On Saturday, February 19th, Pearl Street Brewery will be celebrating their 23rd Annual Winter Ball. The event will include live music, food from Monkey Business Food Truck, craft beverages, as well as offerings from Turisimo Winery & Fermentation.
Last year, it was called the “Snow Ball” because it was held outside in the snow and under the stars. The year before it was the “Beach Ball” with grass skirts, tiki huts and sun lamps everywhere. This year, get ready for the “Disco Ball!” That’s right. Bust out those 70’s heels, bell bottoms and fly-collared shirts. Then, get ready to bust a move as the disco era returns to La Crosse for just one night!

History of Winter Ball
Joe and his dad, Tony started Pearl Street brewery in the basement of a bar in downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1999. A legend was born that Winter, and a storied and colorful history followed. Now, 23 years later, the brewery is celebrating another Winter Ball in its home on the Northside of La Crosse. Over the years, this annual anniversary celebration has taken many different forms at many different locations. All of them are full of great memories for those lucky enough to attend.
The very first Winter Ball in 1999, took place at the Bodega. It has also been held at Bluebird Campground, Westby Rod & Gun Club, El Coco Loco (closed), twice in an historical 1800’s barn. One time it was held out in Timber Coulee in the heart of the Coulee Region. This year, folks will come from far and wide to celebrate at the brewery in their Saint Andrew Street location.
