Get Ready for Brews n' Blues 2010

Summer must be here because Brews n' Blues is just around the corner. On July 17th the 15th annual microbrew and music festival organized by the Oshkosh Jaycees will take place at the Leach Amphitheater in Oshkosh from 3-7 p.m. This year’s event is looking good. More than 30 breweries will be on hand pouring  samples of over 100 brews. Meanwhile, the blues side of things will be taken care of with live music from Greg Waters and The Broad Street Boogie and Donnie Pick and The Unit .

This year, the Jaycees are adding a new wrinkle. They’re including a “Brew School” hosted by the Society Of Oshkosh Brewers. The SOBs will be on-hand to brew a few beers and talk about the process to anyone yearning to learn how the good stuff gets made. If you’re interested in making beer, this would be a fun way to take the short course on brewing your own.

This is a nicely priced festival with tickets just $30 in advance and $40 at the door. And you can feel good about buying them, too, with proceeds going to help the Christine Ann Center for Domestic Abuse and other Oshkosh area charities. Be one of the first 700 people through the gate you’ll get a 2010 Brews n' Blues collectible sampling glass.

These things have a tendency to sneak up, so don’t put off getting those tickets. In Oshkosh, advance tickets are available at Barley & Hops, Dublin's, Festival Foods and O’Marro’s. July 17th is going to be a great day at the Leach!
