Beer Events Brewing This Week: July 3-7

A holiday week means a sparse beer calendar. But there are a few limited beer releases to check out. Enjoy the Fourth of July.

Wednesday, June 3

Head to Third Space Brewing (1505 W. St. Paul Ave.) to try Oat Cream Ale, a taproom-only release that’s part of the limited Beers About Nothing series.

Eagle Park Brewing (823 E. Hamilton St.) is releasing Flavor Town New England IPA, a potent 8% ABV brew made with Citra and Mosaic hops. The public release is slated for 3 p.m.

Get to Discount Liquor Waukesha (919 N. Barstow St.) early and hang out for some amazing samples. Shorts Brewing will be there from 1 to 4 p.m., City Lights Brewing from 4 to 6 p.m. and Three Floyds from 5 to 7 p.m.

Try samples from City Lights at Discount Liquor Milwaukee (5031 W. Oklahoma Ave.) from 3 to 5 p.m.

Thursday, July 4

Want to be patriotic for Independence Day? Drink an American-made craft beer.

Friday, June 5

1840 Brewing (342 E. Ward St.) is releasing its popular Sea Foam Fruited Sour, a blue-hued brew made with pineapple, passion fruit, lactose and blue spirulina (that’s an edible blue-green algae). It’s available on draft on Friday (3 to 10 p.m.), in bottles on Saturday (11 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and again on Sunday (noon to 8 p.m.). Get there early Saturday if you want a bottle because Sea Foam sold out in less than two hours the last time it was available. They’ll also be pouring a collab with Hacienda Beer Co., a double dry-hopped concoction co-fermented with grape juice.

Try samples from Chicago’s Revolution Brewing at Discount Liquor Waukesha from 3 to 5 p.m.

There are plenty of options for beer yoga on Saturday. Yoga takes place at the Estabrook Beer Garden (4600 Estabrook Parkway) at 10 a.m., City Lights Brewing (2200 W. Mt. Vernon Ave.) at 10 a.m., and the Minooka Park Pop-Up Beer Garden (1927 E. Sunset Dr.) at 3 p.m. Namaste.
