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.


New Brews to Go for Summer 2021!

On August 14, we’ve got just what you need to enjoy your own beer garden at home with family and friends. Our Beer Garden in a Box and root beer packages are SOLD OUT but you can still order a kit with two souvenir pint glasses and your choice of “Ale Mary” or “Our Lager” beers.

Beer Kit Option: Priced at $40, your kit includes:

  • Six 12-ounce bottles with your choice of “Ale Mary” or “Our Lager” beers from Lakefront Brewery beers! See full details on your beverage options below. (That’s even more tasty beverages than last year’s growlers!)
  • Two commemorative 2021 Sister Water Beer Garden pint glasses

Two NEW Delicious Beverage Options

We’ve got all new brews available this summer from our friends at Milwaukee’s very own Lakefront Brewery!


  • “Ale Mary” – NEW this year: This year’s ale is a full-bodied India Pale Ale (IPA) with a nice hoppy bite and agreeable, malty flavor.
  • “Our Lager” – NEW this year: Premium, American-grown Pilsner malt gives this craft lager its light-gold color and clean, crisp finish.

If you choose the beer option, a carton of six (6) fresh and tasty 12-ounce bottles is included in each Beer Kit. With your purchase, you may order additional six-pack cartons of beer for $20 each.


Pre-Pay Only for Your Safety and Convenience

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.
