BrauFest 2009

From the Lucanites at Brau Bros:

It’s Official, BrauFest 2009 will take place June 5th and 6th right here in Lucan! 


We will offer on-site camping right at the brewery for the weekend!  In order to keep the weekend safe and fun, we’ll have spots to park your tent or camper.  Please RSVP so that we can plan accordingly.  We look forward to having you as our guests.  We encourage homebrewers to bring their best to share on Friday night around the campfires.  Of course we’ll offer kegs and casks of Brau Beer, including the local favorite, Old 56.  Brewery tours and hopyard tours will be available.  The hops are up, the brewery pond is being dug, and barley looks great; we can’t wait to show them off!


On Saturday night, a terrific local band, Hicktown Mafia will play a free street dance about a block from the brewery.  The BrauHaus (the birthplace of Brau Beer) will be serving pints and awesome food. 


We also can’t wait to show off Lucan’s newest addition.  The Lucan Locker has reopened in sweet new digs, only a stumble from the brewery.  Karen will be open Saturday with specials and samples.  I can personally attest to the quality; you can only get this kind of meat in a small town locker.  If you have a mixed couples slow pitch team, entry into the weekend’s tourney is a mighty $30.  Brau Brothers will sponsor any team that participates from over 50 miles away based on this blast.  Our local Lions Organization keeps a beer wagon (stocked with Brau Beer) next to the ball field.  This is a great event celebrating the traditions and history of small town brewing.  We look forward to seeing you here in Lucan, and we especially encourage those outside the greater Lucan metropolitan area to join us for the weekend.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email me or call the brewery.  As always, there will be plenty of free parking in Lucan. Take care,  Dustin Brau Brewer, CEO

    what is Old 56?

  2. ryan says:

    I’m guessing maybe it was a Brauhaus recipe from back when the Brauhaus was a brewpub?

    Sounds like fun. If only my step-brother weren’t getting married!

  3. Dustin Brau says:

    You have to show up to find out.

    Belly flop contest in the new pond? (if it’s complete)

  4. Cecil says:

    Boulevard makes, Bob’s 57 beer. I bet this must be the highway, Old 56, that Bob drove down in ’57, to get to Lucan. Yes, that comment is absurd.

  5. Matt says:

    Too bad I’ll be fishing in Canada. Oh well, maybe next year, unless it is always the same weekend.

  6. Dustin Brau says:

    Old 56 is named after a fire truck on the Lucan Fire Dept that was in service until a couple years ago. I believe it only has about 1400 miles on it.

  7. David Berg says:

    1400 mile in Lucan? That truck must be 1,000,000 years old!

  8. Jason B says:

    It (Old 56) was either going to be that or a train. It reminded me of “Wreck of the Old ’97” by Johnny Cash.

  9. Jason B says:

    Correction – not “by” Johnny Cash, but “as sung by”.
