Over the past 3 years our Casks and Caskets event has raised close to $20,000 for the local food pantries of Oshkosh. Early this year, we were informed that the recent rewrite of Wisconsin Statues regarding the sampling of homebrew does not allow for the selling of admission tickets.
This has severely limited our ability to continue raising funds for local charities and, although we would be happy to host the event with free admission, we have met with opposition from local venues about this statute and the date we had selected (Halloween).
So, we are taking a break to re-group and plan a strategy for 2016. Our members have enjoyed brewing and volunteering for this event and hope to come back full steam for 2016.
Thank you for your donations, sponsorship and participation! See you all next year!
