The Society of Oshkosh Brewers presents:

Try as we might, we have not been able to change the law that dictates a "no admission charge" policy for any venue that offers homebrew tasting, nor have we found a venue willing to donate their fees so that we could hold a 2016 event without charging an admission fee. We know there are beer tasting festivals in Wisconsin that offer homebrew while still charging admission fees, which, according to the state statues, is still against the law. We have our own thoughts as to why this is overlooked, but also feel it is grossly unfair that we cannot hold our event strictly for charitable purposes. We also feel our event is very important to the charities of Oshkosh and therefore, have not given up. We will continue to work toward a solution and would like to thank everyone for your past, and continued support!
