Lakefront Brewery brews special "Black Friday" ale
MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- If shopping is not your thing, here's a Black Friday deal that'll cap off your Thanksgiving holiday. Lakefront Brewery is finishing up its back of "Black Friday" ale.
Lakefront is only making 5,000 bottles of the Imperial India-style ale. The brewery's president says the brew is big-bodied and very malty.
Last year, Lakefront sold some 1,500 bottles of the "Black Friday" brew in about an hour-and-a-half.
"Last year the first person got here right after bar time. So, he closed the bar up--he was a bartender--and he got here at like 2:30 in the morning. And so after that people started showing up and when I came here at like 5 in the morning, the line was all the way down til the end of the street," said Russ Klisch, owner of Lakefront Brewery.
Lakefront Brewery will start selling the "Black Friday" ale at 8 a.m. on Friday, November 29th. Each bottle costs $10. There's a limit of three per person.
