With temperatures expected to be downright summery outside this weekend, Milwaukee Country Parks has decided to get into the spirit as well and bring an early taste of summer to the city with a bonus Traveling Beer Garden stop.

On Saturday and Sunday, the popular Traveling Beer Garden truck – loaded up with 12 tasty Sprecher Brewing Company brews as well as several of the brand's signature sodas – will hit Whitnall Park from noon until 6 p.m. as a part of a special early "pop-up" event to celebrate the unseasonably spectacular weather. The bonus stop will also showcase live music from 1 to 4 p.m.

So get out there this weekend and celebrate an early taste of summer with an early visit from the Traveling Beer Garden. But, if for some reason you can't make it out to Whitnall Park for these two bonus days, the Traveling Beer Garden will be back out making its rounds – and serving up a few – this summer. Here's the schedule of stops for the suds-slinger's 2017 tour.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
