Thursday night is sometimes a better night to go out than Friday or Saturday. Places are less crowded and let’s face it, this is when the cool people hang. Keeping this in mind we have a few events planned tonight, including tastings, giveaways and a tap takeover. So if you’re in Shorewood, Germantown, Lomira or Port Washington, stop in and enjoy.
