First Door County Beer Festival June 16

Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin will host a celebration of craft beer and local food at the first Door County Beer Festival June 16. Staged on the warm shores of Lake Michigan, the Door County Beer Festival will feature tastings of more than 120 of the finest craft beers from Wisconsin and the world.

The festival, however, is about much more than great beer. Representatives from O’so, Hinterland, Founder’s, Rush River and Capital Brewery will be on hand for some of the 11 seminars about brewing, artisan cheese, homebrewing, beer and food pairing as well as local food sourcing.

Several of the peninsula’s best restaurants and local producers will be serving food sourced entirely in Wisconsin. Plus, Kyle Cherek, the host of the PBS television show Wisconsin Foodie, will give a special presentation about his show and the burgeoning Wisconsin culinary scene.

“There is so much more depth to Door County than people realize,” Cherek says. “It is like so much of Wisconsin, where we get into a box. But just below the surface or around the corner is what’s really interesting about it.”

The festival will also feature the first Door County Homebrewing Championships and a full day of great live music, including Brooklyn’s Tumbling Bones, on the grounds of the historic Baileys Harbor Town Hall.

It’s all part of a complete weekend on the peninsula that includes the Ride for Nature, a 100-mile bicycle ride along the peninsula’s scenic back roads.

The day culminates with the Fyr Bal Festival, a cultural celebration that includes bonfires and fireworks over Ephraim’s Eagle Harbor.

Only 2,000 tickets will be sold for this event that has the Wisconsin beer community buzzing. To find out more visit or contact our founder, John McMahon, at 920.312.3461.
