One of our favorite ways to indulge in what the best of life has to offer in the Midwest is spending a summer weekend at the beer garden. The Franksville Craft Beer Garden is a community gathering spot at the Caledonia-Mount Pleasant Memorial Park. Open on weekends from May into October, the beer garden offers 16 craft and specialty brews made in Wisconsin. You'll find yard games and lively conversation at the picnic tables under ample shade trees. This gathering space also offers events and activities throughout the summer such as food trucks, weekly live music, movie nights, yoga classes and more.
