Jimmy the Brewmaster's Doppelbock continues to ferment. Time passes slowly. Good things happen when we wait. Great things happen when we wait longer. Release party mid-November!

Badgers on Saturday. Packers on Sunday. Come down to City Lights and watch the games and share in the excitement. Free 5 ounce pour of your choice of refreshing City Lights beers after each quarter if the Badgers are leading on Saturday. And Sunday, celebrate each Packer touchdown with a complimentary 5 ounce pour of the beer of your choice. Game days at City Lights rock.

RIP Tom Petty. Tom was one of my all-time favorites and a classical classic rock artist. (And adieu to his “one-up-man-ship” alter egos Tom Pettier and Tom Pettiest.)

It will be an exciting weekend at City Lights. Friday night, the incredible Cosmic Strings take to the stage at 7:30. Check them out here: https://www.facebook.com/cosmicstringsmusic/ . The Cosmic Strings are a Jam-Folk Trio featuring talented musicians Emma Bee, Spencer Houghton and Tyler Willenbrink. Their songs are a combination of covers, collaborations and original tunes.  You will love them!

Get your bend and brew ready when Kaleigh Atkinson brings her “Pilates in Public” series to City Lights. Join us for a complimentary one-hour mat Pilates and Yoga session beginning at noon on Saturday – followed by a complimentary beer for all participants.

And you haven’t celebrated Oktoberfest if you haven’t partied with Tom Brusky and his high-energy and highly entertaining polka band. Tom and his bandmates take the stage Saturday on 7:30. And remember, your first beer is on the tent if you are styling lederhosen or a dirndl. Prost! Stein holding contest?

With proper planning and preparation, spontaneity can be fun!

Jimmy the Brewmaster is collaborating with the coffee-whisperers at Stone Creek https://www.stonecreekcoffee.com/ for his next brewing endeavor – a Coffee Stout. I will connect with those of you who correctly predicted Coffee Stout for your complimentary growler fill when the delicious brew is ready to be tapped.

September was a record month for City Lights!  If you enjoyed our beers in the City Lights taproom, at your favorite drinking establishment or restaurant, or in the comfort of your home thanks to one of our valued retail partners, our sincerest gratitude. And a special shout-out to our incredible distributor network for making this all possible. We are so appreciative for the privilege of our partnership.

Cheers. Peace.
