Lakefront Brewery Black Friday: 3 different beers available for purchase

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Lakefront Brewery is bringing back Black Friday beer. 

The brewery will open at 8 a.m. Friday, Nov. 26, but Lakefront will start the party early with the CurdWagon -- their food truck -- serving food at 5:30 a.m. Food items include breakfast burritos and croissant sandwiches, apple fritters and almond kringles.

Three different Black Friday beers will be available for purchase:

  • 2021 Black Friday Imperial Stout – Deep and rich, chocolate and vanilla, with bourbon warmth and American oak notes. This year is smooth, not hot, although is boasts a 15.5% alcohol by volume. Less than 4,000 bottles available.
  • 2021 Imperial Brown Ale – This was made with Montmorency cherries and aged in Wollersheim Distillery bourbon barrels. Need a fur coat for the cold? This liquid will do perfectly. 14.6% alcohol by volume. Less than 1,000 bottles available.
  • 2021 Holiday Spice Ale – This big ale was brewed with honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and orange peel. Aged in brandy barrels, this liquid is 13% alcohol by volume. Less than 1,000 bottles available

Packaged in 4-packs, each bottle sells for $20 (limited to 16 bottles per person).

“We’re inviting everyone to come on down and enjoy the camaraderie, and the beer, of course,” says Lakefront Brewery Founder and President Russ Klisch. “The rules are a little different, but the event will be the same fun.”

Fans can line up as early as the night before and the doors will open at 8:00am on Friday. But after bottle purchase, the party will be outside.

“We want to avoid a super-crowded Beer Hall,” said Lakefront Brand Manager Michael Stodola. “We’re still concerned with Covid, so the party will continue outside with food, gear, and Lakefront beer being sold – and over a thousand close friends.”

All Lakefront Brewery Black Friday beers are first come, first served.
