On Saturday, February 13th, Pearl Street Brewery will be celebrating their 22nd Annual Winter Ball at Pearl Street Brewery outside, in front of the brewery. The outdoor event will include live music, bonfire, food sales, and the release of five new and exciting Pearl Street creations as well as offerings from Turisimo (Tur-E-see-mo) Winery. Admittance to the Winter Snow Ball is $10 per person and ticket sales are capped for social distancing.
The lineup of special release beers:
- Hazy Juicy Pale Ale
- Cask conditioned Spruce-a-Lool
- Burly Girl Robust Stout
- Barrel Aged 2017 Flanders Red
- Blender Bender Fruited Smoothie IPA
Other PSB beers and three wines from Turisimo Winery will be available. $10 Tickets are available in advance at the Pearl Street Brewery Store and at the brewery.
For the first time ever, Pearl Street will offer house-made wines at their Winter Ball. Over 2020, PSB diversified itself into a winery. Wines made at the brewery are made under the name Turisimo Winery and Fermentations. Turisimo also makes hard setzers and ciders.
Since 1999, Pearl Street Brewery, which was then located in the basement of the Bodega in downtown La Crosse, has had it’s annual anniversary celebration in many different forms and at many different locations. 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 at the Jorgenson Farm and many times at the brewery.
According to Brewmaster Joe Katchever, the decision to have this year’s Winter Ball outside was primarily so people could celebrate while still following safe social distancing rules. “We had some very successful and responsible outdoor events this past year.” He says, “we are Wisconsinites and Minnesotans and having fun outdoors in the Winter is in our blood.”
Precautions being taken include contactless check-in, limiting capacity, sanitizing stations, and single use drinkware. The full list of rules and regulations will be available at the Pearl Street Brewery website and app.
