter heavy glass mug. A $5 refundable deposit is required for the use of a mug, visitors are always welcome to bring their own favorite beer stein. Food is limited to beer garden basics of Bratwurst, Hot Dogs and our Famous Giant Fresh Baked Pretzel. Because the beer garden is truly a public place, visitors are welcome to bring picnic baskets with their favorite fare and soft drinks.
License restrictions strictly prohibit the carry-in of any alcohol. Grilling is not allowed in the beer garden and the immediately surrounding park areas.
