We told you we had exciting news about this year’s Ride for Nature coming for you – and we weren’t lying.
We’re excited to tell you that the first ever Door County Beer Festival will be held in conjunction with this year’s Ride for Nature! The festival, featuring more than 120 of the finest craft beers in the country, with a special focus on Wisconsin micro-brews, will be held at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall Park near the finish line of the Ride for Nature.
“It’s called a beer festival,” says founder John McMahon, “but this is about a lot more than beer. We’ll have several local vendors serving all locally sourced food. We have at least five educational seminars planned featuring representatives from O’so Brewery, Capital Brewery, local chefs and cheese experts. And of course, we’ll have great live music.”
In addition, Kyle Cherek, host of the popular television show Wisconsin Foodie, will be at the festival to talk about the show and his culinary adventures across the state.
“When John told me about this, I jumped at the opportunity,” Cherek said. “I love Door County. I love beer. It crosses socio-economic demographics so it engages so many people.”
Tickets for the festival will be available soon, and Ride for Nature participants will receive a $10 discount on admission to the festival.
