Beer & Bourbon Crawl

Saturday, May 4,  1:00pm – 5:00pm

Make a toast to 150 years of the Kentucky Derby during Downtown Fond du Lac’s first annual Beer and Bourbon Crawl – part of
Downtown Derby Day!

During the Beer & Bourbon Crawl, Fond du Lac’s downtown businesses become “tasting rooms” where ticket holders can sample a variety of beers, bourbons, and non-alcoholic beverages. Each location will serve a unique mocktail recipe or N/A option, and a beer or bourbon selection, so you’re sure to find something for your whole group!

Dress to impress! Derby inspired attire is highly encouraged!

Glamourous, high-fashion threads have been a part of the Kentucky Derby experience since the very beginning, so put on your biggest, brightest and most glamourous threads and explore all that downtown Fond du Lac has to offer while you stroll from business to business, enjoying your beer and bourbon samples and taking advantage of great shopping specials and Derby themed activities.

Beer & Bourbon Ticket – $30

Try up to 12 samples of different beers and bourbons selected by our local experts. Which will be your favorite?

Mocktail Ticket – $20

Celebrating the running of the Kentucky Derby doesn’t have to include alcohol! Try various specialty mocktail recipes at each tasting room location instead!

All remaining tickets will be sold at the door until 2:00pm on May 4, 2024!
131 S. Main St., Suite 101, Fond du Lac, WI
