Tuesday, April 13, 2021
4:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Something is going down this Tuesday April 13 from 4pm to 7pm at the Washburn Taphouse of the Southshore Brewery. It’s time for another Old-Time Happy Hour with... The Masked Ramblers?
We’re not sure who these folks are (they wear masks for goodness sake!), but we do know that the Southshore Brewery is going to provide space and refreshment, the Masked Ramblers will create an old-time atmosphere, and you’re going to enjoy a chance to get out in an uncrowded and safe environment at the Washburn Taphouse.
Stop by for a great brew or two and an old-time tune or three from 4pm to 7pm this Tuesday April 13. Bring take out from local establishments or carry in your eats because food pairs well with beer. The Washburn Taphouse carries ten choices of flagship, specialty, and seasonal beers, plus ever so often an experimental beverage. You can get South Shore beers as flights, pints, growler fills, and our newest addition, "Cans 2 Go". Well-behaved dogs can also join you here, both outdoors in our grassy area and indoors on a leash. It’s all at 532 W Bayfield St in Washburn WI.
