Here’s your guide to Milwaukee Beer Week 2017

It can be hard to keep track of your schedule during Milwaukee Beer Week, but there are definitely a few highlights that craft beer fans won’t want to miss.

Milwaukee Beer Week starts on Saturday, April 22. The list of events each year is impressive and gives local craft beer aficionados a chance to try plenty of amazing brews. The schedule can be daunting, so download the app to help manage your calendar. Be sure to pay your local breweries a visit, and remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint, so don’t overdo it early in the week.

I’ve picked out a few can’t-miss items that are just the tip of the iceberg. Don’t limit yourself to these, there are plenty more great events that I just don’t have room for.
