The event, hosted by the Wisconsin Technology Council, is open to people and groups who are a part of the state’s tech and innovation scene, as well as anyone who enjoys the best of summer in Wisconsin.  Walk-ins are welcome and will be accommodated until sold out.

“Brew, Bites & Bytes” will be held at the brewery’s outdoor Backyard Bar and will offer carnival games and a silent auction, with Wisconsin YES! designated as one of the beneficiaries.  Sector67, a non-profit collaborative space in Madison, will sell bracelets printed on-site using a special 3-D printer; all proceeds from bracelet sales will also benefit Wisconsin YES!  If there is inclement weather all festivities will be moved inside.

The event will feature classic rock music by the Grooving Needles, a local band made up of area “techies”. Locally sourced foods will be offered by Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Co., Slide and Curd Girl and a full selection of Wisconsin Brewing Co. beverages will be on tap.
