As summer races by it is stopping this week at my favorite time of the year. This Saturday is the 25th annual Great Taste of the Midwest beer festival in Madison. If you are a fan of beer this event should be on your bucket list. Breweries from all over the midwest put on a great sampling and festival. I am really looking forward to some of the Bourbon barrel aged beers that will be available. The weather looks to be outstanding and not nearly the high heat of the last 2 years. My good friend, The Professor, is having this as a send off before he departs for a oversees teaching opportunity for 5 months.
The 2nd weekend will be Irish Fest at the lakefront in Milwaukee. Relatives will be up for the event and my family takes its Irish fest very seriously. From the rope pulls to the Red Hot Chilli Pippers, fun is to be had for all. In the comment section please list your 2 favorite summer events and with my next blog I will list them with my recap from Great Taste.
