Lakefront Brewery: Fixed Gear Red Ale Mar 22, 2010

When I first saw this at Cog Magazine‘s ( @cogmag ) blog, I thought it was a joke. Then I read their post and followed the link to Lakefront Brewery‘s homepage. Sure enough, it’s a legitimate beer that’s brewed blocks from Cog’s headquarters. When I was in Milwaukee, I had Lakefront’s Wheat Monkey and it was pretty damn good. I’m sure their Fixed Gear Red Ale hits the marker too.

Peter from Cog brought a few cases with him from Milwaukee this weekend. They were handing them out at the Bench Minor polo tournament here in NYC and I picked up a bottle. It’s sitting in my fridge at home. I’m still trying to decide to drink it or to keep it around for a bit. Knowing me, the second my Budweiser is gone, I’ll crack open the bottle. If you’re in Milwaukee, make sure to tour the Lakefront Brewery. I’m sure it’s well worth it!

    Fixed Gear Ale is hands down one of the best brews that Lakefront makes, second only to the brilliant Riverwest Stein. Word from a source inside Lakefront says that people are buying the Fixed Gear as fast as they can make it. Good job Lakefront!

  • No one noticed the bum sleeping in the background.


  • You should give your Budweiser to that bum in the picture.
