The Beer & Cheese Thing

Sunday Sep. 9th, 2018 | 2-6pm

The Beer & Cheese Thing is a crafty and artisanal outdoor celebration of Wisconsin’s perfect pair. Eat and drink UNLIMITED samples of high quality local craft brews and award-winning aged artisanal cheeses, and take home a commemorative sampling glass. Pretzel necklaces will also be available to purchase for a nominal fee.
Lounge at the patio fire slabs and listen to the fun and eclectic live European folk music of Klezmazel. There will be yard games including kubb, bean bags, and more. A full list of featured breweries and the cheese-makers will be announced soon.
At the conclusion of the event, join us to view the first Green Bay Packers regular season game against the Chicago Bears on the projector inside The Lakely, and in The Gallery. Kickoff is at 7:20pm, and Chef Nathan Berg has crafted a special tailgate menu just for the occasion. The tailgate menu will be available to order from starting at 6pm.
It’s football season folks, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with beer, cheese, and the Packers.
