The Mavyille Park Pavilion is visible from HWY 67 coming into Mayville and is right on the edge of the beautiful Rock River. Back in the early 1900's it was home to Ziegler BrewingCompany. Says Dan Koepsell, "It's kind of neat to have the event at the pavilion with it's history of being a brewery back in the day. Last year people had a blast! We sold out last year and hope to again this year again. It's a great event! You get to try all kinds of craft beers plus you receive free food and entertainment with your ticket price and it's all for a good cause." Other activities at the bierfest include a silent auction, live music by "Mark Wayne" and sports on big screen televisions.
