Last month, we told you Wauwatosa beer bastion Ray’s Wine & Spirits will once again be joining forces with 3 Floyds Brewing and WarPigs to help metro Milwaukee battle the winter blues with its annual “Wückfinter” outdoor celebration. The event—which returned last year after a “A Virtual Wückening”  in 2021—is set to once again take place in the Ray’s parking lot (and parts of 89th Street and 90th Street) from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, February 26.

This year’s installment will offer an impressive cast of food vendors (more on that below!), DJing courtesy of the guys from Rushmor Records, and beer. Lots and lots of beer! This Wückfinter will give those who are bold enough to brave the elements an opportunity to enjoy 36 specialty craft brews from 3 Floyds and WarPigs.

This year’s impressive drink list includes some rarities (including four Dark Lord variants and the Wisconsin launch of Zombie Ice Undead Double Pale Ale), a few barrel aged options (including the draft launch of Wückfinter Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout), Zombie Ice served from a Zombie Skull Ice Luge, a spirits bar featuring cocktails that highlight 3 Floyds-distilled products, and the debut of the Kaiju’s Redrüm Slushie. Here’s the full beer list:

As far as food is concerned, Ray’s will welcome back chef Karen Bell and her team from Bavette la Boucherie. Morel’s Jonathon Manyo, as well as Andrew and Rhiannon Wilson from Cedarburg’s Brandywine will bring their teams to cook as well. Other vendors on-site includes Tots On The Street, BB Cakes Bakery, Kelly’s Green’s, and The Alchemist’s Hot Sauce.

If you haven’t already done so, we strongly recommend you save the date and prepare to bundle up. It’s going to be Wücking good time in the Rayborhood on Sunday, February 26!
