Help us Reduce Waste
Join our effort to reduce the plastic cup waste at our beer garden by purchasing the official Midwest Outdoor Experience earth-friendly pint glass, once again provided by Green Earth Outdoors. This year we feature the Klean Kanteen 16oz Stainless Steel Pint Cup. Made of 18/8, food-grade stainless steel, the 16oz Kanteen Steel Pint Cup is durable, versatile, reusable, and dishwasher safe. It won't break like glass pints and won't fill the garbage can or landfill like the ubiquitous red cup. Get yours and save $1 per beer at Midwest Outdoor Experience.
All other cups in THE beer garden are compostable and courtesy of Great Lakes Brewing Company. Please do your part and find a compost receptacle in the main festival.
By using the provided compostable cups or purchasing the Kleen Kanteen 16oz Stainless Steel Pint Cup, you are contributing to our Waste Free in 3 effort. Thanks for being a part of positive change. We appreciate your support.
- Re-usable Kanteen 16oz Stainless Steel Pint Cup is $10. By using this re-usable cup, you will receive a $1 discount on all beer purchases at the Great Lakes Brewing Company beer garden, Just bring back it back in future years or purchase a new pint each year to receive discount pricing.
- Regular beer prices will be $5 per cup. With the Kanteen 16oz Stainless Steel Pint Cup, beers are only $4.
Special note: If you purchased a Green Earth Outdoors Silipint at GearFest in 2011, the $1 per beer discount will also be honored.
