8 Beer Events Brewing This Week in Milwaukee: Oct. 20-25

It’s a busy beer week. Start it by hitting up The Brass Tap on Thursday for some of the best barrel-aged stouts in the Midwest.

Thursday, Oct. 22

The barrel-aging program at Revolution Brewing just might be the best in Chicago. Judge for yourself at the Deep Woods Preview Party at The Brass Tap (7808 W. Layton Ave.) at 5 p.m. They’ll be pouring Deth’s Tar Stout, Café Deth and Maple Deth.

Party on Pitt (117 E. Pittsburgh Ave.) wraps up this weekend. Halloween is appropriately the theme. So wear a costume if you’re headed to the outdoor party. The fun, hosted by Broken Bat Brewing and MobCraft, runs from 3:30 to 9 p.m. on Friday, noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Heaven’s Table BBQ is providing the pig roast and Vennture Brew Co. (5519 W. North Ave.) provides the beer at the aptly-named Pocket Park Pig Roast and Beer at 5 p.m. Vennture adds to the fun by releasing two new beers – Cacao Tipping Rye Chocolate Porter and Not a Pizza NEIPA.

Hacienda Beer Co. (2018 E. North Ave.) is releasing Hollywood Kid Double IPA at noon. Pre-order before you pick up.
