Green Lake, Wis. (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
An estimated 130 craft beers from across Wisconsin will be available for tasting on Saturday, March 22 at Heidel House Resort & Spa. Thirty two Wisconsin breweries have confirmed for the third annual event, with the potential for more as the date draws nearer.
The lineup includes many familiar faces from previous years as well as several newcomers. James Paige Brewing Co. of Stevens Point, Stillmank Brewing Co. of Green Bay and Northwoods BrewPub of Eau Claire will be making their first appearance, offering samples such as James Paige’s Chai Tea Porter, Stilmank’s Wisco Disco and Northwoods’ Wall-IPA.
In addition to the microbrews, Vines & Rushes Winery of Ripon will offer tastings of their local wines from Wisconsin grown grapes. Vines & Rushes' wines are an expression of the soil, climate, farming and winemaking practices that provide a sense of place to each wine. Ciderboys Cider Co. of Stevens Point will also offer a sweeter alternative to beer with their refreshing hard ciders with hints of apple, strawberry, raspberry and peach.
All breweries in attendance will be competing for the title of the 2014 People’s Choice. Each guest will have the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite beer of the evening. The winner will be on tap at Heidel House Resort for the 2014 summer season. Door County Cherry Wheat from Shipwrecked Brewery of Egg Harbor was awarded the 2013 People’s Choice. Door County Cherry Wheat is a crisp, medium bodied beer made with wheat, barley, and juice from fresh Door County cherries for a unique fruit flavor. It will again be available at this year’s event.
A souvenir tasting glass, appetizers, live entertainment from Dan Braaksma Band and unlimited sampling from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m. are all included in the $35 ticket price. Brew Fest 2014 will take place in Heidel House Resort’s lake view ballroom, Sandstone and Lower BoatHouse. Guests must be 21 or older to attend.
Because tickets are selling fast and last year’s event sold out, advance ticket purchase is recommended. Please call 800-444-2812.
