Lincoln Lager Barleyfest

1100 Marc Drive
Merrill, WI 54452


The Lincoln Lager Barleyfest Committee is very proud that we have been able to donate over $15,000 to local charities. Benefactors include: Lincoln County Humane Society, Merrill Food Pantry, Normal Park Improvements, and Merrill Tornado Relief Fund, Merrill Historical Society and the Merrill Park Endowment Fund.

The Lincoln Lager Barleyfest is a safe and unique craft beer tasting festival organized by the Lincoln Lager Barleyfest Committee. It is a function of the Merrill Parks & Recreation Department and relies 100% on sponsorship support and ticket sales in order to run the event and contribute to these charities.

Without the generosity of our local businesses and volunteer committee, we would never have become a reality. Attendance has grown from 180 in the first year to over 600 in recent years.

Plans are already well underway for the next Lincoln Lager Barleyfest, always held at the Smith Center Arena at the MARC on the first Saturday in October.
