Brewing Big Beer in an Oshkosh Parking Lot

Saturday was a great day for brewing beer in a parking lot. And that’s exactly what the Society of Oshkosh Brewers did as part of the American Homebrew Association’s Big Brew Day. The brewing began around 8 am in the parking lot in front of O’Marro’s Public House and by late afternoon approximately 50 gallons of beer and 10 gallons of mead had been made. Using a semi-circle of motor homes to help block the wind, the SOBs brewed a variety of beers including an IPA, a Hefeweizen, an Imperial Stout and a Barleywine. Yes, a Barleywine in a parking lot.

Thanks to the SOBs and O’Marro’s Public House for making the event possible.
Here’s a quick slideshow of the action.

  1. Just heard from David Koepke who was at the Big Brew Day in Fond du Lac. Here’s his report: “We had a very good Big Brew Day with 40 people stopping by though the day to sample beer and check out the brewing process. We had people from Fond du Lac, North Fond du Lac, Ripon, Waupun, Eden, Oshkosh, Van dyne and more. All in all, it was a total success.”
