Pabst Milwaukee Brewery hosting 1-year anniversary festival
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom will host a 1 year anniversary Pabst Street Festival on May 19. Last year’s inaugural event marked the grand opening of the microbrewery and taproom which was attended by over 7,000 people.
This year’s event will run from noon to 7 p.m. on Juneau Avenue between 10th and 11th streets and will feature outdoor performances from a variety of musical acts. The festival will feature a marketplace of local artists and artisans, along with local food trucks and Pabst Milwaukee Brewery beer.
Admission to the event is free or a donation to the brewery district.
New this year, The Get Down afterparty will take place inside the Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom starting at 9 p.m. This popular Milwaukee funk and soul dance party will keep the celebration going inside the 145-year old church turned brewery space.
“Building on last year’s success, we are excited to once again kick off the summer with music, local artists and new Pabst seasonal and craft brews,” says Pabst Milwaukee Brewery and Taproom General Manager Adam Powers. “Adding the ‘Get Down’ afterparty makes this a perfect way to celebrate the start of Milwaukee festival season.”
A limited-edition craft beer, brewed on Captain Pabst’s birthday by Pabst Master Brewer Greg Deuhs and Senior Staff Brewer John Kimes, will also be released at the street festival to commemorate the 1-year anniversary of Pabst’s return to Milwaukee.
