Look no further than the Biergarten for a place to hang out and cool off this year. Located next to Main Stage, this festive tent is home to two of our fan favorite activities: The Home Brew Competition and the Stein Hoisting Competition. There’s always lots of fun and shenanigans happening in the Biergarten, so grab a stein and head on over!
