OctoBEER in Oshkosh

The last half of October in Oshkosh will bring a trio of beery bashes that just might be to your liking. Here’s what’s coming up:

Tuesday, October 15: Gardina’s Beer Bar Series No. 3.
This time they’ll be pouring from a barrel (not a firkin) of Destihl Brew Works Sour Hawaii Five-Ale. It’s Belgian-Style ale aged in oak-barrels and naturally soured through a spontaneous secondary fermentation by wild yeast lingering in the wood. Don’t get too hung up on the “sour” thing, though. This beer leans towards the candied pineapple and citrus side of things with little of the wince factor that puts some people off sours. It’s a barrel only beer and this is the only barrel of it coming to Oshkosh, so get it while you can. The pouring start at 6 p.m.

Saturday, October 26: Shiner Beer Tent at O’Marro’s
Here’s the kind of beer party that Shawn at O’Marro’s does better than anyone else in town. They’ll have a heated tent in the parking lot of O’Marro’s where they’ll be pouring the beers of the Spoetzl Brewery of Shiner, Texas (including that damned Bock that made them so famous). All pints of the Shiner brews will be just $2.50. And at 8 p.m., The Mighty Short Bus will start rocking the tent. There’s no charge to get in and the party should go well into the night. There's a Facebook page for the event HERE.

Tuesday, October 29: Oktoberfest Beer/Wine Dinner at Fratellos.
German Beer, German Wine, German Food; can’t go wrong with that. This is a dinner pairing German style wines and beers with a five-course meal consisting of German cuisine. They’re putting a lot on the plate for this one, so to view the full menu including the accompanying beers and wines go HERE. The $35 ticket includes everything, but you’ll need to reserve your spot in advance. Do that by either stopping in at Fratellos or by calling them at 920.232.2337. Prost!
