8 kid-friendly beer gardens around Milwaukee


By definition, a biergarten is simply an open-air space where beer and food are served. But in reality, they are so much more than that. Popular in Bavaria and Germany, beer gardens are a festive place for people to get together and delight in good food, beer, and the outdoors. Many have popped up over the years around Milwaukee, and they are definitely family-friendly.
