Stein & Dine
The Shepherd Express has lined up dozens of craft brewers and artisanal cheese and sausage makers for its inaugural Stein & Dine Beer, Cheese and Sausage Festival, a massive tasting event at the Wisconsin State Fair Park Expo Center. It’s a chance to sample unique cheeses like tandoori Gouda and new brews like Chick Beer, a low-calorie beer created with women in mind, as well as all the premium, locally made sausage your belly can hold. General admission is $35 in advance, $40 at the door, while VIP admission ($70 in advance, $75 at the door) includes entry into the event one hour earlier than general admission, opportunity to speak with brewers, cheese artisans and sausage makers one-on-one, a commemorative Stein & Dine T-shirt and admission to the VIP lounge area.
