Petrifying Springs Park Beer Garden set to open Memorial Day weekend
The grand opening of the Petrifying Springs Biergarten will be held at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 26th.
The Petrifying Springs Biergarten is located at Pavilion Shelter #1, located at the southern entrance (at County Highway JR) to the park, 5555 Seventh St., Kenosha. It will be operated by a vendor, Petrifying Springs Biergarten LLC, which has already made more than $130,000 in improvements to convert the picnic shelter into a traditional German-style Biergarten.
The vendor has a five-year lease agreement with the county to construct a German-style Biergarten, and sell German-style food, premium beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, and provide a variety of activities at and around Shelter #1. T
he addition of the Biergarten will also lead to creating a revenue source that will go toward park improvements.
“This offers people another opportunity to come together outside and to enjoy one of our beautiful parks,” County Executive Jim Kreuser said.
Mirroring successful Biergarten concepts in other communities, the Petrifying Springs Biergarten will offer indoor and outdoor seating, a menu of food and beverage options and weekly activities, including kickball leagues, Movie on the Mound, Poses & Pints yoga classes, and Pups and Pints dog owner networking.
