MILWAUKEE - Today kicks off the final weekend for the Estabrook Park beer garden this year. 

The people who run the Milwaukee County Parks are giving half price beer to those who head to the "Bier Garten" this weekend. 

They're doing it to say "auf wiedersehen" to a year that Steven Schultz, the bier garden's general manager, calls special.

"Kind of our end of the season kickoff.  We had an absolutely terrific summer, great community support, and we went to (end) the year off right," said Schultz on TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Daybreak."

They will serve half-liter beers for $3 and full-liter beers for $5.50.

The Estabrook "Bier Garten" is open from noon until sundown Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Schultz explained that they may also have more of these beer gardens next year.

"They would like one ideally on the south side, as well as on the west or northwest side."
