Mid-Week Beer Notes

• Let’s start with some news for brewers. NDC in Oshkosh is running a sale that’s a boon to homebrewers. For the entire month of May they’re offering a 15% discount on brewing supplies. The only exclusion is 50 lb. bags of malt, which they already sell cheaper than anybody else. Time to stock up for the outdoor brewing season.

• Speaking of brewing outdoors, the Society of Oshkosh Brewers had a great time with their Big Brew Day last Saturday. HERE’s a slideshow/video of their brewday. As you can see, it takes beer to make beer.

• Thursday night (May 16), Oblio’s is having a sampling featuring the beers of Lagunitas Brewing.  Pints will be just $3 and you'll get to keep the glass. The fun runs from 9-11 p.m. 

• My new Oshkosh Beer Garden column for the SCENE is online HERE. This one suggests a beer to drink for every day in May. Seeing as we’re now eight day into the month, you’ll have some catching up to do.

• And finally, Founders Old Curmudgeon, one of the greats, is now pouring at Dublin’s. Here’s Jon Cameron of Dublin’s to tell you all about it.

  1. I think you may have to give Jon a few pointers on beer tasting and explanation!
