A new German-themed pop-up beer garden coming to Des Moines this September will give beer enthusiasts another local place to guzzle on brews and say cheers. 

The Orvis Horatio Group, the local ownership group behind Dough Co. Pizza, is partnering with Water Works Park Foundation on the pop-up concept Des Moines Biergarten at the park.

The Biergarten will be located at the tree canopy, off the city's bike trail, near the Lauridsen Amphitheater every Thursday through Sunday from Sept. 1 to Oct. 30.

German and local craft beers will be offered in large stein glasses alongside menu options like brats, hot dogs, and pretzels. The family-friendly pop-up series will feature live music and yard games.

The beer garden will be open from 2-10 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and noon to midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.
