Nothing says summer like a cold beer on a hot day. Enjoy an award-winning brew and a cool breeze at Middleton’s Capital Brewery outdoor Bier Garten! Add in free live music from a wide variety of local bands and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a summer evening. Here’s a look at what Capital Brewery’s Bier Garten offers, including a list of bands you won’t want to miss this season.
Cold drinks, hot music
At any given time, you’ll find around a dozen award-winning Capital Brewery beers flowing freely from the Bier Garten taps. Choose from a summer special like the Lake House golden lager, or a Capital classic like their Wisconsin Amber or Mutiny IPA.
Although the Bier Garten is a popular spot, you’ll never have to wait in a long line for your favorite brew. And come hungry! There are often food carts on site with everything from barbecue and soul food to pizza and pork belly. Grab a spot at one of the dozens of picnic tables and settle in for a good meal and a great performance.
There’s plenty of bike parking, and dogs are welcome every day except Fridays (and during certain special events).
