What's the story of the Brewtown Showdown?

2015 marks the 15th Annual Milwaukee Lacrosse Festival - Brewtown Showdown
The Brewtown Showdown was started in 2000 as men's tournament in order to bring teams from nearby regions together to play against the newly established Milwaukee Lacrosse Team. There were six teams involved in the first year with teams coming from Chicago, Michigan and even Toronto. We held the first youth game with what later became players that established the Verona and University School teams.

Over the years we have added a youth component in conjunction with the Milwaukee Area Youth Lacrosse Association and most recently the girl's high school portion. At this point for 2015, we will have seven different divisions of play for five age groups. We anticipate hosting forty teams during the weekend.

Play hard, have fun and honor the game!
