About the Franksville Craft Beer Garden
The Franksville Craft Beer Garden is an exciting community gathering spot in Franksville Memorial Park. As Racine County's first permanent Craft Beer Garden, the beer garden adds to the historic legacy of the park, which has been a community gathering place since some of the area's first settlers in 1832. The FCBG serves a rotation of more than 22 Wisconsin craft beers on tap along with cider and wine, in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. The beer garden has its own playground and sandbox, and plenty of green space. You'll find yard games, board games, music, and lively conversation every day. Visit their website for more information.
In 2022, FCBG received The Journal Times Best of Racine County awards for Best Event, Best Customer Service, Best Beer List, Best Free Entertainment, Best Happy Hour, Best Family Fun, and Best Live Music.
