Fourth Annual Kenosha Craft Beer Week

Fourth year and a third brewery!

Kenosha is once again recognizing all things craft beer for an entire week this May! This fourth annual Kenosha Craft Beer Week is an exciting opportunity to celebrate the entire craft beer community in our area.

Through small breweries, bars, restaurants and retailers, craft beer makes a positive difference in Kenosha. Where you find craft beer you'll also find entertainment and culture, revitalization, development and most importantly, people who support local businesses. Help us embrace the independent spirit at the heart of Kenosha's small businesses by participating in this year's Kenosha Craft Beer Week events. Be sure to bring your friends and enjoy everything that our thriving craft beer community has to offer. Cheers!
