Have a Beer with Jim Lundstrom this Sunday at O'Marro's

Let’s give this another go... Back in December there was to be a benefit for the Real Beer Man, Jim Lundstrom, who last year was run over by a ¾-ton truck while riding his bike. Lundstrom was uninsured at the time of the accident and was left with a smashed hand, a fractured knee and an overwhelming pile of medical bills. Unfortunately, the original benefit was scrubbed thanks to the first big snowstorm of the season, but now the time has come to give it another shot.

This Sunday (Feb. 13) beginning at 4 p.m. the Real Beer Man Needs Rehab Benefit will take place at O’Marro’s Public House in Oshkosh. There will be live music from Bobby Evans, The Mad Polecats, Mike Engle, Iggy Rae Vicious and Ryan Mahoney & the Man Grenade Explosion; along with beer specials, food, raffles and more. Best of all, you get to have a real beer with the Real Beer Man.

Over the years, Lundstrom has done plenty for the Oshkosh beer scene. He was a founding member of the Society of Oshkosh Brewers and while working for the Oshkosh Northwestern was one of the first reporters here to write about quality beer, a mission that he continues with his Real Beer Man column in The Scene. This Sunday, let’s show Jim our appreciation and have a great time doing it.
