12. Milwaukee Gin Aged O-GII Imperial Wit ¼ bbl keg – 9.2% ABV, 24 IBU 3.68 Untappd. Created by brewer Kurt Mayes, O-Gii is a collaboration with Milwaukee’s own Rishi Tea, infusing Asian character to this monster wheat beer. The name is a nod to the brewing abbreviation OG, which defines the potential for alcohol level prior to fermentation. $7/snifter

13. New Glarus Brewing Company Belgian Red ¼ bbl keg – You hold the marriage of wine and beer. Belgian Red is a tapestry of flavor. This ale is brewed with whole Montmorency Cherries, Wisconsin farmed wheat and Belgian roasted barleys, balanced by hops we aged in our brewery one full year, and then aged in oak vats. Over a pound of Door County Cherries in every bottle makes this ale uniquely “Wisconsin.” So unique, in fact, that we applied for a patent. Expect this ale to be ruby red, with a medium body that is highly carbonated and intense with cherry flavor and bouquet. Serve your friends Belgian Red in a brandy snifter or champagne flute and toast life with ale from the land of Wisconsin. $7/pint

Backups if any tap brews run out: Littleport Gutbuster Strong Scotch Ale – Deeply malty, with a bit of caramel flavor, while some will detect a peaty, earthy and/or smoky aroma from the addition of peated malt.
