Beer Fest is a charity event. People in Milwaukee tend to drink fast, so many of us can get our money's worth, lol.

Miller Park is in an isolated area. There's not much of anything around it. There are some bars on Bluemound Rd within a mile or so of Miller Park that cater to the before and after game crowd, but most Brewer fans tailgate in the parking lots. Many visitors to Milwaukee just head back downtown to the bars after games.

Do you mean Brew Fest - at the lakefront? I think the admission price is $40... which I would (and just may) gladly pay. It says there's over 200 beers there.

There is also the Firkin Craft Beer Fest, which is $45 advanced. I'd pay that, too.

^^What przyk said about Miller Park. Are you thinking of attending a game there?

The Milwaukee Brewfest keeps improving every year. This July will be the 4th year. If you are into beer, this will be a nice fest for you. Usually they include a ticket to Germanfest (which is the same weekend) with the beerfest ticket. Recommended.

We travel from Indianapolis to Milwaukee every year for the beer fest. It does improve each year. It isn't the only reason we visit Milwaukee it's just the reason we visit on that particular weekend.
