Our goal is to be the premier festival for the craft brewer and craft beer drinker in the Great Lakes Region while raising funds for the internationally acclaimed Racine Kilties Drum & Bugle Corps.

The Great Lakes Brew Fest features unlimited sampling of more than 450 craft beers, ciders and hard sodas from nearly 100 brewers on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan. All attendees receive a souvenir tasting glass. Food served by local restaurants will be available for purchase. The festival also features live music, a homebrew island, and a new guest theme each year!

The Great Lakes Brew Fest also serves as the host of the Schooner Home Brew Championship.
