Above Ground Pool Party 2019!

Fans of lagers, backyard cookouts, and above ground pools REJOICE - the return of Madison Craft Beer Week also brings about the return of our annual Above Ground Pool Party...this time featuring 10+ lagers, a brand new collaboration beer, and delicious grilled food from the WDBC kitchen!

The party itself stems from the return of our incredibly-sessionable 3.5% 'Above Ground Pool' Premium American Light Lager - and while we might not have an actual pool on premises, we're sure as heck gonna party with this killer lager lineup:
- 'Above Ground Pool' Premium American Light Lager
- 'Hindsight' Pilsner
- 'Ain't Bad' Vienna Lager
- WDBC Maibock
- WDBC Imperial Red Lager
- Collaborative DDH India Pale Lager brewed with 1840 Brewing Company (!!)
- New Glarus Brewing Co. 'Totally Naked' Wisconsin Lager
- Lakefront Brewery 'Riverwest Stein' Amber Lager
- Full Mile Beer Co. & Kitchen 'Danger Close' Rye Lager
- Capital Brewery and Bier Garten Blonde Doppelbock
- Wisconsin Brewing Company guest lager

And for those of you looking for something non-lagered, we'll have:
- Our next limited batch of DDH 'Pulp Culture' Hazy IPA
- The malty-yummy goodness that is 'Seeing Single' Belgian Abbey Ale
- The absolutely scrummy Pale Weizenbock from Giant Jones Brewing Company
- And as always, we'll have one of Alt Brew's local gluten-free beers at the ready

As for the cookout-inspired menu, our fantastic WDBC kitchen will be showcasing some delicious pool party specials, including local brats and hot dogs + house-made potato salad and coleslaw *plus* a meal combo for those of you looking to take in the pool party for all it's worth!

Want more? We'll also have a massive 5' x 12' art installation entitled 'Above Ground Pool' in the house thanks to our good friend and local artist, Eric Thomas - so even if we can't get a real pool, we'll have a huge painting inspired by one!

BEST YET: we're bringing back our *commemorative Above Ground Pool Party glassware* - and you can grab a Pool Party glass filled with 'Above Ground Pool' for just $10 - with $1 off all your full pours of lagers throughout the duration of the event!!!!....!!!!!!!!

This party will once again serve as both our farewell to MCBW and our welcoming party for the warm weather we've all been waiting for...and we'll look forward to seeing you at the pool (party)!
