Drive-through beer garden, Milwaukee. Nuns raise money for charity


CLOSE

There’s only one Milwaukee beer garden pouring Ale Mary.

The Sisters of St. Francis are back serving beer as a fundraiser this year but with a coronavirus pandemic change: The beer garden is one-day only.

With respect to social distancing, it will be a drive-through event from 2 to 6 p.m. July 11.

Guests can pre-order a Beer Garden in a Box, which includes a 64-ounce growler with a choice of Sprecher beers or root beers along with two commemorative 2020 beer garden pint glasses, two 5-ounce take-and-bake soft pretzels and a jar of Sprecher gourmet spicy brown mustard. The box costs $50.

Beer choices include Ale Mary, a Hefe Weiss beer; Glory Be, a Vienna-style amber; Righteous root beer; and Half-Righteous Sprecher Lo-Cal root beer.

One  64-ounce growler will be included in each Beer Garden in a Box. With the purchase of a box, guests may order up to three additional growlers of beer or root beer for $20 each.

All orders must be reserved by July 10 at 3 p.m. for pickup the next day. St. Joseph Center is at the corner of Greenfield Avenue and Layton Boulevard; you enter the beer garden at 29th Street and Orchard Street.

To order, see the Sisters of St. Francis website.

Proceeds will support access to clean water at the sisters’ missions in Guatemala, Peru, India and Tanzania, including building new wells, safe water storage facilities, and filtration systems.
