Half Full Brewery and Mill River Park Collaborative announced today the launch of the Half Full Winter Beer Garden in Stamford, Conn.’s Mill River Park. The two week pop-up, intended to celebrate and unite local residents, businesses and entrepreneurs, opens next Friday, December 7th. The Half Full Winter Beer Garden coincides with Mill River Park Collaborative’s Holiday Market and “Winter Wonderland” programming in and around the newly opened Steven & Alexandra Cohen Skating Center.
The Half Full Winter Beer Garden will be located in Mill River Park opposite the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Skating Center, and will feature an enclosed bar serving Half Full beer, cider and wine with a festive “après-skate” inspired lounge in 2,500 square feet of space. Furniture and decorative pieces for the custom space were provided by three local and long-standing Stamford businesses: LoveSac, United House Wrecking and Second Chance by Junkluggers.
The Half Full Winter Beer Garden will be open to the public Fridays from 4 to 9 p.m. ET, Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m ET, and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET. The Winter Beer Garden will also host several entrepreneur- and community-focused gatherings during public and non-public hours.
