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 cool thing about Coastal Carolina's coach

World's Worst iPod: England Dan and John Ford Coley "We'll Never Have to Say Goo
