15th Annual Ice Cold Beerfest Submitted: 01/12/2013
Minocqua - Northwoods Beer connoisseurs flocked to Minocqua this afternoon for a deal you can't beat. All you can drink beer from 1 to 5 at the 15th annual Ice Cold Beerfest. Minocqua's Campanile Center filled up quick, and people's mugs stayed full for 35-dollars. It was a great opportunity for local breweries looking to show off their best draft choices. "We're in the first hour right now and there's already more people than last year. We're expecting a record year. "Said Minocqua Breweries Brewmaster, Ryan White. "We don't get a lot of events this time of year, and the nice thing about it, is it breaks up winter. It gets us out of the brew house and gives us a chance to connect with people." Red Eye's Head Brewer Kevin Eichelberger mentioned. Visitors said the beer was great, but a certain event in San Francisco may have influenced some Packers fans to keep it low key. "We'll I think everybody else will be pacing themselves and waiting and enjoying a little more beer during the game. But it's indoor tailgating in Minocqua." Beerfest aimed to raise 5-thousand dollars to benefit local non-profit organizations.
