Beer Events Brewing This Week: May 7-11

It’s Milwaukee Beer Week, but there are a few events outside of the beer week schedule to keep you even busier.

I have a few suggestions if you want to participate in Milwaukee Beer Week events this week. If not, here are a few off the beer week radar.

Tuesday, May 7

The Fermentorium (7481 State Rd. 60, Cedarburg) hosts an hour-long yoga session from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Cost is $15 and includes a couple of beer tokens for when you’re done.

Wednesday, May 8

Lift Bridge Brewing makes the trip from Minnesota to Ray’s Growler Gallery (8930 W. North Ave.) at 5 p.m.

Thursday, May 9

Uber Tap Room (1048 N. Old World Third St.) hosts another one of its grilled cheese and beer pairings. The cost is $20 to sample four of each.

Friday, May 10

This weekend’s release at 1840 Brewing (342 E. Ward St.) is a good one. From 3 to 10 p.m. they’ll be releasing Six Barrel-Aged Stout, which has aged for six months. The beer will be on tap and available in bottles. It’s the first in a series that includes Nine, Twelve and Eighteen. It’ll also be available starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday and noon on Sunday.

Saturday, May 11

Good City Brewing’s Seek the Good Saturday heads to the Urban Ecology Center (1500 E. Park Pl.) from 9 to 11 a.m. Your efforts are rewarded with a free beer afterward. See the details and register to be a part of it all.

Learn how to set up your draft system at a free kegging tutorial at Northern Brewer (1306 S. 108th St.) at 2 p.m.

Work off your Milwaukee Beer Week with a morning yoga session at Milwaukee Brewing Company (1128 N. 9th St.). Cost is $12 and includes a beer.
