    best place pabst milwaukee events winter whales brewfest 0944Drink Brew City -- a collection of Milwaukee craft breweries, is excited to bring you their inaugural Winter Beer Festival -- Winter Whales.

Breweries will be strewn about the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery by way of cardinal direction. Whether you head North, South, East, or West, you'll find all the breweries you've grown to love or recently fell in love with. Heck, it might even be love at first taste at this thing. Mingle with brewery representatives throughout the fest and enjoy beers in a limited, fest-exclusive Winter Whales sample glass.

    Food will be available in each "neighborhood" from a different vendor that calls Milwaukee their home.

    EVENT TIMING:
    11:00AM | VIP Session (Limit 100)
    (meet the brewery owners and get first crack at the whales)
    12:00PM - 4:00PM | GA Session 1 (Limit 200)

    best place pabst milwaukee events shakespeare raw a christmas carol

    "If I could work my will, Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart." Come on, don't be such a Scroo- Hey! Is that where that comes from?

     

    MERRY CHRISTMAS BARDFLIES! Yes, we're stepping outside of our usual MO and applying our delightful shenanigans to that beloved holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol". But, we are still us, so we will be doing it in the "RAW" style you also know and love.

     

    "But I'm not familiar with the play" you say. Well, first, how? Second, here's the gist: During the Victorian era, stingy and cranky Ebenezer Scrooge, who hates Christmas, loses his partner Marley on Christmas Eve. For seven years, he runs his business exploiting his employee Bob Cratchit, and spends a bitter treatment to his family and acquaintances. However, that particular Christmas Eve he is visited by the doomed ghost of Marley who reveals that three spirits will visit him that night. The first one, the spirit of past Christmas, recalls his miserable youth; the spirit of the present Christmas shows him the poor situation of Bob's family; and the spirit of future Christmas shows his fate.

    The question is, can or is he willing to change?

     

    The location? Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery! Yes, there's no place like home for the holidays; so to wrap up this series, we're heading home. And not only will this be our last show of the year, but Saturday will also be our company Christmas party! So hang out with us after the show for a good time of music, dancing, and things we'll most likely have to apologize for on Monday!

     

    And this show is 100% Free. Consider it a Christmas gift to you the audience. But we will still be passing the hat, but it's not for us. As this is the season of giving, all the money collected will go to the "Sojourner Family Peace Center" here in Milwaukee.

     

    "And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!"
