Though not everyone agrees, West Allis has really grown on us. The oft-maligned Milwaukee suburb is an excellent host city for the Wisconsin State Fair. West Allis’ mayor—who referenced a Milwaukee Record article at the Fair’s opening ceremony yesterday—is good at horseshoes and down-to-earth. The city is also home to some awesome restaurants, one hell of a farmer’s market, an up-and-coming brewery, an art gallery and playhouse, and a wide array of welcoming bars with no pretentiousness to speak of and (more often than not) extremely affordable beer.

Since opening out on 68th Street in ‘Stallis back in 2014, The Drunk Uncle has put itself on the map by offering an impressive selection of craft beer, along with some unique and alluring drink specials that make the young West Allis wrestling bar a must-visit destination when you’re in the area. The Drunk Uncle is known to reduce prices drastically during Packer games and sell pints of IPAs for just $1 all day/night long on select Saturdays. However, the bar will offer one of the most interesting specials in its brief history this weekend.

When the establishment opens at 4 p.m. today, pints of what the bar considers to be “one of the greatest beers ever made” will be available for just 50 cents all night. The special will also run from 2 p.m. until close on Saturday. The Facebook post announcing this weekend’s special (which was accompanied by a picture of Ric Flair for some reason) has led to lots of speculation from customers, but the bar isn’t giving away the identity of the secret beer until they open today. Maybe it’s something incredible or maybe it’s not (“Nature Boy” Ric Flair…uh, Natural Ice?!), but we know one thing for sure: it’s a 50-cent beer.

If you’re headed to the State Fair this weekend or you’re just looking for a low-risk and drinking-based mystery to help spice up your weekend, stop by The Drunk Uncle for “one of the greatest beers ever made.” Woo!
