Madison Craft Beer Week presents a very special Kick-Off Celebration featuring cask ale on Saturday, May 2, 2014. Starting at 1pm and conveniently located at the East Side Club on Monona Dr. (3735 Monona Dr, Madison, WI - near Olbrich Botanical Gardens). Special guest brewers will help us pour just for you! For the price of admission you get not only unlimited samples of dozens of special releases and cask ales and a fancy glass to drink out of, but the soothing sounds of Classical Revolution's brass quintet performing traditional bierhall and drinking songs. The Eastside Club provides a nice large space that is comfortable for both indoor and outdoor settings, good weather or bad. Come chill by the lake, drink some special cask beer and listen to some great music! This year's music is The North Westerns, a wonderful old school jazz and western swing trio (and sometimes quartet). Advance tickets are $30 and $40 at the door. Purchase tickets from Brown Paper Tickets. Designated Driver Admission (special sodas from Sprecher and water) is just $10 at the door.
