The Oxbow Hotel and The Lakely are once again partnering up with local breweries and cheesemakers to highlight Wisconsin’s perfect pair with a crafty and artisanal outdoor celebration – the 3rd Annual Beer & Cheese Thing!
Event-goers will be treated to unlimited (yes, UNLIMITED!) samples of high-quality local and regional craft beers and award-winning aged artisanal cheeses and take home a commemorative sampling glass. Chef Eric Mendoza will be serving his famous chili – both vegetarian and carnivore options available – with a chili bar featuring all the fixins’ (extra charge applies)! Pretzel necklaces will also be available for purchase for anyone who likes to have a little crunch along with their cheese!
NEW this year, The Beer & Cheese Thing will be accompanied by an Artisan Market, featuring artists and makers from the Chippewa Valley! You’ll be able to meet the makers, explore awesome handmade items and get a head start on holiday gifting! Artist Market is FREE to attend to anyone and will be open from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Attendees are also welcome to lounge around the patio fire slabs and enjoy the live music by European folk band, Klezmazel. Yard games including kubb, bean bags, and more will also be set up throughout the afternoon.
