A visit to the Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells now means you can sample some local and regional craft beers right on property. Join us at Klondike Kate’s near the Klondike Kavern Waterpark for a sampling, choose your favorites and pair them with a pizza from our nearby Klondike Pizza Kitchen.
According to Eric, our food and beverage manager, “Wisconsin’s history is synonymous with names like Schlitz, Pabst, Blatz and Miller, so it is only natural for Wisconsinites to have a love of beer. However, in recent years, craft beers, which are brewed by small, independent and traditional breweries have really taken front and center stage with beer connoisseurs.
“Craft brewers are known for being creative. They are constantly coming up with new hops and beer flavors to keep beer lovers coming back for more. And, with apps like “Untapped”, which allow you to share socially with your friends the beer you’re currently enjoying, as well as where you’re enjoying it, beer drinking is more fun than ever!
“I think it’s safe to say it has become a hobby of sorts for beer fans to keep track of the brews they’ve tried, record the ones they liked, and keep a list of which ones they want to try in the future.”
Klondike Kate’s craft beer selection will be rotating on a regular basis so you will have fresh choices each time you visit the Wilderness.
