December Ale Jail Tastings

In addition to their regular Tuesday Tastings, the Ale Jail is lining up some other special events this month. Unless otherwise noted, all tastings take place from 5pm – 7pm.

This month is bloated full of Wisconsinites!  What can we say, they make good beer therefore they earn their right-full place at the Jail.  Rush River and Furthermore kick off a month of tasty treats with back-to-back tastings on the 7th and 8th.  On the 14th we go to Mexico.  Yeah yeah I’ve heard it before, many have the stereotypical view point that Mexican beer is adjunct heavy horse pee.  Well, for the most part it’s true, EXCEPT for Cucapah.  One of Mexico’s only CRAFT brewers.  They make a very credible Pale Ale and an interesting and conversation inducing brown ale.  Why not give it a go?

Do you stroll through the Ale Jail and ever wonder about all those scary big bottles?  Or maybe that brewery that you can’t quit pronounce?  No need to be intimidated!  These beers are some of the best in the world and they deserve your attention.  Stop in the store on Saturday, December 18th for a truly epic beer tasting.  Many rare and obscure beers will be open for your enjoyment.

Ever wanted to try a wind brewed beer?  Stop in on the 21st and say hello to Dave Anderson from Dave’s Brewfarm.  He brews damn good beer and it’s earth friendly.  Maybe he’ll bring one of his pilot brews straight from the tasting room.  Dandelion Saison maybe?  Better stop by and check it out.  Matacabras and Select will be open for sure.

Lift Bridge brewery rounds out the month with there tasty line-up of locally brewed beer.  Steve from the brewery will be in the shop helping all of you rediscover your forgotten summer love of Farm Girl Saison.  Don’t miss it!
