Local Brewery Wins at Beer Fest
There were big breweries, small breweries. National breweries. Local breweries. In the end, it was the hometown brewery that won the hearts and tastebuds of those attending the between-the-bluffs beer, wine and cheese fest this week-end in La Crosse. Pearl Street Brewery was voted the number one brewery by the three thousand or so who attended the tasting festival at the Oktoberfest grounds on Saturday. The micro brewery, located in the old La Crosse Footwear factory, has been in existence for a little over ten years.
