About 250 miles from the Twin Cities is a magical place where new beers are born and big ol' parties go down. This place is called the Shitty Barn--the headquarters of Furthermore Brewery, best known for delicious brews like Thermo Refur and Fatty Boombalatty. Just outside of Madison in Spring Green, Wisconsin, Furthermore founders Aran Madden and Chris Staples host this year's first Shitty Barn Session on Wednesday--a family friendly event with live music by Josh Harty.
Last September the Furthermore boys threw down a Shitty Barn Party (this is the first official "Session") co-hosted by Madison's Underground Food Collective and Gastro Non Grata, which was a rocking success. We asked Staples about the latest event:
"We have a shitty barn that screams 'Have a good time in me!' We have a collective love of music, particularly intimate and/or transcendent performances. We have something of a mutual admiration society for one another's particular talents and ideas. And nobody said we couldn't, shouldn't or wouldn't, so away we go!"
