Beer Events Brewing This Week in Milwaukee: July 21-25

Baseball opens the season in July? Yeah, it’s been a weird spring and summer. But you can count on plenty of great local beer events to take your mind off of the strange circumstances.

Tuesday, July 21

Eagle Park Brewing’s much anticipated Muskego taproom (S64 W15640 Commerce Center Pkwy. Muskego) is officially open this week. Hours are 3 to 10 p.m. on weekdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Safety protocols are on the brewery’s Facebook page.

Station No. 06 (6800 W. Becher St.) is pouring a few limited brews from 3 Sheeps Brewing including The Wolf Barrel-Aged Stout. But wait, there’s more. With every 3 Sheeps beer you get a raffle ticket for meat and cheese from Becher Meats and West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe. Drawings are at 6, 7 and 8 p.m.

Sprecher’s Pass Me a Pint Traveling Beer Garden is scheduled to land at McCarty Park (8214 W. Cleveland Ave.) at 5 p.m. and will be there until August 9. Hours are 5 to 10 p.m. during the week and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Thursday, July 23

Revolution Brewing is taking over a few of the taps at The Lokal Beer Garden (8415 W. Sura Ln.) at 4 p.m. The impressive menu includes VSOD Barrel-Aged Stout and Supermassive Café Deth Barrel-Aged Stout, which are good indicators of how Revolution has positioned itself (in my opinion) as having the best barrel-aging program in Chicago.

Friday, July 24

It’s Opening Day! The baseball season is certainly an odd one this year, but at least it’s back. The Brewers open the abbreviated season against the Cubs. Head to Broken Bat Brewing because they like baseball too. If you don’t feel up to being a taproom, Broken Bat just started selling a few limited releases online until the end of the month.

The Fermentorium is pouring its tasty beers at the The Bend at the Barn, a beer garden at Sandy Knoll County Park (2064 Wallace Lake Rd., West Bend). Hours are 4 to 9 p.m.

Saturday, July 25

They’re grilling Sheboygan beer brats from Becher Meats at Station No. 06 and pairing them with Rebel Kent Amber Ale. Get there from noon to 3 p.m. for a fine lunch.
