It’s no secret that Milwaukee loves its Bloody Marys.
Between the ever-present “beer chaser” that accompanies the savory breakfast cocktail and the epic garnishes that take the drink to elaborate levels of gluttony, it’s safe to say that this city doesn’t mess around when it comes to bloodies. But if there’s any doubt that Milwaukee is the Bloody Mary capital of the state (and, by extension, the world), one local restaurant will try to put the debate to rest this month.
On Saturday, January 19, Crafty Cow will team up with Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation to try to be “Milwaukee’s Largest Bloody Mary Bar.” That day, the local burger joint will cut out all the stops by offering a staggering 60 (SIXTY!!!) topping options on a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. The $20 “Boundless Bloody Bar” includes a trip through the bar and a 3 Sheeps/Crafty Cow glass (while supplies last), which customers can load up with as many toppings as they can fit. A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation.
Crafty Cow co-owner Devin Eichler says the garnishes will range from traditional fare like meats, cheeses, and bacon to “some fun toppings from the kitchen” like buffalo wings, fried chicken, shrimp, and more. Eichler also tells Milwaukee Record this event will be a “practice run” for a later attempt by Crafty Cow to get in the Guinness Book Of World Records as the World’s Largest Bloody Mary Bar.
So if you want to be part of history…or if you just really like Bloody Marys, head over to Crafty Cow on January 19.
