A Worthy Cause
The purpose of the Craft Brew & Sausage Fest is to raise funds to preserve, restore and enhance the historic Liederkranz, one of Downtown Grand Island’s most prominent landmarks, by bringing together a cultural offering of regional craft brews and meats as an event intended to benefit the whole community.
Sadly, the Liederkranz today is a shadow of its former self. The city’s once bustling institution is only partially open three days a week and is in need of major renovation and structural updates. But the bigger tragedy would be to not restore this historical gem for future generations to enjoy, before it is too late.
