Gear And Beer Fest Wisconsin will descend on Madison's eastside on September 24th at the historic East Side Club.

The first locally-led Gear and Beer Festival in Madison WI is a gathering that provides an opportunity for members of the community to buy, sell, and trade musical instruments, recording equipment, and vinyl records as well as connect with their fellow musicians and music lovers. Over 50 vendors tables including local studios and label, nearly-constant raffle drawings, and a full cash bar create an extravaganza unlike any other in the Midwest.

EARLY BIRD TICKETS go on sale THURSDAY 8/3 at Star Liquor and MadCity Music Exchange.
$7.00 ticket = access to all vendors one hour before the general public.

VENDOR TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE:

Is anyone allowed to bring gear for sale? I'm not looking to rent a vendor table but I have a guitar amp I'd like to offer for sale.

And at this one, you have the opportunity to get a few beers into 'em first. That can't hurt. :-)

Have you been there? What did you think of it? The Untappd reviews looked pretty middling.

No not yet. I will have to have my brother take me there for a couple of brews. I don't leave the house much alone as the COPD has gotten quite bad, and I often need to take a tank of oxygen.

They also look good from the article in the local paper.

Thanks for the link. Janesville could use a good microbrewery.

I don't what qualifies as "microbrewery," but Gray's Brewing is also in Janesville. I don't care for most of their beers except for their Honey Ale which is my favorite beer.

Gray's also has tours and a tasting room.

That's why I said "good". I had a diacetyl-infected stout of theirs a few years ago that put me off them. I do recall liking the Honey Ale however.
