Lodi Brew-B-Que« Back to Events
The 9th annual Lodi & Lake Wisconsin Brew-B-Que covers downtown with a huge block party. This fall festival kicks off with the area’s best barbecue teams smoking their special ribs in an exciting competition open to anyone up for the challenge. There’s also a chili cook-off, a homemade salsa competition (we assume the dipping salsa, not the dancing, but we could be wrong), a bags tournament, and a home brew competition plus raffles, music, a kids’ zone, and more.
Highways 60 and 113 meet in Lodi and that’s right where Brew-B-Que will be happening. It runs the last Saturday of every September, which means in 2016 it happens September 24th. You can access Lodi from I-39/90/93 via Highway 60 (Exit 119) or from U.S. 12 via Highway 60 from Prairie du Sac.
Come down for the day, sample some chili and salsa, grab a brew and taste some great barbecue while trying your luck with their 50/50 raffles or enter their Corn hole (a.k.a. Bags) Tournament all while enjoying the music from the Saving Savannah Band and The Retro Specz Band.
VIP passes are $40. This includes tasting and judging the rib competition, salsa, chili and Home brew. You get a souvenir bag with goodies and a free drink. Tickets are limited. Grounds are FREE.
