14th Annual Beer Barons' World of Beer Festival℠

By Beer Nuts, For Beer Nuts℠


Shuttle Buses

Parking at the festival location is limited, add to that the need for a designated driver and a shuttle service starts sounding like a great idea.

Shuttle buses will be available from around Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties at several locations to get you to the festival and back to your pick up point afterward. This will allow people to take the county bus system to the festival or get a ride to a convenient location and avoid driving. These are school buses to keep the cost down and give you flashbacks of your childhood on the ride home.

Check back before the festival in case times need to be adjusted. You have to ride the same route both ways.
