The Milwaukee Public Market may have coined a new phrase for beer lovers: the beer patio.

The public market at 400 N. Water St. will open a beer patio on its sidewalk space along St. Paul Avenue this summer; no opening date has been set yet, but a grand opening is planned. The beer patio will be a partnership with Shorewood beer bar Draft & Vessel, which will provide the servers and the "tap truck" for beer.

The patio will feature a 1941 Ford pickup truck with eight draft lines with local craft beers that are not on tap inside the public market. The market's executive director Paul Schwartz calls the truck "Instagrammable." 

Other beverage choices will include a custom craft cocktail from Twisted Path Distillery and a few non-alcoholic drinks, such as Wisconsin-made kombucha and root beer.

The beer patio will be open Thursday through Sunday through the summer. The seating area will be open to the general public during the market's regular hours, which are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Hours and a formal name for the beer patio have not been announced.
