Local Beers at Local Bars

Here’s a nice development: This past week we noticed a couple of instances of locally brewed beer going on tap in Oshkosh. At Becket’s they now have the Vanishing Vanilla Stout from Stone Cellar in Appleton on tap. Meanwhile, over at Barley & Hops, they’re pouring Winnebago Wheat and Caber Tossing Scottish Ale from Oshkosh’s Fox River Brewing. You don’t often see these beers making their way out of the pubs they’re brewed in, but that hasn’t always been the case. Fox River Brewing, in particular, had their beer in a number of Oshkosh bars and restaurants in the late 90s, but as of late their presence outside of their brew pubs has diminished almost entirely. The clear winner of this flight is the Caber Tossing at Barley & Hops. Nate and his crew there do great job keeping their beer lines in good shape so the beer comes across in all its malty glory. Looks like we’re headed for some Scotland-esque weather this weekend, perfect for dipping into a hearty Scottish Ale.
