The Brews of Brews n’ Blues

Brews n’ Blues 2010 is coming up Saturday, so if you haven’t picked up your tickets yet you might want to fit that into your schedule today. Advanced tickets are $30 (it’s $40 at the door) and they’re available in Oshkosh at Barley & Hops, Festival Foods and O’Marro’s Public House.

It’s going to be a great afternoon with loads of good beer and live music from Greg Waters and The Broad Street Boogie and Donnie Pick and The Unit. The Society Of Oshkosh Brewers will be there hosting a “Brew School” with SOBs brewing beer and happily answering questions about how to brew your own. I’ll be one of the brewers, so if you get a chance stop by and say hello.

Below is a list of the breweries that will be pouring Saturday. If I had to make a recommendation I’d say head over to the Old Bavarian stand and try their Munich Helles. I had a big mug of it a couple weeks ago. It’s an excellent beer and maybe the best American brewed Helles I’ve had. It’s a subtle beer, though, so get to it early before all those big beers have wrought havoc upon your palate.
Here's the list of participating breweries.
Abita Capital Central Waters Corsendonk Flying Dog Founders
Grand Teton Hook & Ladder Lagunitas Leinenkugels Lost Coast
Magic Hat Moylans Old Bavarian Oskar Blue Oso Pangaea Potosi
Pyramid Reaper Ales Sam Adams Sand Creek Shiner Sonoran
Southern Tier Stevens Point Strangford Tyranena Upland
The 15th Annual Brews n’ Blues Charity Microbrew and Music Festival is Saturday, July 17, 2010 from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM at the Leach Amphitheater in downtown Oshkosh. For more information check out the Oshkosh Jaycees website.


  1. Sweet! There are a few on there I've not tried!

  2. OSNW3 - If you get a chance, stop by the SOB "Beer School" tent. I'll be the brewer wearing the Chief Oshkosh Red Lager shirt.

    Ken! this is gonna kick ass!
