Breweries & Wineries

Here in Wisconsin, there are few things we love more than getting together with friends and family over a cold beer. Fortunately, in Racine County, there are plenty of beer and wine opportunities to be found at seasonal beer gardens, craft breweries, wineries, distilleries, and special events.

 

Beer Gardens

 

FCBG Food Truck Festival
Franksville Craft Beer Garden

The Franksville Craft Beer Garden is a community gathering spot in Franksville Memorial Park, 9614 Northwestern Ave., Franksville. Open on weekends from May to October, the garden offers 22 craft and specialty brews made in Wisconsin. You'll find yard games, a playground, sand box, and lively conversation at the picnic tables under ample shade trees. This gathering place also offers events and activities throughout the summer such as food trucks, live music, movie nights, yoga classes, and more.

Also watch for a pop-up beer garden in the Union Grove park system coming summer 2022!

 

Breweries

 

Runaway Brewery
The Runaway Nanopub & Microbrewery

Located in an historic downtown Racine building a few blocks from Lake Michigan is Littleport Brewing Company, 214 3rd St., Racine. Littleport has 21 beers on tap that include a variety of local craft IPAs, stouts, lagers, and more. Milwaukee Pretzel Company baked pretzels and stone-fired Brew Pub Lottza Mozza pizzas are also available.

You'll find an eclectic vibe at 1 of Us Brewing, 8100 Washington Ave., Mount Pleasant. Founded by a group of 10 friends, this quirky craft brewery opened in 2021 and is named for the Todd Browning movie, "Freaks." With both an outdoor beer garden as well as an indoor taproom, 1 of Us Brewing focuses on sessionable ales that offer a bold character profile. From the assortment of mismatched furniture and cartoonish monster art wall to the feather bowling lane (a mix of bocce ball, bowling and curling originating in Belgium), you're promised a memorable experience.

In the heart of downtown Burlington is The Runaway Nanopub & Microbrewery, 109 E. Chestnut St., Burlington, the first brewery in more than 65 years to be established in the city. This single-room micropub and nanobrewery serves handcrafted, small-batch beer and delivers Burlington foodie favorites like Fred’s World-Famous Burgers right to your table.

Just around the corner from The Runaway is the Low Daily Taproom, located in the former Burlington Standard-Press building, 700 N. Pine St., Burlington. The space includes a large beer garden that looks out onto Echo Lake and an interior that welcomes you to a cozy, but modern vibe.

Coming late 2023 is MobCraft Beer, 122 N. 2nd St., Waterford. Located along the Fox River, the facility will include an indoor and outdoor bar, a full kitchen, a 3.5-barrel brewhouse, dining room, and 1,500-square-foot events space.
