Old Fashioned Fest

Old Fashioned Fest

POSTPONED TO 2022 | Turner Hall Ballroom

OFF Postponed

We are sad to announce that Old Fashioned Fest has been postponed date TBD.

Due to labor shortages facing the entire restaurant and bar industry we are unable to host the great events that people have come to expect from the Shepherd Express.

All ticket holders will be receiving an email from our ticketing system (Bold Type Ticketing). Tickets will be valid for the new TBD date. Thank you for hanging with us during these times, and we’ll be together sampling soon! 🥃

Join Shepherd Express at Turner Hall Ballroom for a toast to a Milwaukee classic—the Old Fashioned! You won't want to miss this Whiskey vs. Brandy showdown. Sample both classic and re-imagined Old Fashioneds, vote on your favorite whiskey and brandy version, and we’ll crown winners at the end of the night.

Valid proof of full vaccination (final dose must be at least 14 days prior to event) or Valid proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the show. Masks are encouraged, but not required.
