New Entrance Location: Pick Up Your Order at Sacred Heart Center

Due to construction, we’ve moved our pick-up location two blocks south to Sacred Heart Center (1545 S. Layton Blvd.) We’re still just two minutes from the Mitchell Park Domes. To enter the beer garden, take Lapham Street to 28th Street and turn north into the Sacred Heart parking lot. Our team will direct you so you can quickly and conveniently pick up your order.

Touch-Free Delivery for Your Convenience

Your entire order will be securely packaged and our team will place your Beer Garden in a Box into your vehicle so you can enjoy touch-free convenience.

Sorry We're Open

Musical Entertainment by “Sorry, We’re Open”

To complete your beer garden experience, we’re delighted to welcome “Sorry, We're Open,” an acoustic-based rock group predominantly influenced by the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and the Rolling Stones. They’ll be on site from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., performing their unique, high-energy arrangements of classic songs. You can sing along from the comfort of your car and, best of all, we’ll be streaming their entire live performance on our Facebook page so you can enjoy their music from home before and after your pick-up.

For more information about the group, including song samples, please visit their page on the Reverb nation website.

Why “Sister Water”?

The School Sisters of St. Francis are, as our name implies, an international congregation of Catholic women religious who follow in the footsteps of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi. We named our beer garden after “Sister Water,” from St. Francis' “Canticle of the Creatures,” in recognition of how precious clean water is to all.

In the spirit of Francis’ and Clare’s emphasis on hospitality and care for the earth, the proceeds from our beer garden will go to provide access to alternative clean energy, renewable bio-gas fuel, and pure water for people around the world who are served by our sisters’ ministries.

India Kids Drinking Water

Who Benefits?

Thousands of people served by our sisters around the world will benefit from the Sister Water Beer Garden fundraiser. Here are just a few examples:

  • Sisters in our formation house in Tanzania who otherwise would have to drink and bathe in water with dangerously high mineral content.
     
  • Sisters in remote rural areas of India who can use clean-burning bio-gas generators to produce convenient, inexpensive energy for convents, schools, and clinics.
     
  • Sisters and those they serve who can harness solar energy to light and cool classrooms and living spaces in scorching summer heat.
     
  • School children in India who receive clean water from our rain harvest and filtering system.
     
  • Families in Peru who receive clean water from our rain harvest and filtering system.
