15th Annual Ice Cold Beerfest Submitted: 01/12/2013
Story By Ryan Abney


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.
