Beer Events Brewing This Week in Milwaukee: Dec. 31-Jan. 5

New Year’s Eve is filled with events events for craft beer lovers, but the beer calendar is still sparse for one more week as the holiday season comes to an end.

Tuesday, Dec. 31

Try Kringle Monster Imperial Pastry Stout with Kringles and Raspberries at Sugar Maple (441 E. Lincoln Ave.) from 5 to 8 p.m. The decadent brew is a collaboration between MobCraft and O’so Brewing.

There are too many New Year’s Eve events to list. Pick your favorite brewery or craft beer bar and it’s a safe bet they have something festive planned. Happy 2020!

Wednesday, Jan. 1

Hangover Brunch at The Neighborhood Draft (5921 W. Vliet St.) includes three courses paired with three beers from Third Space Brewing. One course is bananas Foster paired with Nexus of the Universe Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout. That alone might be worth the $30 cost. Brunch runs from noon to 5 p.m.

Thursday, Jan. 2

Mix your fitness resolution with a beer with a free bootcamp workout at Brewfinity Brewing (N58 W39800 Industrial Rd., Oconomowoc). The hour-long class runs from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. After it, reward yourself with a buy one, get one beer special.
