All About SeptemBeer

There's a trio of good looking beer events happening this month in Oshkosh, here’s a quick glimpse of what’s in store.

The second installment of Gardina’s Beer Bar Series takes place Tuesday, September 17. This time they’ll be tapping a Firkin of O’so Sweet Lady Stout, a milk stout cask conditioned on vanilla beans and cocoa nibs. O’so produced just a single firkin of this version of the beer, so here’s your one and only chance to try it. The faucet get hammered into the firkin at 6 p.m., and seeing that is half the fun, so get there early as you can.

Dublin’s Craft Beer Festival happens Saturday, September 21. This is good. Dublin’s is throwing a full-on beer festival with more than 100 beers to sample. And most of that beer is being donated, meaning 100% of the proceeds will go to the charity they’ve chosen, the Oshkosh Boys and Girls Club. It gets better. During the last 20 minutes of the event you can purchase 6 pack holders from the Boys and Girls Club for $5 and make your own pick-6 pack. The festival will run from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and admission is a very reasonable $25. Tickets are being sold at Dublin’s, just ask the bartender. For more info, click THIS.

COGtoberFEST Wisconsin Bicycle & Beer Festival wheels around Oshkosh on September 28. This one takes the honors for most unique. The main event will be an alleycat bike race featuring Wisconsin craft beer along the route. Don’t get hung up on the “race” aspect, it’s really more about peddling around and having some fun. Cyclists of all skill levels are welcome to join in. The route will be about 15 miles around town with 5 beer stops along the way. In addition to the bike ride, there’s going to be Oktoberfest themed games; authentic German food provided by HotDog Charlie’s and Red Robin; raffles and music. The kickoff is at 11:00 a.m. at Grand Opera House Square. The alleycat bike/beer ride costs $15. For more info and preregistration go HERE. To visit the Facebook event page go HERE.

I’ll send out a separate note about each of these events as they draw nearer. Have a great weekend!
