The 16th Annual Dairy State Cheese & Beer Festival returns to the legendary Brat Stop in Kenosha on Saturday, April 13th! This fun-filled event features a variety of Wisconsin cheeses, some of the most sought after beers from Wisconsin and beyond and awesome live music!. This is a “don’t miss event” for anybody who likes beer, cheese and music!

The festival typically draws over 900 attendees and features over 100 different styles of beer, a home brew competition, local breweries, live music and of course, unlimited beer and cheese samples. Boys & Toys will headline the event and play in the Parkway Chateau, adjacent to the Brat Stop.

The Dairy State Cheese & Beer Festival has a rather extensive VIP ticket package. For $80 in advance or $85 at the door, VIP fest goers receive a lunch buffet courtesy of Festival Foods, specialty cheese and beers, a VIP beer stein and an extra hour of festing! The food buffet is available for the duration of the fest from noon until 5 p.m.

General admission tickets are $55 in advance and $60 at the door. All tickets include a commemorative glass, live music and four hours of unlimited beer and cheese samples. Designated driver tickets are $15. This is a 21+ only event.

Last time we checked over 50 different brewers will be there, with everything from Miller, Point, and Lakefront to Schell’s, Bell’s, Toppling Goliath, Bare Bones, Alaskan, and more – plus three local home brew societies. They’ll be pouring samples and providing info about their beers and brewing processes. Of course, great food – including brats – will be part of the sustenance and bands will be playing to serenade your eating, drinking, talking, and enjoying.

Proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Kenosha. Check the Dairy State Cheese & Beer Festival Website for tickets, continued updates, and other details!

You’ll find the Brat Stop right along Highway 50, just west of the I-41/94 interchange. It’s a Wisconsin staple, after all.
