Craftoberfest, presented by Festival Foods, is back!  We had such an awesome party last year, we can’t wait for this year!  Craftoberfest is an unlimited beverage sampling event for anyone that loves craft beverages. We’ll have over 200 craft beers, plus lots of spirits, wines, ciders, and more!  We also have a ton of fun activities, so stay tuned! 

After selling out last year, a limited number of the popular First Call tickets will be available for those who want to get one-hour early access at 2 p.m. to sampling. First Call tickets include a full-size commemorative glass. Special pours from numerous breweries, special distilled spirts as well as specialty wines will be available for unique tasting experiences. First Call tickets are limited, so buy in advance.

Back this year: Top Shelf!  Enjoy an exclusive, Top Shelf experience on the Nicolet Bank Upper Level of the Resch Expo and entry is 1:30 p.m. Top Shelf attendees also get the First Call ticket included with their purchase. Guests will also sample top shelf beverage offerings and delicious appetizers! A private seating area with restrooms and balcony overlooking the event is included. These tickets are extremely limited, so act fast!
