the details

Riveredge’s Frothy Forage has become the premier outdoor craft beer, wine, and cider festival in the area.  This event is truly unique as participants are invited to explore the great outdoors of Wisconsin by hiking through the forests, prairies, and wetlands of Riveredge while enjoying the best libations from local purveyors. 

The Frothy Forage is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.

All proceeds from the event go directly to the restoration and conservation of Riveredge’s 402-acre natural sanctuary.

the drinks

We are lucky to partner with amazing local breweries and wineries for this event, and they always come ready with the most wonderful variety of beverages to sample.  From smooth, chocolate porters to crisp and piney IPAs, from big and bold Cabernets to tropical wine slushies, there are sure to be drinks for everyone’s palette!

the Food

When one is drinking, hiking and potentially dancing (live your best life, right?) it is of the utmost importance to stay appropriately fueled.  Never fear, some fantastic local food trucks will be onsite with mouthwatering snacks to purchase!
