Appropriately for a warm-weather festival, Leinenkugel, famous for its Summer Shandy, sponsors the Top of the Hops Beer Festival bubbling over with 150 craft beers from 60 breweries around the world. The inaugural fest—on Saturday, May 12, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.—sends the melodious sounds of live music and flopping cornhole bags floating through the air as guests sip pours from Bell’s, New Glarus, Three Floyds, and Great Lakes, among international brews.
The brew university tent ushers hops lovers in throughout the day for sessions on cooking and pairing foods with beer or the basics of home brewing. Four convivial main beer gardens are supplemented by the Cask Garden, a shrine to cask-conditioned potions that are completely unfiltered and unpasteurized, changing their flavor profile over time as the live yeast does its work.<p>
