Fond du Lac BrewFest is Coming February 1

The 4th annual Fond du Lac BrewFest is less than a month away and it’s shaping up nicely. This year, they have 26 breweries signed on to pour more than 200 beers. The fest will also feature a “Homebrew Alley” where 13 Wisconsin homebrewing clubs – including a few of us SOBs from Oshkosh – will be serving over 100 different homebrews.

Aside from all that good homebrew, one of the things that sets this beer party apart is the number of brewpubs that participate. These brewers serve up beer you can’t typically get outside of their pubs, so it’s a good chance to get in front of some new brews without driving all over creation to get them. Between the pro-brew and the homebrew, there’s sure to be plenty you haven’t swallowed before.

The Fond du Lac BrewFest takes place Saturday, February 1 from 2-6pm at the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds. Tickets are $30 in advance or $40 at the door. Here in Oshkosh, you can purchase tickets at O’Marro’s Public House or at the BrewFest website, where you’ll also find more info. For you Facebookers there’s this. If you go, stop by the SOB table and say hello. I’ll be pouring my homebrewed Midwest XX Mild based on a recipe from 1901. Bet you haven’t had a beer like this one before. See you in Fondy!
