Craft Beer Week Picks

Madison's Craft Beer Week looks like it will be ten days filled with frothy fun.

Bars, liquor stores, and even a grocery store or two are getting in on the action, with lots of great beer tasting events happening May 4th-13th.

I went through the list of activities, and picked out some that I think will definitely be worth checking out.

Friday 5/4
Tipsy Cow (downtown Madison). 7pm-close.Guess the mystery tap beer, and you may win fabulous prizes. They will also have beers available from Central Waters Brewery, and a rep from this central Wisconsin brewery will be on hand to answer questions. All the beers I've tried from this brewery, located in Amherst, have been delicious!

Saturday 5/5
7:30am-1pm  Stalzy's Deli on Atwood Avenue will be serving up a  3-course beer breakfast. Beer from Tyranena in Lake Mills. Beer. It's what's for breakfast.

Sunday 5/6
11am-close. Founders Brewery will take over 8 to 10 taps at Dexters.  I'm sure I've tried beers from this Grand Rapids brewery at the Great Taste, but I just might need a refresher course.

Monday 5/7
7-10pm Old Chicago on the west side will have their taps taken over by Port Huron Brewery. This is a new brewery in Wisconsin Dells. I haven't tried any of their beers yet, but this looks like a good opportunity. While you're there, get on the World Beer Tour. You get cool prizes just for trying different beers.

Tuesday 5/8
5pm-10pm Dark Fiery and Sensual, A Night of Dark Beer Delights. Make a trip to the dark side and try some porters, stouts, and the like. One that sounds interesting: Ommegang Seduction, a Belgian style chocolate ale with cherry notes.

Wednesday 5/9
4-11pm A free shuttle bus will take you to and from 7 different downtown and eastside bars.

Thursday 5/10
7pm-close Head over to Sprecher Restaurant and Brewery for $3. Sprecher President Jeff Hamilton will be guest bartender.

Friday 5/11
5-8pm  Head to Maduro for Tall Grass-Gail Ambrosius Chocolate Night. Try beers from Tall Grass Brewery in Kansas paired with yummy local chocolate.

Saturday 5/12
2pm-close. Bells Circus. Dexters will have beer from Bells Brewery flowing from 15 taps, plus a circus outside with game and a dunk tank. If you want the carousel, you'll have to walk a few blocks over to Ella's.

Sunday 5/13
2-6pm at Demetral Park across from Oscar Mayer, it's the Brewer's Olympics with a beer server obstacle course, grain sack races and more. Bring your own craft beer and watch the entertainment.

The problem with holiday sweaters--and it's not that they're ugly
Holiday sweaters--oh we love to mock them! Ugly holiday sweater parties have become so mainstream that I feel they are no longer ironic. But that's not what I'm going to gripe about. My problem is that ugly holiday sweaters are now becoming...

Marshall's Top Albums of 2014
1. U2- Songs of Innocence: One of my favorite English poets is, William Blake. Jim Morrison of the Doors was so inspired by Blake's poetry, he used one of Blake's lines, "the doors of perception," to name the Doors….the Doors! So, this U2 album,...

World's Worst iPod: Carl Douglas "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting"
It's hard to believe a novelty song like this went all the way up the charts to number one---but it did, and actually stayed there for two weeks! It seemed most everyone, excluding our meteorologist Brian Olson wanted to hear this song, which came...

Kitty's Top Albums of 2014
10. George Ezra: Wanted On Voyage This 21 year old sings, writes all his own songs and plays guitar bass and keyboards. And his music is beautiful, haunting and old beyond his years. In addition to the hit "Budapest", I loved the haunting "Did you...

Jeff the Promo Guy's Top 2014 Picks
2014 had a ton of great new album releases, and I easily came up with more than 10 to reference. I would have loved to include The Fray, Angus & Julia Stone, Bleachers, Alt-J, and George Ezra… but they just didn't make it on my Top 10 list. Here...
