Doing the brew, Clearwater style.

Are you stuck in a beer rut and looking for something new, different, and maybe even local? Why not expand your beer palate at this year’s Clearwater Beer Fest? Perfect for any beer-loving Wisconsinite, this beer tasting extravaganza will feature more than 200 brews from 30+ different breweries including Sam Adams, Northwoods, Point, New Glarus, Lazy Monk, and Great Dane. Each brewer will be serving samples and answering questions throughout the entire event. Located at the Hobbs Sports Center in Altoona, the Clearwater Beer Festival will also include food, live music, and a homebrew competition. For anyone who wants to really experience everything each brewery has to offer, shuttles will be available to and from the event and all designated drivers get into the festival FREE. Sponsored by The Coffee Grounds, the Mighty Docs hockey team, Green Mill, and others, proceeds from the event will benefit the Altoona Rink Improvement Fund.
