MILWAUKEE -- Starting this spring, there will be another option for those in southeast Wisconsin who like to take their adult beverages on the go.

"PaddleTavern" is set to begin operating along the Milwaukee River in May. It's a spin on the "pedal tavern" concept, already popular in Milwaukee, which takes patrons around the city on a pedal-powered vehicle. The "PaddleTavern" is similar, except it's a pontoon and guests paddle instead of pedal.

The boat will use the Third Ward's The Harp Irish Pub as its main port of call. From there, it will travel down river, stopping at various locations along the way.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own beverages on the PaddleTavern. The pontoon boat fits 14 people. You can get more information on their Facebook page.
