MILWAUKEE -- The Estabrook Beer Garden opened for the season on Thursday, May 4th.

Maifest celebrations kicked off around 5:30 p.m. with a keg tapping, and free beer offered for the first hour.

Visitors say the Estabrook Beer Garden is a great place for people to come together.

"I think people in the community own it, right? It's in a public place in a public park and it's theirs. That's what were doing here. We're creating a place for the people of Milwaukee to come together and be a community and I think that's why people love it," a visitor said.
