Made the pilgrimage to Central Waters for the 16th Anniversary Party with a group of friends and stayed at a hotel in the Steven's Point area. CW was gracious enough to have shuttle services going to the event every 20 mins so we didn't have to drive (bonus). When we arrived at the event around 2:30 there were already a ton of cars lined up outside and people waiting inline for there allocation of 16, we stopped in the tap room for a few beers (Exodus and a Peruvian Morning for me) before waiting in line.

The line started outside and while I was ill prepared, talking with fellow beer nerds and drinking an amazing beer I was fine with it. Once we got in the tent there were heaters going and it made me forget about the cold all together. Eventually (1.5 hours?) later we got our bottles of 16 and headed back into the brewery to get a few more (a pour of 16, and more Exodus) and watched some great bluegrass.

I was able to get drinks quickly, the people pouring knew what they were talking about and had recommendations. My only gripe was they ran out of bottles of Exodus.. bah what are you going to do.

Selection was basically everything they have. Fresh hop rise, Space Ghost, and more 16 as the night went on. There was a food table in the tent with the line for 16, we did grab some bomb fries, but I should have tried the barley wine bbq pork, doh!

Overall, I had an amazing time. People were complaining about the cold, the wait for 16 and a few other things, but if you've ever been to a beer event you know to relax and have a beer. it will work out. Do that and you'll have a blast. Good People, Amazing beer and a rad brewery. what more could you ask for.

This review is based on my experience at 17 Anniversary Party.
I know this completely different than going on a normal day.

The event was well organized. I got in and got my allotment of 17 anniversary beer in a matter of minutes.

The food was exceptional. I do wish the 16 would have lasted longer on tap.

This review is based on the 17 Anniversary Party on 1/24/15.
We were fortunate enough to have VIP tickets and we arrived at noon to find a fairly short line. We were ushered in, went through a quick ID check and I had a beer in my had a beer in my hand in moments. The selection and quality of the beers available was stellar and the service was top-notch.
The event was extremely well run and it was a breeze to purchase the anniversary beer. Nothing but impressed by the staff, the brewers and all involved. Amazing.

This is based of their 17th Anniversary Party... I know it's not like that every Saturday night but if your ever get a chance to visit do it, and if you can make the Anniversary party it's worth it. Pretty awesome to be able to drink Sixteen & Seventeen side by side on tap! Also, their other barrel offerings our top notch as well! They have several!

Was here for the 17th Anniversary party, which was an absolute blast. Definitely planning on returning to check out the place minus the thousands of other people.
