A done deal: Humboldt Park Beer Garden liquor license approved; will open June 30th

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The Humboldt Park Beer Garden cleared its final hurdle on Tuesday, June 24th -- and is now scheduled to open Monday, June 30th.

The Milwaukee Common Council approved the liquor license application for St. Francis Brewery Tuesday. The beer garden already had won a contract from the Milwaukee County Parks Department.

"After months of planning and hard work I'm happy the idea of a Humboldt Park Beer Garden is now a reality," Supervisor Haas said. "I would like to thank everyone involved, especially the neighbors, for their help in this process."

The Beer Garden will operate on the west side of the Humboldt Park Pavilion. It will be open weekdays from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and weekends from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The beer garden will not be open on July 4th. It will close for the season October 12th.

"I think this project will have a positive impact on the park, the neighborhood and all of Bay View," Supervisor Haas said. "I have worked with neighbors and the Humboldt Park Watch throughout this process, and will continue that work after the beer garden is open to make sure this enhances everyone's enjoyment of the park."
