We all know that the month of October has many associations: breast cancer awareness, changing fall colors, Halloween and pumpkin-flavored everything. There is one more association that is missing from the list, and it’s a big one – beer.
Each year, Oktoberfest takes place in Munich, Germany. The celebration is the world’s largest beef festival that begins on the third Saturday of September. The event attracts approximately six million people from all over the world.
Since we can’t all swing a trip to Germany for a 16-day adventure, we have our beer celebration. Wisconsin has Oktoberfest celebrations in Appleton, Germantown, La Crosse, Lake Geneva, Madison and New Glarus. Although the official Oktoberfests have come and gone, the celebration of beer continues this weekend in Milwaukee at the Wisconsin Craft Beer Festival.
On Saturday and Sunday, people from all over the state will come together with the best beer and breweries at the Harley-Davidson Museum®. The festival will not only feature beer tasting from over 50 breweries, but there will also be classes if you are interested in learning more about homebrewing from world-renowned experts.
If you’re still looking for a way to fill up your weekend, this might be a great opportunity for all you beer lovers out there. Take a trip to the “Beer Capital of the World”. Tickets are still available.
From all of us at Lions Pride, have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
