My stepson Josh is the lead vocalist for FRIENDS, and they play a wide variety of music, but really rock out the classic rock sound that you'll love. I can't wait to see them perform. I've been missing festivals and live music so this event is on my calendar.

The Beaver Dam Amphitheater teamed up with Uncrafted Territory Brewing Co. to bring this event to life. Brett Renfrow, Owner & CEO of Uncrafted Territory, stated, “As craft beer fans we’ve always loved going to beer festivals. As brewery owners, it’s always been a goal to host/pour at a festival. AmpedUP Brew Fest brings both of those to life!

Renfrow continued, “Due to COVID, this event will be a bit different than a standard beer fest but won’t lack any of the great qualities. We will have multiple breweries from all across the state pouring beers at the Dam along with food and live music. Also, Amped Up is set to be an annual event so as CDC guidelines hopefully lighten up in future years, the festival will be able to grow and adapt.”

Becky Geary, Executive Director of Beaver Dam Tourism Commission, said, “When Brett and his team approached us about developing a signature, annual craft beer event at the DAM, we were ecstatic. We are certainly excited for this first one and even more so as we look to the future and making Amped Up an annual event that folks will look forward to every year.

"VIP Tickets are $55 and include early entry at Noon, a commemorative glass, an official event T-shirt, and 24 beer tickets. We only have 100 VIP tickets available and expect them to go fast. GA tickets are $40 and will include access at 1pm, commemorative glass, and 24 beer tickets.”

Geary said, “As with all of our events this year, tickets are limited due to safety protocols. We encourage folks to secure tickets in advance. In addition to VIP and GA tickets, we will also offer Designated Driver tickets for just $5. We want everyone to enjoy themselves, and feel safe doing so.”

It should be a fun and festive day in Beaver Dam! Will you be going?
