Find the country’s best brews on tap at the Blue Harbor Craft Beer Festival – September 22, 2018

SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (May 21, 2018) – A group of the best local and regional breweries and cideries unite for the fifth annual Blue Harbor Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, September 22, 2018, along with the scenic shores of Lake Michigan at Blue Harbor Resort & Conference Center.

Co-hosted by Blue Harbor Resort and 3 Sheeps Brewing Company, the Blue Harbor Craft Beer Festival will bring the flavor that past attendees know and love with fresh additions. More than 30 of the country’s best breweries are ready to fill the festival tent and tap more than 100 beer and cider samples.

“As the number of breweries has grown tremendously in this country, the main goal of this festival has been to allow folks to try great examples of beer styles they otherwise wouldn’t have a chance to try,” said 3 Sheeps Brewing Company co-owner James Owen. “We also love featuring one of the most beautiful parts of our city.”
