Lakefront Brewery to host 1st-ever Hot Wing Challenge

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- To celebrate National Hot Sauce Day on Wednesday, Jan. 22, Lakefront Brewery is drumming up a menu item they don't normally offer: buffalo wings! That's not all, they'll also be hosting their first-ever Hot Wing Challenge.  

The brewery announced they'll be serving five different buffalo sauces available on their own or as a flight.

Here's a breakdown of the sauces that can be paired with one of Lakefront's award-winning beers:

  • Peach BBQ paired with the Proper Porter
  • Verde Sauce paired with New Grist Gluten-free Gose
  • Buffalo Sauce paired with Lakefront Lager
  • Jamaican Jerk paired with the Kveik IPA with Mango and Guava
  • Asian Ginger paired with the New Grist Gluten-free Pilsner

According to Lakefront, sauces will be varied in spice so that all can find something to enjoy in celebration of Wilbur Scoville's favorite day of the year. Vegan breaded cauliflower will be available by request as a meat substitute.


The winning chef behind the "Best Heat" category 2 years running at WMSE's Rockabilly Chili Cook-Off is concocting their hottest, “sign this waiver” sauce. Those interested in taking the challenge will be given 5 wings covered in the sauce. They will take those wings onto the taproom stage in front of the Beer Hall audience where they will be asked rapid fire trivia questions. If the challenger can answer at least half the trivia questions right and finish the 5 wings in 5 minutes time, they will be taking home FREE beer and swag! Partake or simply witness the entertainment.
