Oshkosh Girls Pint Out is hosting a special beer release at Bare Bones Brewery Saturday, February 11 at 6 p.m. And the women from GPO are inviting everyone to attend.
Here's the deal: Oshkosh Girls Pint Out asked Bare Bones to brew a beer in honor of Anna Windhauser, who established the first homebrew shop in Oshkosh during Prohibition in 1925. The beer, developed by Bare Bones assistant brewer Jody Cleveland, is based on the bock beers produced by Peoples Brewing of Oshkosh in the years immediately before the onset of Prohibition.
There hasn't been a bock beer like this made commercially in Oshkosh in almost 100 years. Only a couple barrels of it were made, so get it while you can. Thanks to Bare Bones, $1.00 from each pint of Anna's Bock sold will go to the Alzheimers Association in memory of Anna Windhauser who was afflicted with the disease.
I'll be there at 6 p.m. to give a brief talk about the life and work of Anna Windhauser (and after that, I intend to drink copious amounts of Anna's Bock). Girls Pint Out encourages folks to "Wear your best 1920's attire and join us for an evening of prohibition-era fun and dance!"
