Hoppy Day!

30th July 2012

Dark and Hoppy

Ohhh, hoppiness! International IPA Day is this Thursday, August 2nd, and we’re partying at Sprecher.  So, what’s in it for you? A FREE 22oz bottle of Black IPA if you purchase something at our Gift Shop and you’re of legal drinking age.

Both Thursday and Friday, get $2 off growlers of Black IPA, IPA2 and Ryediculous.  Live large and cheers the moment!

 

It’s been a marathon but we’re ready for the 2012 Wisconsin State Fair.  Here’s an idea of Sprecher-related events at Sprecher Landing (near SpinCity), Root Beer Everywhere (near Apollo’s) and elsewhere.

Friday, August 3:  Join us at the Central Mall for our 4th Grilling with Beer Contest. Cheer on your favorite grillmeister as they vie for fame and prizes noon-3pm. Then stay tuned for something you might want enter: the Brat eating contest. And afterwards: the Root Beer Float drinking contest (ages 16 and under).

Starting Thursday, August 2nd at Sprecher Landing (near  SpinCity) you’ll find 11 award-winning Sprecher Beers (on tap and in bottles); draft root beer; Sprecher beer pretzels on a stick, Special Amber sorbet, 3 Sprecher beer sorbet lollipops (on a stick, of course); root beer cookies on a stick and more, including FREE live entertainment and appearances by the Milwaukee Wave.  Here’s the schedule:
