Creating A New Legacy
Since it’s 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.
Come for More than Just the 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. The Beer Garden also provides unique opportunities for being a part of the community, such as Beer Legs (walking and running club) or Beer Yoga at the Beer Garden.
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 one many local favorite food trucks taking up residence in the Beer Garden for the weekend, adding to the atmosphere.
