18 Beer Events Brewing in Milwaukee This Week: March 8-12

Mystic Knot, Women’s Month and a handful of new releases make for a busy beer week.

Taste the fruit of their labor when Third Space releases the beer from 5 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, which is International Women’s Day. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Wisconsin Chapter of the Pink Boots Society. The release kicks off a busy week of beer events.
