It is a great time for beer drinkers in Wisconsin to get out and sample new beers. This week there is a new Beer festival that will be in Milwaukee on Saturday. They are having over 40 breweries having their products sampled. It looks to be a great event so check it out if you are at all interested in beer.
Next week the Wisconsin State Fair kicks off and there will be numerous opportunities to sample State and regional beers at various stands throughout the grounds. I encourage everyone to try some of the new beers that will be availible this year.
In two weeks, Madison will host my favorite beer festival:The Great Taste of the Midwest. It is a hot ticket and if have the luck to score tickests, it is well worth the trip over. The festival is held at Olin Turville Park just south of the Capitol. It is a well set up festival with breweries both large and small from all over the Midwest sampling their wares.
Get out and enjoy the great weather and enjoy some of your favorite beers and try some new ones along the way and send me feedback on where you are enjoying beer and what you are having.
