Wisconsin Beer Lovers Festival
Tickets are now on sale for the fourth annual Wisconsin Beer Lovers Festival, to be held on Saturday, June 15, 2013 (Father’s Day weekend) from 1-5 p.m. at Bayshore Town Center. The festival is hosted by Welcome to Glendale, the City of Glendale’s CVB; the Wisconsin Brewer’s Guild (WBG) and DRAFT Magazine, and is the premier all-Wisconsin craft beer and tasting festival, featuring selections from 34 craft breweries throughout the state. Each of the participating breweries will be paired with local chefs, Wisconsin cheese manufacturers, or one of several brewpubs to create a unique tasting portion designed to complement a variety of unique beers available for sampling. “After three successful years, the fourth annual festival has become a necessary destination for Wisconsin craft breweries and beer lovers,” said Jeff Hamilton, president of Sprecher Brewery in Glendale and of the Wisconsin Brewer’s Guild. “Its unique atmosphere, unlimited sampling options and opportunities to meet with brew masters and chefs is perfectly situated in Glendale, with its added bonus of shopping, dining and entertainment options.” Festival tickets and hotel packages are available at www.WisconsinBeerLoversFest.com. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door, and include admission, a souvenir beer glass and unlimited sampling of beers and food pairings. Patrons must be 21 years of age or older to attend the event. Photo identification will be required at the admission entrance. Designated drivers and patrons under 21 years of age can purchase a “Food Lovers Ticket” for $20. For overnight guests staying in Glendale during the festival weekend, the Hilton Milwaukee River and Radisson Milwaukee North Shore are offering special packages featuring discounted stays, festival tickets, event shuttles and more. This year’s festival will also feature entertainment from the Brewhaus Polka Kings. The Wisconsin Brewer’s Guild is holding a “Best of Show” competition amongst the participating breweries for bragging rights to the “Glendale Cup”. Additionally, one lucky “Beer Lover” will win a wheelbarrow of beer, which will contain a collection of rare beers, special seasonal beers and popular favorites from participating breweries.
