Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele included $50,00 to expand South Shore Terrace, an outdoor beer garden and eatery at South Shore Park in Bay View, in his proposed 2020 budget. 

“If you like the South Shore Terrace now, you will love this expansion which will bring even more revenue to our county and continue to keep South Shore a regional asset for all to enjoy,” said County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic, a longtime advocate for the decade-long revitalization of South Shore Park. 

She said the expansion would double the size of South Shore Terrace and remodel and reopen the pavilion’s northern portion, which is currently used for storage. 

The project addresses the last area of South Shore Park that has not been improved during Dimitrijevic’s tenure.

“South Shore Terrace is not only a great showcase of Milwaukee County’s outstanding craft beer scene, it’s also become a wonderful way to try out a new neighborhood and spend time with friends after a long week,” said Abele. “Supervisor Dimitrijevic and I are thrilled to announce the expansion on South Shore and can’t wait to get back out next summer to try even more stouts, ales, IPAs and everything else our local brewers are brewing.”

Abele presented his 2020 recommended budget to the county board on Tuesday.
