The Brewery Neighborhood Improvement District #1 to host first VinterSköl Musik Fest
First edition winter music festival set in amazing venues across the beautiful, historic Brewery District

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Jan. 22, 2020) – The Brewery District will celebrate the nearing end of winter with a first edition VinterSköl Musik Fest on Saturday, Feb. 15. Held in the beautiful, historic Brewery District, the Nordic-inspired winter celebration will showcase an impressive lineup of music, vendors, beer specials, tours and a variety of food options at several locations.

“Milwaukee is known as the ‘City of Festivals’ but there’s an absence of festivals in the dreary mid-winter,” said Erin Stenum, manager of The Brewery Neighborhood Improvement District No. 1. “We’re changing that with VinterSköl Musik Fest, giving attendees a reason to venture out into the cold for some of the best musicians Milwaukee has to offer.”

A ticket to the event will allow access to all of the District’s music venues for VinterSköl, including: Best Place at The Historic Pabst Brewery, Captain Pabst Pilot House (formerly Pabst Milwaukee Brewery & Taproom), Jackson’s Blue Ribbon Pub, Milwaukee Brewing Company, and Nō Studios. The impressive Milwaukee music lineup is below. Pre-party at the Captain Pabst Pilot House and Best Place at The Historic Pabst Brewery with free brewery and beer history tours beginning at noon and included with the purchase of each ticket.
