Brew Exchange with Lakeside (Wisconsin)
Our Stranded Coconut beer is drifting to Milwaukee, Wisconsin! The connection to this wonderful cheese and beer-filled state is through our Drifter sales legend, Zan, who hails from there. While studying in Milwaukee, Zan also worked at Lakefront Brewery - a microbrewery located on the Milwaukee River that is currently celebrating it's 30th year in business.
A couple of months ago, Lakefront's head brewer, Ross, got in touch with Zan because he was planning a trip to South Africa -- which is when the ideas started churning about doing a brew exchange. In early September, the famous Lakefront Eastside Dark Lager was brewed at Drifter and then two weeks later Nick flew to Milwaukee to brew our Stranded Coconut Ale on their system.
We're excited for our South African folk to taste the delicious Eastside Dark Lager in November's League of Beers mixed case!
