The new Rail Park in Spring Garden has a new neighbor: Boxcar Beer Garden (1129 Callowhill St.), whose official opening is July 11.

It's the latest from FCM Hospitality, which runs the warm-weather outdoor destinations Parks on Tap and Morgan's Pier.

Boxcar Beer Garden is at 12th and Callowhill Streets, next to the Rail Park entrance.

Boxcar Beer Garden is at 12th and Callowhill Streets, next to the Rail Park entrance.

Boxcar Beer Garden, next to the Rail Park entrance at 12th and Callowhill, is a tailgate-style pop-up bar with a mobile food and beer truck. It has picnic-style seating for up to 200 people, twinkling lights, and backdrop of the "Stamp of Incarceration" mural on one side and the Rail Park on the other.

Chef Justin Koenig, also the chef at Parks on Tap, is offering a barbecue-style menu to pair with a rotating selection of beer and wine on draft. Bread is sourced by FCM partner Lost Bread Co.

In a partnership with Friends of the Rail Park, Boxcar will be donating a portion of the proceeds. Folks must sign up for a free membership for the Friends of the Rail Park to enter the beer garden. It's open from 5 to 10 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, 1 to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
