BAY VIEW, Wis. -- As it always does, The Horny Goat Hideaway is going big. The popular brewing company whose brew pub is located at 2011 S 1st Street just south of downtown Milwaukee has begun construction on a huge outdoor entertainment complex that will bring concerts, volleyball and an outdoor bar to the city block it currently owns along the Kinnickinnic River. Add in boat slips, fire pits, the largest outdoor patio in Milwaukee and the six Horny Goat house brews and you have the making of a real party.
“Horny Goat is all about fun, friendship and of course, outstanding beer,” said Horny Goat Brewing Chief Executive Officer and Co-Owner Jim Sorenson. “Horny Goat knows that good beer is as fundamental to a great party as kicking music and cool people. This new complex will bring together all these elements to create an experience like no other in this town or the rest of the Midwest.”
The outdoor expansion will include four volleyball courts with group seating, corn hole pits, a 50-seat outdoor bar and a landscaped patio/boardwalk area designed by Rinka Chung Architecture of Milwaukee. Bret Radke, project director for Rinka Chung says the new outdoor covered bar will be the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful Milwaukee afternoon or evening throughout spring, summer and fall.
“The covered bar will have a modern industrial feel the reflects the feel of the surrounding neighborhood. Inside patrons will be able to enjoy an ice cold Horny Goat beer while sitting at the bar or nearby tables. Outside the covered bar will be an expanse of tables for dining and a river boardwalk featuring gas fed fire pits.”
“There will also be a raised platform on the western end of the patio for live entertainment. A minimum of 10 boat slips will be located along the boardwalk in the Kinnickinnic River which borders the property.”
The cost of the project is not being disclosed. Castle Rock Construction of Milwaukee will oversee the construction process. Volleyball courts will be completed by April 1 and the remainder of the project is anticipated to be complete by May 15.
The Horny Goat Hideaway opened to rave reviews last October. The smoke-free brew pub currently serves outstanding appetizers, burgers and brats, chili, salads, sandwiches and flatbread pizza. Food is available daily from 11 a.m. to midnight and the beer flowing until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The menu has more than 40 items including two vegan and 15 vegetarian. House brews include Exposed, Hopped Up ‘N Horny, Horny Blonde Lager, Red Vixen Vienna Lager, Stacked Milk Stout and Belgian Style Wheat.
