Mid West Music Fest (MWMF), in partnership with Hy-vee Wine & Spirits and Winona Radio will be hosting a craft beer tasting and silent auction on Saturday, March 4th from 5:00-9:00 PM at the Winona County History Center (160 Johnson St.). The cost for the event is $20 in advance and $25 at the door and includes samples of beer from both local and nationally recognized brewers, hors d’oeuvres and live music from Twin Cities based, and Winona homegrown, Jake Ilika. Some of the breweries represented include Surly, Bauhuas Brew Labs, Oskar Blues, Castle Danger and Winona’s much anticipated new brewers, Island City Brewery. A cash bar with wine by the glass will also be available. A silent auction will allow you to bid on a wide selection of items and experiences generously donated in support of MWMF.
