We feature live music performed by local and regional musicians representing a range of musical styles. If you're looking for great music and a friendly, upbeat vibe, look no further than Wicked Wednesdays. Local celebs like E.M.D., Fresh Vintage, My Cat Jack, Sweet T and Johnny B, and Sam Nitsch drop in to play while the crowd sings along and hits the dance floor in our tasting room or spacious beer garden. Stop by on Sunday afternoon or other nights and you're likely to catch a local artist playing some tunes or customers singing karaoke Check the calendar below for information on upcoming events!
In the fall and winter months, the games move indoors! Euchre tournaments, Pass the Pig, board games and more! A pint, some games and fun with friends is always on tap at Crafty! Bring your own game in and see what magic awaits...
Our spacious beer garden is open much of the year and is a great venue for catching up with friends, listening to a full live music band, and --of course-- playing yard games. During the spring and summer, Crafty Ales & Lagers hosts a weekly Cornhole League; in 2019, we had over 20 teams compete in two divisions. An end-of-summer tournament filled with fun, food, beer, and prizes rounds out the league season. When the garden is not in use for league play or music, customers are invited to play outdoor games like cornhole and yard-sized Jenga.
Each June, we throw an anniversary bash filled with music, fun, food, prizes, and (of course) beer! Whether you're a Crafty fan or new to the brewery, you'll enjoy our summer beer releases while kicking back listening to your favorite local bands in a friendly atmosphere. The Crafty Ales & Lagers Annual Anniversary Party is always a great time!
