Here's the schedule for the 2017 Traveling Beer Garden

It may be hard to imagine drinking a tasty, frosty beer in the middle of a park on a beautiful, sunny summer day when it's currently 30 degrees and occasionally flurrying, but thanks to Milwaukee County Parks and Sprecher Brewing Company, we can at least try!

The two recently announced the schedule of stops for this upcoming summer's Traveling Beer Garden tour, featuring two fire trucks-turned-suds slingers touring around several Milwaukee County Parks locations with Sprecher beer, sodas and other concessions in tow – with all the revenue collected going toward improving the county's parks.

Here's the schedule:
