Brews n’ Blues 2014 Draws Near

Time again for Brews n’ Blues. This year’s edition of Oshkosh’s longest running beer festival takes place next Saturday, June 21 from 4:00-8:00 p.m at the Leach Amphitheater.

Tickets are available now and you’ll want to pick them up before you get to the event. If you buy your tickets in advance they’re $35, but they’ll set you back $45 if you wait to get them at the gate.

You can purchase advance tickets online HERE, or you can get them in the flesh at Oblio’s, O’Marro’s Public House or Festival Foods. And if you want to go whole hog, O’Marro’s will have a VIP tent at the event that includes food and other sundries. That ticket goes for $50.

One thing that’s different about this year’s fest will be the sea of homebrew. The Society of Oshkosh Brewers will be there as usual, but in addition to our SOBs there will be a number of other homebrew clubs from around the state bringing in brew. If you’ve ever been to a beer fest with a healthy selection of homebrew, you know where the real action is going to be.

I’ll be there with a brew of my own and I’ll also be doing a homebrewing demonstration. I’m going to make that Sesquicentennial Ale I was blogging about the other day. If you show, stop by and say hello.

In addition to all that beer, there’s going to be live music throughout the day from Swamp Shag, featuring Chris Aaron & Jim Schwall, and Tin Sandwich.

If I’ve missed anything, you can probably get what you’re looking for HERE. Hope to see you next Saturday!
