A trio of beer-soaked events coming up this weekend to get your Oktober underway...
Festivities kick off with a 2K beer walk/run beginning at 11:00 a.m. (Registration at 10:00 a.m.). Following the run, the fest gets into gear with music, food, wiener dogs races and of course plenty of good beer. And I’ll be there from approximately 12-4 p.m. leading folks through a guided sampling of German-style beers. If you go, stop by and say hello.
Much more info on Oshkosh Oktoberfest is available here.
Bare Bones Brewery’s Bitchin' Bonfire Bone-nanza!
Same day, but just a little later, Bare Bones Brewery will host its inaugural fall fest, appropriately named Bitchin' Bonfire Bone-nanza!
They’ll have a bonfire, BBQ, beer and music in the lot outside the brewery. Among the the bands playing will be Nordlund, featuring Bare Bones brewmaster RJ Nordlund. You gotta see that!
The Bone-nanza begins at 5 p.m. and will last well into the night. For more info, check out the Facebook event page.
Oshkosh Girls Pint Out
The first gathering of the Oshkosh Chapter of Girls Pint Out will happen Sunday, October 2, at 5 p.m. at Bare Bones Brewery. All the info on that can be found right here.
You don’t need to sign-up for the event, but if you do go it would probably be a good idea to head over to the Facebook event page and hit the "Going" button. That’ll give them a better idea of how many folks they’ll have in attendance.
