MILWAUKEE BREWFEST 2020 CANCELLED
To our Milwaukee Brewfest Craft Beer Lovers,
It is with profound regret and disappointment that we write today to share that we have made the
difficult decision to cancel Milwaukee Brewfest 2020. We have worked tirelessly over the past two
months to reconfigure the grounds for increased social distancing and to put in place policies that would
increase the safety of all attendees, brewery representatives, volunteers, and staff. We were hopeful
that we would be able to hold the event safely, and that it would still be enjoyable for all who attend.
We found out today that ALL Special Event permits in the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County
Parks have been suspended through September. Unfortunately, the current health crisis in the county
makes this a tough but necessary decision. We will miss the familiar faces of the guests and breweries
who have joined us for the last 10 years and we are sad for any new guest who will not be able to enjoy
the best craft beer event in the area. All tickets purchased for 2020 will be valid for Milwaukee Brewfest
We look forward to seeing you next year. Mark your calendar for July 31 st, 2021. Until then, cheers to
next year and the love for craft beer! Stay healthy!
Bill Hoag – Brewfest Director
