Capital Brewery Celebrates Starkbierfest Saturday, March 14, 2015
Thursday, March 12, 2015
    Q) Where can you find one-of-a-kind beers from over a dozen different craft breweries?

    A) At the second annual Starkbierfest, held at the Capital BreweryBier Garden in Middleton, Wisconsin!

    Starkbiefest 2015 will feature fun, food, live music, and beer from thirteen different craft breweries. Music will be provided by The Red Hot Horn Dawgs. The event will be held outside in the Capital Brewery Beer Garden, so please dress accordingly (weather should be great this year!). Visit for details.

    During the Lenten season European Monks traditionally fasted and refrained from eating solid food. Hundreds of years ago Brother Barnabas and the Paulaner Monks (a great name for a band!) reasoned that while eating was forbidden, drinking was not. He brewed a batch of strong beer with a very high initial gravity. Legend has it that drinking one liter of this ‘starkbeer’ was the equivalent of eating 2 loaves of bread. This brew was quite popular with the brothers and we wager you will like it too.

    Only 500 tickets are available on-line for this event and they are available online at:
