For more than 55 years, Milwaukee has been the home of “The World’s Largest Music Festival.” Since last September, the city has also been the site of “The World’s Smallest Beer Festival (Probably).” The latter event is actually called Jones Island Fest, a lighthearted happening hosted by Torzala Brewing Company that will return to Milwaukee’s smallest and most secluded park for a second installment on Saturday, September 23.

From noon to 6 p.m. that day, the young and very good Bay View brewery will take over all 0.15 acres (or 610 square meters) of Kaszube’s Park for a day of beer, food, fun, and the promise of “shenanigans.” Among the Torzala brews on hand for the “island”—even though Jones Island is no longer an island, but more of an industrialized peninsula—affair will be its tasty Jones Island Polish Pale Ale.

Stay tuned for more information as the second annual Jones Island Fest approaches. In the meantime, save the date and get ready for big time fun in Milwaukee’s tiniest and weirdest parcel of public land.
