Wauktoberfest Beer Tasting


The 4th annual Wauktoberfest started off with rain, but that didn't scare away festival or beerfest attendees. In fact, there was a good turnout at the beerfest held on the Endres Manufacturing Grounds. Many Madison breweries and brewpubs showed up, including Vintage Brewing Company, Ale Asylum, and Capital Brewery. I myself was working one of the beer tables as a volunteer and happened to have Vintage Brewing Company's own Scott serving out the libations "next door". As a result of this stroke of luck, I was able to try Vintage's 7% ABV Pumpkin Disorderly Spiced Ale, their Octoberfest, and their Barleywine.
