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 in 2022 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 25.

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 30 specialty craft brews from 3 Floyds and WarPigs.

This year’s impressive drink list includes some rarities (including EIGHT Dark Lord variants), a few barrel aged options (including 2023’s Wückfinter Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout), new beers like Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker and Burned Fortress, a “3 Floyds Cocktail Oasis” and a new Wückfinter Boozy 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. Other vendors on-site includes Tots On The Street, Baked Cheese Haus, Kristine and Tory Miller of Madison’s Graze L’Etoile Restaurant, and Kelly’s Greens. There will also be a “3 Floyds Wheel of Wück” on-site to offer attendees a chance to win some prizes.

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—”snow or shine”—on Sunday, February 25!
