    MIDDLETON, WI – Want to support bats on Halloween eve? A special Bat-Oberfest brew will be on tap as Capital Brewery Co., Inc. hosts a Halloween pre-party to raise awareness and money for work to conserve Wisconsin bats.

    The Capital Brewery Bier Stube, 7734 Terrace Ave., Middleton, opens at 3pm on October 28th and the party starts at 5pm. Beverages and snacks will be available for purchase and costumes are encouraged. This is a 21 and over event.

    A portion of proceeds from the sale of Bat-Oberfest beer between October 28 and October 30 will be donated to the Wisconsin Bat Conservation Fund, an endowment fund managed by the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, to support research, monitoring, and protection efforts for Wisconsin’s native bat species.

    A special showing of the film “Battle for Bats,” documenting the race against the clock to save bats from white-nose syndrome will be featured. The deadly disease does not affect people but has killed up to 6 million bats in the eastern United States since 2006 and is closing in on Wisconsin bats.

    “Bats are a big part of Halloween fun and this opportunity is a way people can learn more about bats and give back to them,” says Paul White, who leads the Department of Natural Resource’s bat program. “Bats need our help more than ever, and we appreciate the partnership with Capital Brewery and the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin to offer people a fun way to help an important cause.”

    Bat-Oberfest is the sixth installment in Capital’s Sustainability Series of beer offerings.

    MIDDLETON, WI - Capital Brewery has teamed up with local radio station, 105.5 Triple M for their first annual Block Party! Taking place on Saturday 10/08/16 from 12:00-8:00pm at Capital Brewery and the surrounding parking lot and street featuring Capital Brewery beer, nationally and internationally recognized musicians and bands along with some local food favorites, this is a Fall fest that you won't want to miss.

    Tickets are available for $10 in advance online (link below) and just $12 at the door on the day of the event. The weather is shaping up to be a beautiful Fall day, so grab your tickets ahead of time at the following link an you'll save yourself a few bucks.

    Music from Cobi, Eliot Sumner, Natty Nation and Mascot Theory. We will be starting the day off at 12 noon with Capital Brewery beer and food from Nitty Gritty, Papa Murphy's, and Bob's BBQ Emporium. At 1:00pm the music kicks off with Mascot Theory! These guys take after bands like Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers and Dawes with a clean Americana vibe. Adding to their eclectic sound, they just release a new Nashville-recorded album, Hand Me Down Miracles and the follow up EP, Esperanto. Then stick around for the second act of the evening, Natty Nation. A collective of musicians from Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago & Minneapolis lead by JAH Boogie & musical director, Aaron Konkol. The independent, all original, touring and recording outfit is one of the original forces in USA based reggae. Later in the evening we have Eliot Sumner and Cobi, two rising stars in the music biz. Eliot Sumner, the child of Sting and Actress/Producer Trudie Styler, is a very talented young musician. Growing up with these two parents, you would expect good, if not great. But Sumner exceeded expectations with their debut solo album, Information. This album features a serene mix of Pop, Punk and Electronica. To close out the Block Party, we have our headliner, Cobi. The young solo artist (formerly of Gentlemen Hall) is a smooth as butter vocalist that could be compared to Adam Levine of Maroon 5. Cobi focuses on the pop genre with a R&B Hybrid twist that sets him apart melodically and lyrically. His debut single, “Don’t You Cry For Me” has blasted him into the national spotlight. This may be your last chance to see him before he’s selling out stadiums across the world.
