Long before I even thought of opening up Garth’s Brew Bar on Monroe Street, I was impressed with the number of places on the street that had ties to beer.
Walk into a coffee shop and they have beer available. Pick up a pizza and enjoy a beer with it. Head to Mystery To Me and get a beer-themed puzzle. Drop in to Orange Tree Imports and come out with a Wisconsin-themed beer glass…
The list can truly go on and on – and at the same time I realized this, Atwood neighborhood had coordinated a beer festival and I thought to myself, how great would it be if Monroe Street had a Craft Beer Week?
And here we are, celebrating the inaugural Monroe Street Craft Beer Week, November 8th through November 14th with more than half a dozen merchants on the street participating with their own events and specials, listed below.
