Creating A New Legacy
Since its inception in the Summer of 2018, the Franksville Craft Beer Garden brings an exciting new community gathering spot to the Caledonia-Mount Pleasant Joint Memorial Park, more commonly known as “Franksville Park” by locals. The Franksville Craft Beer Garden has become a major feature of our culture in Wisconsin and Racine County. As Racine County's first permanent Craft Beer Garden, the beer garden adds to the historic legacy of the park, which has been a community gathering place since some of the area's first settlers in 1832. The Beer Garden is open for the season (May- October), every weekend from Thursday thru Sunday.
More Than Just Beer
With every pint on tap served comes an experience signature to the FCBG. The Beer Garden serves a rotation of craft beers from all over Wisconsin on its 16 tap lines, with new, fresh flavors sharing the menu with classic favorites. Every beer comes with a heavy dose of “Family. Community. Fun.” with a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, yard games, playgrounds, shade, and sports fields, for everyone to enjoy.
Make Room for Friends (and Food)
Monthly Food Truck Nights (sponsored by Real Racine) at the Beer Garden plays host to the best in local food trucks in the area, serving a variety of palates. The Beer Garden also serves up Fish Fry Nights, with the classic Wisconsin Fish Fry Dinner available on select nights. When there isn’t a special food event, you can usually find a local favorite food truck taking up residence in the Beer Garden for the weekend, adding to the atmosphere.
