On Saturday, February 17th, Pearl Street Brewery celebrates its 25th Annual Winter Ball – Party Like It’s 1999 with a special release.

During the event, Pearl Street Brewery will be releasing a Belgian Quad aged in Bourbon Barrels for the last five years (12oz single bottles). The Brewmaster says, ‘When we hit the 20-year milestone, we decided we better make something special for our 25th anniversary, so I brewed a Trappist-style Belgian Quad and put it into bourbon barrels where it has been resting for the last five years. We have now kegged some of the batch and bottled some of it. After the long rest in bourbon barrels, the beer is in excess of 12% ABV. We called it ‘Lamb of Quad,’ and the girls upstairs made a cool label for the bottles.’ The beer will be released at the Winter Ball Saturday, February 17, 2024.

Additionally, The event will feature live music, delectable food, and a fantastic array of craft beverages from Pearl Street Brewery and Turisimo Winery & Fermentation. Guests will groove to live performances by The Smokin’ Bandits and Gruv Collection, accompanied by an eclectic selection of special release drinks, beers, and beverages.

History of Winter Ball 
In 1999, Joe and his father, Tony, established Pearl Street Brewery in a downtown La Crosse bar’s basement. This marked the birth of a legend, and since then, it’s been a vibrant, storied history. Now, after 25 years, the brewery is set to celebrate another Winter Ball at its Northside La Crosse home. Throughout its history, this anniversary celebration has transformed across various locations, each leaving cherished memories for attendees.

The inaugural Winter Ball in 1999 was hosted at the Bodega. Subsequent events took place at Bluebird Campground, Westby Rod & Gun Club, El Coco Loco (now closed), and twice in a historic 1800s barn. Once, it was even held in Timber Coulee, nestled in the heart of the Coulee Region. This year, people from near and far will gather to celebrate at the brewery’s Saint Andrew Street location.
