June 18, 2016: Door County Beer Festival

Beer Festival logoGrowing each year, the Door County Beer Festival has become a Father’s Day weekend tradition for many! Held on the grounds of the Baileys Harbor Town Hall Park on June 18th, 2016, this is the 4th year of this great event offering samples of over 140 craft beers, locally sourced food for purchase, and live music by Mama Digdown’s Brass Band to keep you moving through the tents.  The festival celebrates the craft of beer-brewing, and Kyle Cherek, the host of Wisconsin Foodie, hosts a special VIP Beer Brunch the morning of the festival for VIP attendees. General Admission and Designated Driver tickets are also available online or at the gate – but we recommend getting them in advance! (Must be 21+ to enter festival grounds.) The Homebrew Contest returns this year as well, offering you the chance to showcase your own beer-brewing talents; please visit online for more Festival information and Homebrew registration.
