Junk Ditch Brewing Company is doing a Pilsner: a refreshing German style beer, with a floral and herbal hop finish.

LaOtto Brewing Company is doing a Dortmunder: a pale pilsner-like lager that is slightly malty with a clean finish.

Mad Anthony Brewing Company is doing a Hefeweizen: a classic German wheat beer.

Chapman’s Brewing Company hosted the remaining 12 breweries to create ‘Trail Schwarzbier’: This slightly roasted dark lager ‘black beer’ is named in honor of the Northern Indiana Beer Trail.

These local beers pair well with Germanfest’s locally made German Potato Salad (Sport Club), Sauerkraut (Maennerchor Damenchor), and Kuchen (Turners).

Join us Wednesday June 5th at 5pm at Headwaters Pavilion for $5 pints of locally crafted German style beers!
