American Craft Beer Week at Fratellos in Oshkosh

Did you know this is American Craft Beer Week? Of course you did. For nine years running, the Brewers Association has highlighted a week in May to encourage people in the good-beer trade to do something special in celebration of the small and independent brewing movement.

At Fratellos in Oshkosh they’ll do a couple of things to mark the occasion. First, they’re having a keg swap with Red Eye Brewing of Wausau. All week long, Fratellos will have Red Eye’s Dopplesticke Altbier on tap. This is a big, malty, German-style brown ale. Red Eye makes some great beer. If you haven’t had a chance to check out their stuff, this is a good way to do it without having to drive to Wausau.

Then on Friday (May 16) at 4:00 pm, Fratellos will tap a batch of Fox River’s Shakedown IPA. This is a single-hop, 7.1% IPA that’s long on simcoe, a hop that delivers a flood of pine and citrus flavors. They’ll open the tap on that and offer free samples until 5:00 pm. Can’t beat free. Happy Craft Beer Week!
