Celebrating all things craft beer in Kenosha!

5 Years of KCBW!


Kenosha Craft Beer Week is right around the corner! This fifth year is an amazing opportunity to highlight the craft beer community in and around Kenosha. Through small breweries, bars, restaurants, beer gardens and retailers, craft beer makes a positive difference in Kenosha. Where you find craft beer you'll also find entertainment and culture, revitalization, development and most importantly, people who support local businesses.

Join us in embracing the independent spirit at the heart of Kenosha's small businesses by participating in this year's Kenosha Craft Beer Week events. Be sure to bring your friends and enjoy everything that our thriving craft beer community has to offer. Cheers!

Check back often as more events are announced and added!
