Sold-out Great Taste of the Midwest returns to Madison this weekend

MADISON, Wis. — Craft beer enthusiasts will head to Olin Park this weekend for the annual Great Taste of the Midwest.

Around 200 breweries and brewpubs will be at the event, which will also feature food vendors and live music, but unless you’ve already bought your ticket, you’re out of luck since the event sold out in May.

The sold-out crowd of 10,000 people proves how popular the event is since its humble beginnings 35 years ago.

“The Great Taste has gone from humble beginnings at the Italian Workman’s Club on Regent Street and we’ve grown into this big park at Olin-Turville Park,” Jason Walters said.

Ahead of the event, a number of smaller pop-up events as part of Great Taste Eve will be held on Friday. For more information, click here.
