This will be the first time I'm hanging out in Madison on Friday evening instead of at a friends house, and curious what folks will be up to.
Central Water's is at Lucille again. Perennial @ Brasserie V.
Join us in bringing a little bit of the Mitten to Madison as we tap a heaping handful of beers from a few of our favorite Michigan breweries in anticipation of the Great Taste of the Midwest.

Came here for this info. No need to do any more research. Not waiting in mile long lines at preposterous prices for <insert whatever is hot like TG was (still is?) last year here>. Done and done.
We went to the hop cat late last year for dinner. Were not disappointed. Vertical of founders stouts and pepperoni rolls. Great wind down to the day.
Maybe it won't be so crazy now that TG isn't taking the place over... I might just head there to check out some of these Indeed beers...
the Malt House is typically pretty chill as well... they're doing an O'so takeover:
Liquid Soul 2016
Plum Tamarind Groove
Barrel-aged Hibiscus Saison

Funk Factory's Pre GTMW Party on Friday:
Transient Artisan Ales
Starting to get some updates on the official webpage as well.
How do we acquire vip treatment? Last year's crowd was rough.
I'm hopeful between the tap room being open and the guest brewers it won't be so crazy. Plus I hear AleWatcher is going so he'll attract most of the crowd to his aura.
Know a guy, who knows a guy...

Kind of a cool graphic that isn't exactly complete, but gives a lot of information.
2017 program, map and app are out.
Rev killing it with that list.
So what are people thinking for Friday? I'm currently throwing this out there as a tentative plan for my 1st timer buddy that is coming. But, lol plans for GTMW Friday.
New Glarus at 10ish>Madison by noon; hit the bars around the Square (Lucille's for Central Waters, Maduro for Bell's, Argus for FFF, maybe Essen Haus for Rev, etc.) > Funk Factory around 3 or 4 > dinner somewhere downtown > grab another one or 2 for an early night cap. Maybe get up to Malt House for the O'so event at some point.
