Beer & Seltzer Crawl

Friday, August 16, 2024, 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

During the Beer & Seltzer Crawl, Fond du Lac’s downtown businesses become “tasting rooms” where attendees may sample different beer, seltzer or non-alcoholic beverages. Stroll from business to business exploring what downtown has to offer and shop while you sip from your souvenir glass.

Visit each location to sample something new from the numerous options available at different businesses throughout Downtown Fond du Lac. You’re sure to find something you enjoy.

Choose your ticket based on your tasting preferences:

Beer Ticket – $20

Have you always stuck to the same type of beer while out with friends? Try something new! With your Beer Ticket, you will be able to try a variety of Lagers, Ambers, Stouts, Pilsners, and IPAs. Maybe you will find your new favorite!

Seltzer Ticket – $20

Have you jumped on the seltzer bandwagon? With your Seltzer Ticket, you will be able to try a whole new selection of locally crafted seltzers! Why stick with the same old seltzer when there are so many varieties to choose from?
