Samples from The Fermentorium Brewery

10 Beer Events Brewing This Week in Milwaukee: Aug. 11-16

This week means beer releases, brewery fitness classes and a reminder to order your Wisconsin IPA Fest beers.

Tuesday, Aug. 11

The beer was actually released last Friday, but I love this pairing from Stock House Brewing. For just $22 you can grab a four-pack of Up North IPA and a four pack of bratwursts made by Leroy Meats using Stock House beer.

Wednesday, Aug. 12

Sprecher’s Pass Me A Pint Tour wraps up the summer at Juneau Park (900 N. Prospect Ave.) and will be there until Sept. 27.

It’s good to see outdoor fitness activity resuming. The Fermentorium (7481 State Rd. 60, Cedarburg) and Burn Boot Camp Mequon team up to offer a free outdoor pop-up boot camp at 6:30 p.m. Bring your own water and towel, and if you participate you get $1 off of the beers you drink after.

Eagle Park Brewing is taking over a few of the taps at The Brass Tap (7808 W. Layton Ave.) at 5 p.m.

1840 Brewing starts its online presale of Nilla Berliner Weisse at 9 a.m. Pick-up and walk-up sales are from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday and noon 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Good City Brewing is tapping its take on Black is Beautiful Imperial Stout at its Century City building (3945 N. 31st St.) at noon. Proceeds from the beer benefit the 30th Street Corridor initiative.

MobCraft Beer and Pop’s MarketPlace have an enticing Snacks and Sweets pairing during a live Zoom at 7 p.m. The pairings for two include four beers, a snack, and a pair of honey sticks. Cost is $25, but you have to order by 10 p.m. on Friday.

The Fermentorium  is releasing It’s All Green to Me New England IPA and new version of Music Maker Pale Ale. Also, at 6 p.m., The Falafel Guys will be there.

Sunday, Aug. 16

One of Milwaukee’s newest breweries, Faklandia Brewing (3807 S. Packard Ave.), hosts outdoor yoga at 11 a.m. For $22 you get an hour yoga session and post-yoga beer. Bring your own mat and a mask.

Pick up for Wisconsin IPA Fest packages begins at Third Space Brewing (1515 W. St. Paul Ave.) and runs through August 20. It sounds like they’re going fast, so order one as soon as you can. The virtual event is August 22.
