The Great Taste is the second longest-running craft beer festival in North America. Every year over 190 breweries and brewpubs serve about 1400 different beers in a beautiful lakeside setting in Madison, Wisconsin.

With a view of the state capitol, great local food vendors, and acoustic music throughout the park, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to explore the finest beers the Midwest has to offer

We limit ticket sales to a reasonable figure so you aren’t standing in line all day for beer

The brewers themselves usually to attend and pour, so you have a chance to talk to the people who brewed the beer, rather than someone who may not know what he or she is serving.
