The Milwaukee Firkin Craft Beer Festival features music and samplings of rare beers from around Wisconsin and the rest of the country, including its signature draw: the firkins. Firkins are cask-conditioned barrels of small-batch beers that are naturally carbonated while they're in the cask, producing a very different flavor from most modern beers. There will also be talks from beer historians and home-brew experts, as well as displays of beer memorabilia. Tickets are $45 at the gate, $40 in advance, and include unlimited sampling. A $70 VIP package includes early admission and appetizers from The Rumpus Room.


A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
