Beer Events Brewing This Week: Dec. 28-30

The holidays mean a short break in the busy beer schedule. But that doesn’t mean the week is completely without an event or two.

Friday, Dec. 28

Ahnapee Brewing hands out samples at Discount Liquor Milwaukee (5031 W. Oklahoma Ave.) from 3 to 6 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 29

Do you have family in town you want entertain? Or family in town that you want to escape from? Either way, Untapped Tours has you covered. Its 3-1/2 hour brewery tour starts at 1:15 p.m. at Company Brewing (735 E. Center St.). The route also stops at Lakefront Brewery (1872 N. Commerce St.), Gathering Place Brewing (811 E. Vienna Ave.) and Black Husky Brewing (909 E. Locust St.). For $55 you get two small pours at each stop, a tour of each brewery, and a ride.

Sunday, Dec. 30

Sugar Maple (441 E. Lincoln Ave.) hosts Not the Brewery Series Series, with beers from Stillwater Artisanal Ales, Evil Twin Brewing, Against the Grain Brewery, and Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. For $20 you can sample five pours from a pretty solid menu.

Post-holiday exercise is a good thing. Head to MobCraft (505 S. 5th St.) at 10:30 a.m. for a 45-minute yoga class by Abliss. See pricing on the event page and be sure to bring cash (no credit cards are accepted).
