Between the Bluffs Beer Wine Cheese FestivalThe annual Between the Bluffs Beer Wine & Cheese Festival is celebrating 17 years in 2019. Join them for a tasting of over 200 quality beers poured by over 35 breweries. Experience over 45 types of wine, sample and purchase gourmet cheeses, all while enjoying live music. Don’t forget to sign-up for the Coulee Region Cornhole Tournament and play some Hammer-Schlagen.

It all begins Friday evening, April 26th, with Friday Night: Taster’s Eve, where you can buy a wristband and ride the shuttles to various participating establishments for specials and tap take-overs by guest breweries attending the fest.

The main festival takes place at La Crosse’s Southside Oktoberfest Grounds on Saturday afternoon, April 28th, with general admission ($50) from 2-6pm. VIP tickets ($90) allow for a noon entry. Details on what you get with each are below!

But that’s not all…
