This Week’s Beer Breaks
A couple of good looking, small-scale tastings taking place this week that you might want to check out.
First, on Wednesday night (April 3), Barley & Hops concludes another season of its Barley’s Beer Sampling series. This time the feature brewery is Stone Arch Brew House of Appleton (F/K/A Stone Cellar). Also featured will be New Belgium’s Lips of Faith Series along with homebrew provided by the Society of Oshkosh Brewers. There’s also going to be a healthy flight of other beers, wines and liquors to sample. Tickets are $15 in advance (pick them up at Barley’s), or $20 at the door. The tasting runs from 7-10 p.m and they’re always a blast. For more info, see the event’s Facebook Page.
Then on Thursday night (April 4) Fratellos will be hosting a Wine vs. Beer “Cage Match.” They’ll be serving a five-course meal and each course will be paired with both a wine and a beer. Each guest will then judge which beverage pairs best with the dish. Tickets are $35 per person with the proceedings beginning at 6:30 p.m. More info on the food, the wines and the beers can be found HERE.
