ABOUT US

The Door County Beer Festival is about good beer, good food, good music and good fun

Join us Saturday June 17, 2017 in Bailey’s Harbor on the shores of Lake Michigan to sample more than 150 craft beers from around the world, including the finest craft beers Wisconsin has to offer.

The Door County Beer Festival is about more than tasting, however.  Enjoy the best locally sourced food Door County has to offer from local restaurants and farmers. Listen to music all afternoon.

If you can’t have fun at the Door County Beer Festival, well, you just can’t have fun!

Dannhausen is the course director of the Door County Half Marathon and publicity director for Peninsula Pacers events.
