Madison Craft Beer Week: Kitty's Picks

So much beer, so little time!

Madison Craft Beer Week starts this Friday, May 3, and runs through May 12th. There's so much going organizers had to print a 59-page field guide just chock full of malty, hoppy, foamy fun events.

Here's my list of picks for Craft Beer Week, some quirkier than others.
 
1. CASK ALE FESTIVAL: 1-5pm Saturday May 4 at the East SIde Club on Monona Drive. Sip special cask beer from a variety of guest brewers. Two that look especially enticing to me: Common Thread, a special collaboration beer made by brewers from all 8 Madison breweries, and Hinterland Luna Stout with cocoa nibs. Tell me, who can resist cocoa nibs? ($25 in advance, $35 on Saturday). And starting at 2pm while a limited supply lasts, Triple M will be there handing out copies of Live From Studio M Volume 8.
 
2. SPRECHER PATIO GRAND OPENING: The official party goes from 2-6pm Saturday May 4 on the patio at this popular westside bar and restaurant, but there's also an event from 1-3 pm which includes unlimited samples of beers from Sprecher and other area breweries, and a brat! Tickets are $15.
 
3. MUSICAL CHAIRS WITH WIS. CRAFT BEER: The Old Fashioned on the Capitol Square has a unique spin on the childhood game Monday May 6th from 6-9pm. Walk around in a circle, and when the music stops, drink the beer in front of you, and guess which one it is. Get it wrong, and you're out. They're promising great prizes for the winner.  You're encouraged to sign up ahead of time at the bar.

4. LEINIES FEST AT BUCK AND BADGER: This two night event goes from 5-9pm May 6 and 7, and features a meatball eating contest Monday night and a corn dog eating contest Tuesday night. Lots of Leinies beers on tap and members of the Leinenkugel family will be there signing autographs. Mmmm...corn dogs.

5. BELLS LUAU ON THE LOT: Saturday May 11th Dexter's Pub is having a luau on their parking lot starting at noon, complete with lots of Bells beers on tap and a pig roast!

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi
Minnesota State, Mankato coach Todd Hoffner has been living a nightmare since last May, when he was accused of having child pornography on his work phone. If you remember, last May was also around the time Penn State head coach was fired and brought up...

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

I think my heart may have stopped beating
Dear Superstars, During last night's elimination I think my heart may have stopped beating and that would've been it's own "drive-by heartache." This competition is tough but I'm very proud for making it through the first challenge. My level of...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...

'Blood Moon' not as scary as it sounds. ~Stevi
Were you able to catch the 'blood moon' last night? It was a beautiful spectical presented by nature and the atmosphere that caused the moon to change color, ranging from bright orange to blood red. Not sure what it means or why it's such a...
