The Wisconsin Beer Lovers Festival was held last Saturday at the Bayshore Town Center in Glendale. I went with my brother and his wife. It was hot and sunny (after rain on the drive up) and the all-Wisconsin brews were great. Every brewer was paired up with a restaurant or cheese maker, so there was plenty of free, delicious food as well. The fest lasted four hours and tickets bought online were about $48 including service fees.
