4 years of celebrating Craft Beer in the Kenosha Area
3 local breweries participating in the festivities
2 “block parties” to explore
1 week of great beer, food, and culture!
You don’t have to love beer to participate in Kenosha Craft Beer Week. From food trucks and games, to bike rides and block parties – Kenosha Craft Beer Week offers something for everyone. There will be pairing events, educational events, and even a “hangover cure” event! You just may learn to love beer during Kenosha Craft Beer Week.
Let’s be clear. Craft beer isn’t about getting drunk, though. Through small breweries, bars, restaurants, and retailers, craft beer makes a positive difference in Kenosha – and around the world. It’s about conversation and camaraderie. Entertainment, culture, history – these are all part of what craft beer is all about. In turn, these elements are all part of Craft Beer Week. And while all the week’s events aren’t happening in Downtown Kenosha, a great deal of them are. Here is just a sampling of some of the events happening in #DowntownKtown during the week…
