12 Beer Events Brewing in Milwaukee: Feb. 22-27

Ray’s Wine & Spirits has a lot going on this week, including the return of Wückfinter, an outdoor winter bash with a serious tap list.

Tuesday, Feb. 22

Third Space Brewing (1505 W. St. Paul Ave.) is releasing Double Dip, a dip-hopped double IPA. The brewery describes it as being loaded with notes of citrus, stone fruit and pine. Sounds good to me. The beer is extremely limited, so get there at 4 p.m. to ensure you get some.

Amorphic Beer (3700 N. Fratney St.) celebrates Twosday (2/22/22) by being open from 4 to 10 p.m. and knocking $2 off of full pours.

Learn what makes Central Waters Brewing tick at Behind the Beer, hosted by Ray’s Growler Gallery (8930 W. North Ave.). Cost is $25 and the event runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Central Waters founder Anello Mollica will be there with Central Waters Milwaukee head brewer Brendan Williamson. There will be a few new cans of Central Waters brews and taps like Black Gold barrel-aged imperial Stout.
