The Summer Beer Season
Wednesday, July 15: Cask tapping at Dublin’s Irish Pub. At 6 p.m. get into a cask of Lakefront Brewery Cherry Lager conditioned on cacao nibs. Lakefront co-founder Jim Klisch will be on hand. Might as well have dinner while you’re there. They’ll have a featured dessert to pair with the beer.
Tuesday, July 21: Door County Brewing Company cask tapping at Gardina's. I don’t have the full run-down on this one, yet, but I believe they’ll be tapping a special cask of Silurian Stout with some extras happening in the cask. The beer begins flowing at 6 p.m. with an optional dinner menu planned around the beer.
Saturday, July 25: 20th Annual Brews n’ Blues Beer Festival at the Leach Amphitheater. Once again the centerpiece of Oshkosh’s summer beer events. The fest runs from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 in advance or $45 at the door. There's also a sweet VIP tent being operated by O'Marro's (tickets for that are $50). Tickets are available in Oshkosh at Festival Foods, Fox River Brewing, Oblios, and O'Marro's. Or you can get them online RIGHT HERE. Also, see the Facebook event page for more. If/when the beer list becomes available, I’ll post it here.
Friday, August 14: The Magnet is chartering a beer bus to Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee. The trip includes a tour of Lakefront, a fish fry and boat trip. The bus departs at 2 p.m. with “pre-game” beginning at The Mag at noon. Check out the Facebook event page for more info.
Saturday, August 15: O’Marro’s Public House is chartering a luxury coach to Irish Fest in Milwaukee. Your seat on the bus includes breakfast at O'Marro's, beer on the bus, and an in coach movie. See the Facebook event page for more info.
Wednesday, August 26: Beer Dinner at Dublin’s Irish Pub. The featured brewery is Milwaukee Brewing Company. Among the beers will be a cask beer. Dinner begins at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30 and available at the pub.
A couple of other things, I want to pass along.
The inaugural brew at Bare Bones Brewery is scheduled for early tomorrow (Wednesday, July 15) morning. As of Saturday, the plan was to brew a brown ale that should go on tap at Bare Bones near the end of this month.
Back in May I posted about Oshkosh’s Sawdust City Brewing Company, a new brewery in the planning stages. Things are still going according to plan, but the name Sawdust City Brewing is no longer a part of that plan. Seems a brewery in Canada, got their hackles up over the use of that name. Not to worry. I’m sure the boys will come up with something clever for their new moniker.
OK, that’s it. And I think that’s enough.
