The Sprecher Brewing Outdoor Oasis, at Richard E Maslowski Community Park, 2200 W. Bender Rd., in Glendale, will open Friday, June 5, at 4 p.m.

In addition to serving beer and soda the oasis will also offer hot dogs, brats, hamburgers, ice cream and other snacks.

The full menu is here.

Pints and Liter Steins will be available for purchase but due to COVID-19 guidelines, guests cannot bring their own glassware or steins.

At the moment, the plan is to keep the oasis open until Labor Day, but if the North Shore Health Department should order restaurants to close, the oasis would shut down.

It will be open Fridays from 4 until 9 p.m., Saturdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sundays, 11-6.

Cash and card payments are accepted.

While you're there, don't forget to try Sprecher's latest brew: ReFresh Button sessionable IPA.

Please remember to social distance. The pandemic is not over.

The park also has indoor restrooms, including a family bathroom, a large accessible playground, access to the Oak Leaf Trail and free parking.

Sprecher Brewery also recently reopened its gift shops and began again offering public tours.
