Quick note about a couple of upcoming beer blasts at Dublin’s Irish Pub in Oshkosh.
Tonight (as in Wednesday, February 24), Dublin’s welcomes Lakefront Brewery co-founder Jim Klisch to town for the release of two new brews from the Milwaukee brewery. At 6 pm, they’ll tap into kegs of Hop Jockey, Lakefront’s new double IPA, and Lakefront Maibock. Holy shit, it’s bock season! I’ve been getting into both these beers lately. They’re definitely worth checking out.
Before we move along, here’s a swell picture I recently came across. This shot was taken in the late 1980s and shows our man Klisch (white sweatshirt) sharing a beer with the one and only Beer Hunter, Michael Jackson (front and center). If you run into Jim tonight, do me a favor: pull out your phone and have him look at this picture. I wonder if he’ll recognize himself?
Then on Monday, February 29, Dublin’s welcomes in Sheboygan’s 8th Street Ale Haus Brewery for a tap takeover. This will be the first time 8th Street’s beers have been poured here in Oshkosh. You can say you were there. I gotta run. Prost!
