At the Taste

To our knowledge, the Great Taste of the Midwest is the second longest-running craft beer festival in North America.

With over 190 breweries and brewpubs on hand and more than 1000 different brews on tap, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the finest beers the Midwest has to offer, while also enjoying a view of the capitol, local food vendors, and acoustic music throughout the park. 

Gates open at 1:00 p.m. and the event ends at 6:00 p.m. There are NO onsite ticket sales.
