The Beer and Cheese Thing!

Join us in the beautiful outdoor courtyard of The Oxbow Hotel and enjoy this crafty and artisanal outdoor celebration of Wisconsin's perfect pair! It's Eau Claire's first festival combining two of our greatest loves – cheese and beer! Eat & drink unlimited samples of the highest quality craft brews and award-winning artisan cheeses and go home with a free commemorative sampling glass.  Listen to the eclectic, old world European music of Klezmazel while lounging around the patio fire slabs or tables, or playing yard games like Kubb, bean bags, and more. Meet regional brewers and cheesemakers while learning about their crafts in person and during expert talks you can attend as part of the event.

Stay later for an optional 5-course beer & cheese pairing meal at 6pm with brewing and cheesemaking experts (additional $50 ticket required, call 715-839-0601 to reserve). Or take off Monday and stay the entire night by getting a room at the hotel and enjoying half price taps from 9pm-11pm that evening!
