See You Wednesday Night at Barley & Hops

The Barley & Hops Beer Sampling Series rolls on Wednesday night (Feb. 6) with the pride of Amherst, Central Waters Brewing, taking center stage. In addition to the Central Waters arsenal, the beers of New Orleans’ Abita Brewing will be featured (Mardis Gras is almost here), along with a healthy compliment of other craft brews, wines and boozes. And as if that weren’t enough, there’ll be a couple of homebrews available; beers so secret I’m not allowed to mention their names here (but I’ll give you a big hint: both of them have a long history of being brewed and served in Oshkosh). As Barley’s owner Nat Stiefvater says, “I don’t care how big of a beer geek you are, there’s always going to be something here that you haven’t tried before.” Damn right there will be!

The sampling runs from 7-10 p.m. Tickets are $15, if you pick them up at Barley’s before the event or $20 at the door. You’ll find me there wearing a Chief Oshkosh shirt (another homebrew hint), so stop by and say hello. If you need more info, check out the Facebook page. Also, check out the February edition of the Oshkosh SCENE for the full story of Barley & Hops and the man behind the bar.
