To some beer lovers, Milwauktoberfest may have gone unnoticed thus far as it’s a much more intimate approach to a beer tasting. It’s also being held within Made in Milwaukee which is presented by Milwaukee Magazine. Milwauktoberfest is a beer tasting portion of the festivities and is limited to 300 tickets.
The whole Made in Milwaukee event is a celebration of Milwaukee music, art, fashion, film, and culture and is also a non-profit organization which exists to highlight and enrich the culture of Milwaukee by creating a platform for artists and local business to interact and interface with the community in an open, free and public setting.
The beer tasting portion of Made in Milwaukee is sponsored by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Wine and Dine, Alterra Coffee and The Bomb Shelter and will be taking place on from 3 – 5:30 p.m. on September 4th at Cathedral Square Park in Milwaukee. This is where Milwaukee Firkin Fest was held along with festivities for Bastille Days and the ongoing summer event, Jazz In The Park.
Come out and sample craft brewed beers from 12 Wisconsin breweries including Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee Brewing Co., Stonefly, Sprecher, O’so, Hinterland, Potosi, Sand Creek, Furthermore, Brenner Brewing Co., and more…Admission is $15 in advance and $20 the day of. $2 of each ticket will go to the Hope House.

On top of the beer sampling, there will be plenty more to do at Made in Milwaukee. From food vendors to a Coffee sampling of local roasters (from 10am – 1pm) to live music all day and a dance and fashion show at the end, Made in Milwaukee features much more than Milwauktoberfest!
