Tickets are on sale now for REAP Food Group’s 6th Annual Burgers & Brew event, taking place Saturday, June 1 from 3:30-7:30 p.m. at the Capital Brewery Bier Garten in Middleton.

Burgers & Brew is a celebration of three of Wisconsin’s favorite traditions: grilling out, enjoying craft beers, and supporting local farms.                         

Each $30 ticket entitles guests to three combos featuring a fabulous mini-burger paired with a five-ounce beer pour. Unique burgers, grilled onsite, will feature dynamite flavor combinations of locally raised meats, vegetables and cheese found only in Southern Wisconsin. Wash them down with local craft brews, served by brewery representatives and selected to complement each chef’s creation.

Growing since 2012, the burger/beer pairing will increase from 14 to 16 stations.

“This event is a blast,” said Buy Fresh Buy Local program manager, Theresa Feiner. “It’s an amazing opportunity for the community to see award-winning chefs, standing side-by-side with the farmers that raised the meat and vegetables being served to them. They’re getting a first-hand look at the relationships we work to facilitate year-round.”

“Cold beer, delicious burgers, live music, and the company of friends - all in the name of supporting local, sustainable agriculture,” she added. “Is there a better way to kick off the summer?”

All participating restaurants are partners of REAP Food Group’s Buy Fresh Buy Local program, a partnership of local farmers, chefs, and other food service providers working together to increase opportunities for diners to eat fresh, local, sustainably grown food.

 This year’s participating restaurants will be: Alchemy Cafe, Brasserie V, Bunky’s Cafe, Captain Bill’s, The Coopers Tavern, Dayton Street Grille, Fit Fresh Cuisine, Fresco, Gates & Brovi, Graze, Lombardino’s, Merchant, Metcalfe’s Market, Monty’s Blue Plate Diner, Vintage Brewing Company, and Willy Street Co-op.

Participating Wisconsin breweries include: 3 Sheeps, Furthermore, Capital, Grumpy Troll, Hinterland, House of Brews, Hydro Street, Lake Louie, One Barrel, New Glarus, Pearl Street, Potosi, Rush River, Sand Creek, Tyranena, and Vintage.

Bloom Bake Shop of Middleton will be on hand with a sweet selection of treats for dessert. Tickets for desserts or additional short beer pours will be available at the event. Tap your feet to musical guests The Whiskey Farm, Sparetime Bluegrass Band, and Stompin’ Radishes.
