(Madison, WI): The Biergarten at Olbrich Park opened in 2017, alongside Rutabaga Paddlesports, in an agreement with the City of Madison to bring new activities and attract more people to Madison’s expansive Olbrich Park. It has since become an iconic Madison hot-spot in the summer months. 

You can make it a date night, a night with friends – or take the family and let the kids enjoy it, too!

The Biergarten offers a beautiful view of the downtown skyline over Lake Monona and is a great place to gather with friends and family – all around with a cold drink in your hand. 

Food & Drinks

They serve all Wisconsin craft beers and ciders and source their food from local farmers, butchers, bakers, and cheesemakers. You are welcome to bring your own picnic lunches or dinners to the biergarten as well!
