We’re getting ready for Bar Bites Beer Bash, our annual walk-around beer tasting, on Monday, August 27. This event is more like a party than a sit-down dinner, although we’re serving BKC Bites from food pairing stations to match the myriad styles of beer on sample.
We’re particularly excited for some breweries joining the Bash for the first time. Founders will be in the house for the first time! Dogfish Head will also be represented for the first time. Ballast Point, Tyranena, Great Lakes, Indeed, and Uinta/Fair State are in. Return samplers include Lakefront, Central Waters, Deschutes, and Bell’s, and we might get one or two more based on space.
This year, we’ve introduced special early bird pricing: tickets are just $45 until August 19. After that date (or on the day-of if we’re not sold out) tickets are the full price of $55. Tickets include beer tastings, pairing bites, tax and gratuity. Get your tickets here:

We have three familiar varietals for our Free Friday Tasting this week — Cab, Chard, Sauv Blanc — and one seriously fun Spanish red — Montsant! We’re trying them from 4-6 p.m. today. We’ll be back pouring samples of the same on Saturday, 12-3 p.m.
Niner, Chardonnay, Edna Valley, CA 2015 — This is from a spot just 3 miles from the Pacific Ocean, and it has plenty of coastal personality and balance. Silky body with warm bread, stone fruit, and caramel. The winemakers stirred up the lees while it was in the barrel (about a 1/3 of which were New French Oak), which amplifies cream notes and pear flavor. Regularly $19; Special Tasting Price $16.
Tangent, Sauvignon Blanc, Edna Valley, CA 2014 — Definitely worth a shot if you like French and New Zealand style Sauvignon Blancs and want to branch out a little. You’re in the ballpark of green apple and grapefruit, lime and lemon zest. Slightly herbal, mineral finish. Like high-end athletic clothes, you’re going to want it on a hot day. Shop $13.
Llenca Plana, Montsant, Spain 2016 — Made from Carignan and Grenache, just like the much more expensive Priorat region, this has a medium body but is still quite powerful. Red and dark fruits, good acidity, and a long-lasting finish. Just plain fun to drink. Shop $16.
Alias, Cabernet Sauvignon, California 2016 — Great for when you just gotta grab a Cab. Quaffable. Medium body, dark berry fruit, violet color. A straightforward oaky Cabernet, it’s a meat-and-potatoes selection, and a no-brainer pairing for… meat and potatoes. Shop $10.
Join us for dinner on Tuesday, June 26, to support Stepping Stone Farms, a non-profit horse rescue and therapeutic facility in Franksville that serves the needs of people in the South East Wisconsin area.

We’ll also feature a “wine pull” – one mixed mystery case of red wine, and one mixed mystery case of white wine, available for $20 per bottle. You get what you grab, if you’re enjoying it here or at home, while supply lasts. Wine pull proceeds go entirely to Stepping Stone Farms.
