6 Beer Events Brewing This Week in Milwaukee: May 27-30

Some great new beers to try and another clever idea from MobCraft.

MANY BREWERIES AROUND MILWAUKEE are beginning to open slowly. There are still only a few beer events, but what it lacks in quantity, it certainly makes up for in quality. 

Wednesday, May 27

This week, Sahale Ale Works is releasing the appropriately named All Hell Broke Juice. It’s a smoothie ale with plenty of citrus mixed with lactose and vanilla. Pick it up to go.

The Milwaukee Beer Society casts its virtual spotlight on Broken Bat Brewing. See the new Broken Bat digs on Zoom from 6 to 8 p.m. and plan your arrival when the doors open there.

Continue to learn from the sales guys at Third Space with the weekly Sippin’ with Sales at 6 p.m.

Third Space Brewing (1505 W. St. Paul Ave.) is releasing the first cans of its Beers About Nothing Series. The first is Paloma Sour, a kettle sour made with Himalayan pink sea salt, grapefruit and lime peel. The limited beer is the first of a few. The next two upcoming brews in the series are Flaming Globes of Sigmund Hazy IPA (June 1 release) and Honey Haze Hazy IPA with Honey (June 15 release). All of them sound good.

Lager & Friends Beer Festival is happening from 2 to 4:30 p.m., it’s just that now it’s virtual. Pick up a Lager & Friends bundle at Gathering Place Brewing (811 E.
