What happens at the local breweries in January

Something that I thought would be pretty cool and useful to do was contact all the local breweries around town and see if they had news, beers being tapped, or events taking place they wanted to share . Most of them came back to me and this should be helpful for those of you who are looking for things to do in the city.

I call it “What’s On Tap”. It is one of the new segments for 2022. It will be a way to spread cheers and beer along with the local events at your favorite breweries.

  • CSB De Luxe – Pilsner in Czech style – 4.8%
    When it comes to lagers, it’s about the water. Our internal water filtration system enables us to recreate the incredibly soft water in Pilsen, the birthplace of Pilsner. Utilizing that water, we brew a simple beer exclusively with floor-malted Continental Pilsner malt and the freshest European-grown Saaz hops we can get our hands on, then cold fermentation and lagers for over 12 weeks and natural carbonation in the fermentation vessel. Poured from a traditional side tap directly from the Czech Republic into pint cans, resulting in the cleanest and crispiest drinking experience on this side of Bohemia.

  • “A Good Amber” – We are constantly asked if we have one on tap, so this is your standard American Amber Ale. Clean, malted and a light presence of American hops.
  • “Moningstar Melodies” a traditional Belgian Golden Strong Ale. Complex fruity esters from the yeast strain, directly from a monastery in Belgium.
  • “Summon” a massive American Imperial Stout
  • And lots of others are coming down the pipes!


  • January 10: Monday Night Art Fight Winter Slam Event: Past winners of our monthly art contest start to crown a champion of the year! 3 rounds of speed painting, with lots of challenges thrown at them during the rounds. This time the theme is CHAOS and we get a house band that adds to the chaos: local metal giants “Suffocate The Skies”. The winner of this event will be our last Friday artist for January.

  • The new fun beers we have are a Warbeard variation called Chai of the Tiger. It’s Chai tea mixed with Warbeard and it is DELICIOUS.
  • For Peach Sake is the name of our new Peach Sour. It’s not the wine’s fault, it’s literally a name (for Pete Sake)
  • MoreBeard is our second fun we’ve just released. It’s a very limited release and it’s an Imperial Warbeard. Instead of 5.5% abv it is 10.1% and it is also in tall boys.

We pick up our friends from some of the best breweries from all over the Midwest to help us raise money for mental health clinics in the Wichita area. About 26% of Americans suffer from a mental illness. We will donate proceeds from The Beer Fest to local mental health clinics to help with payments to those who cannot afford them. Each brewery brings unique beers to the event that have barely reached the Wichita area, so this is an event you will not want to miss. Our local breweries will also be present and cook fresh brews for the Beer Party. This unique and unique festival will feature breweries from Denver, St. Louis. Louis, Dallas and Iowa.
