I’ve always been a big fan of beer altruism (whatever it takes, right?). The latest is the Milwaukee Legends Beer Dinner, hosted by the Five O’Clock Steakhouse (2416 W. State St.). I love the fact that the four-course dinner includes pairings with beers from Sprecher and Lakefront—two Milwaukee craft beer pioneers. Also, some of the $70 price benefits Capuchin Community Services-House of Peace and St. Ben’s Community Meal, which provides more than 2,000 meals each week to Milwaukee residents in need.
