Summer is drawing to a close, and beer drinking in Wisconsin is just getting started. There are a ton of great upcoming events in the Madison area (I even threw in a few non-beer related events because you just need to go)! End of August 8/23-28
Sour and Funky Week Redux, Brasserie V. Their July sour event was such a hit, they decided to do it again. Josh always puts a good list together and there will be food and flight specials all week. There will of course be a sour or t

When somebody asks in May to hang out and you have to tell them all your weekends are booked from now through August, you know you have a fantastic summer ahead of you. Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t ALL been beer related (I threw some winery hopping in there), but it’s pretty darn close.
