Best of the Midwest 2: Electric Kegaloo at Bier Station this Saturday

Bier Station continues to amaze me. For the second year running, they're putting together a mini-festival that has a tap list that rivals full fledged festival lineups. And you don't even need a ticket to get in. Their Best of the Midwest 2: Electric Kegaloo is this Saturday, Dec 27 from 11a to closing time. Each beer will be served in regular or short 4 oz pours (but no flights). You can grab two 4 oz pours at once to speed up the tasting process. Bier Station is encouraging people to come anytime throughout the day to spread out the crowds. Last year most of the kegs lasted late through the day. And no matter when you come, there will be excellent beer in store for you.

So once you've left the joy and stress of the holidays behind, why not wind down with some excellent beers? And if you haven't left the holidays behind, and you're going to your 3rd or 4th Christmas celebration, why not get a little buzzed beforehand on some craft beer. That makes any holiday celebration better!

Merry Christmas, crafties!
