American Craft Beer Week in Oshkosh

Yes, this is American Craft Beer week. Here’s a roundup of what’s going down around here...

Craft Beer Week at Fox River Brewing Co.
Over at Fox River they’re celebrating all week long with special events, deals and more. Tonight (Tuesday, May 17) beginning at 5:30 p.m., they’ll have a Mug Club Member social with free appetizers and tasters of Fox River’s Session IPA along with other beer pairings. Check out the entire week’s worth of events here.

Oso's & Potosi Tap Takeover at Chester V’s
Thursday, May 19, Chester V’s will host a dueling Wisconsin breweries tap takeover featuring O’so Brewing of Plover and Potosi Brewing of – that’s right – Potosi. This is an early-bird takeover beginning at 2 p.m. Check out the event page for more including the list of all ten beers that’ll be pouring.

Craft Cycle Run for Craft Beer Week
This Friday, May 20, meet up with other cyclists at 5:30 p.m. for a ride up the Wiowash State Trail to Bare Bones Brewery. The ride begins at Fox River Brewing at 6 p.m. Each rider will receive a free beer coupon, after purchasing their first FRBC beer (the coupon can be used at a later date, if you’d like). After a beer or two at Bare Bones, the group will head back to Fox River Brewing around 8:30 p.m., for live music on the Patio. Here’s the event page.

Fifth Ward Brewing Company
Here’s a different kind of Craft Beer Week event. I posted this on Facebook this weekend, but for those who don’t indulge in that particular vice, here it is for you. If you’ve been past 1009 S. Main in Oshkosh recently you may have noticed the big “sold” sign. That’s a very good sign. Fifth Ward Brewing Company has now secured the building where they plan to launch their brewery. We’re one step closer to another brewery opening in Oshkosh.
