GREEN LAKE, Wis. – February 11, 2013 – Guests will now have even more microbrew flavors to taste on Saturday, March 23 at Heidel House Resort & Spa. 22 Wisconsin breweries have confirmed for the second annual event, with the potential for more as the date draws nearer. 

An estimated 100 craft beers from across the state will be available for sampling in Heidel House Resort’s beautiful lake view ballroom. Newly added to the lineup include the historic Saint Francis Brewing Co. of St. Francis and Potosi Brewing Co. of Potosi, as well as Furthermore Beer, headquartered in Spring Green but brewing at Sand Creek Brewing Co. in Black River Falls (who will also be present). Look forward to sampling a variety of beers from each including Furthermore’s Knot Stock Ale, Proper English Ale, Fatty Boombalatty Belgian and Oscura Coffee Lager.

A variety of sweeter options will also be offered such as flavors from the brand new Ciderboys Cider Co. of Stevens Point. These refreshing hard ciders feature crisp apple with hints of cranberry or cinnamon. Enjoy a refreshing summer classic with Sand Creek Hard Lemonade or New Glarus Brewing Co.’s Serendipity, known as the “Happy Accident Fruit Ale” and rated the top beer in Wisconsin by RateBeer.com.

All breweries in attendance will be competing for the title of the 2013 People’s Choice. Each guest will have the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite beer of the evening. The 2012 People’s Choice was awarded to Vanishing Vanilla Stout from Stone Cellar BrewPub of Appleton, while Door County Cherry Wheat from Shipwrecked Brewery of Egg Harbor was the runner-up. Both will return again to attempt to defend their titles.
