THE EVENT:

A tasting tour of Wisconsin brewed beers that takes place in a variety of establishments within beautiful Downtown and the Riverfront.

Appleton celebrates National Craft Beer Week each year with a traditional Craft Beer Walk through the beautiful downtown and riverfront! The event this Spring will be on Saturday, May 18 from 3-8 pm and will target eight establishments, grouped geographically, per each of the walks. A standard eight stop walk will feature a tasting of two delicious Wisconsin craft beers at each stop. 

You can pick your route from 4 different options and register either at your favorite watering hole or online. Tickets start at only $20/person (additional online processing fee of $2 covers the cost of processing your payment). Each ticket includes the two FREE brew samples at each venue on your walk, a commemorative Craft Beer Walk logo pint glass, and walk wristband (the pint glass and wristband are both required to receive samples at each stop). The commemorative pint glass for use that day is also to take home to remember the fun!  Buy your ticket at any of the participating locations STARTING MID-APRIL and follow the event on Facebook for updates. Or register online at Beerwalkwi.com thru Sunday, May 12.  Tickets are available while supplies last.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The Appleton Craft Beer Walk event is designed for both true beer aficionados and novice beer drinkers.  Information will be at each stop to educate participants about the styles and attributes of the beers they’re tasting.  Participants will stroll past unique shopping and dining places while walking from venue to venue. Event organizers noted participants should feel free to stop in or make dinner reservations at the local restaurants for after finishing the walk.

You don’t have to try all the free samples on your tour, but it may be hard to resist!  We invite you to just relax and enjoy a leisurely day, relishing some of the best of craft beers from across Wisconsin.  You may even wish to buy a pint of your new favorite brew and relax a little longer on your walk.
