On Purpose Journey (or, as you may remember them from past fundraiser nights several years ago, Mission: Soldier Adoption) is a non-profit organization that was founded by another of our dancer friends, Mollie Manhattan, and serves to honor and support all who serve. It was an organization that Lynn supported wholeheartedly. Find more info about their mission at http://www.onpurposejourney.com/.

     

    It's Vintage Night, so get ready for some classic swing tunes! Get all gussied up with a 30s/40s/50s vintage flavor if you're feeling so inclined - if you knew Lynn, you knew how much she loved to rock an awesome hat. And, since we'll be riding on the heels of July 4th celebrations, maybe we'll even rope our WWII USO reenactor friends to break out their bevy of dance games and shenanigans for some extra fun (and when there are games, there are prizes)!

    Calendar: Events

    best place pabst milwaukee events milwaukee beer society Experimental brewingOn May 24th, Milwaukee Beer Society will be hosting our sixth Hop Showcase night. This time we’ll be drinking beers that feature newer (within the past 5 years) and/or experimental hops. Every year there is a variety of new hops making their debut across the country as a result of hop breeding.

     

    Often years in the making, many of these hops still do not have names, and instead are referred to by code names such as HBC 394 and HBC 369 (which eventually became Citra and Mosaic, respectively). We'll sample a variety of these beers using what may or may not end up being the next big hop of the future.
