Coming JANUARY 2023
Every year, we brew one of the most famous styles of German beer–the Bock. To celebrate, we throw a huge party dubbed ChewBOCKa Fest!
In the 18th century, monks brewed this rich, bready beer for sustenance during their long Lenten fast. The first time we brewed ours, it came out big, burly, and chewy, and rightfully dubbed it ChewBOCKa. A beer this good deserves a day all it’s own to celebrate, so every February we throw our annual ChewBOCKa Fest!
We always offer a special package deal for the day which includes a commemorative mug, a free beer, and $1 off refills all day long. Beyond the beer, we have a multitude of activities and entertainment spread throughout our taproom, outdoor beer garden, and packaging area spaces. Enjoy live music throughout the day, including the best polka band in town to kick things off. Compete for prizes in our stein holding competition and Chewbacca call contest. Yes, it’s exactly what you think–step up to the microphone and belt out your best impersonation of Chewbacca. The crowd will judge who’s best!
We also have a hot poker station where we (safely) dunk a red hot poker into your mug of ChewBOCKa. The heat caramelizes the residual sugars in the beer to create a one-of-a-kind delightful treat. Finally, we always have a food truck on-site all day to satisfy your hunger. We hope you can join us!
