Happy September all,
This Friday marks the return of WESTPORTIERFEST Oktoberfest! This is our take on the classic Märzenbier lager style that originated in Bavaria and is THE seasonal style of mid-September through early October coinciding with the huge Oktoberfest celebration in Munich! Rich, malty, smooth, and quite drinkable at 5.5%, Westportierfest awaits your discerning taste buds starting at 3 Friday!
Then at 7:30 Aaron Scholz & Chris Boeger take the stage. Aaron Scholz is a singer-songwriter who moved to Madison 20 years ago to play in a loud rock band. That band never made it but Aaron stuck around and found his own style of acoustic music. Madison native Chris Boeger has handled the low end for many local folks including Ladybeard, The Hometown Sweehearts, The Beat Chefs, Josh Harty, Cash Box Kings, Catfish Stephensen and many more!
Chris even used to play with Aaron, some time back in the late 20th century and when paths crossed again last year, they dusted off the partnership to begin anew. Aaron plays acoustic with Chris doing some lap steel and upright bass (no, not at the same time). They’ll do some of Aaron’s originals as well as a selection of only really good songs that other people wrote.
Hope to see you this Friday.
