Dane County's most popular chefs pair up with Wisconsin's talented brewers and farmers to serve unique, locally sourced burgers and satisfying Wisconsin craft brews. Each ticket is redeemable for three quarter-pound burgers and three short pours of beer. Tickets are $30 per person or $50 for a two-day pass. Tickets at the door are $35 if the event is not sold out. Online ticket sales will close at 3 p.m. on Saturday (for Saturday's event and two-day passes) and 11 a.m. on Sunday.
