John Longacre, owner of American Sardine Bar and South Philly Taproom, is transforming an empty lot at Point Breeze Avenue and Tasker Street to create a beer garden.

The beer garden will open on Thursday, May 14 and will remain open until September 7.

Throughout the summer you can expect to see plenty of beer and different food trucks at the Point Breeze garden.

The opening weekend of the beer garden will play host to the 10th annual Wheat Beer Festival on May 16. In addition to the selection of more than 35 beers at the event, Chef Scott Schroeder will be grilling and there will also be food trucks, live music and more to kick off the opening weekend.

Some of the proceeds from the pop-up garden will benefit Fair Food Philly.

The pop-up garden will be open Thursday through Sunday throughout the summer. Hours are from 4 p.m. through 10 p.m. on Thursday; 4 p.m. through 11 p.m. on Friday; 12 p.m. through 11 p.m. on Saturday; 12 p.m. through 10 p.m. on Sunday.
