North Park Oktoberfest Beer Crawl
Participants must visit each of the four taprooms, which are all within 0.3 mile of each other, during the window of 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. and try each brewery’s beer or food special; that earns you a punch on a special punch card. Those who complete the card will be entered into the raffle for the prize package.
Punch cards may be picked up (and dropped off once completed) at any of the four locations.
Black Plague (2899 University Avenue) - $4 Prince of Bavaria Oktoberfest Ale OR $12 Oktoberfest Ale with Gourmet Bratwurst Dog
Bottlecraft (3007 University Avenue) - $10 Flight of Oktoberfest beers (Ayinger Oktoberfest-Märzen, Enegren Oktoberfest, Eppig Festbier, Weihenstephaner Festbier)
Original 40 (3117 University Avenue) - $5 Lager OR $6 Brat Sandwich
Second Chance (4045 30th Street) - $5 Buddy Lager OR $10 Charcuterie Box
Info about the four locations:
Black Plague took over the space formerly occupied by Rouleur Brewing at the corner of University and 29th. It is adjacent to North Park Theatre and has a full kitchen that features Wisconsin Cheese Curds, sandwiches, and burgers.
Bottlecraft is a beer shop and tasting room with an extensive selection of hard-to-find beers from around the world. But unbeknownst to many, it also has 12 taps with rotating draft beers, along with a seating area to enjoy the beverages.
Original 40 is named after the original 40-acre parcel of land that became modern-day North Park. Its head brewer Zack Kaplan is a six-time Great American Beer Festival (GABF) winner, taking home two Gold Medals, one Silver Medal, and three Bronze Medals at the event often referred to as “The Oscars” of the craft beer industry.
Second Chance is the award-winning “Seize a Pint, Save a Pup” brewery that raises funds for local dog rescues. Since its 2015 opening, Second Chance has donated more than $400,000 to local dog rescues and has facilitated new homes for more than 160 dogs through adoption events at its tasting rooms.
