Please Welcome the Portly Fellow and the Freaky 220!

Don’t these look refreshing?

Big weekend at PetSkull Brewing! Tonight at 4:00 we tap the Manitowoc Jaycees Beer Lover’s Brewfest Best of the Fest Portly Fellow Cherry Vanilla Porter! We use our standard porter, add a ton (roughly) of cherry and finish it off with numerous vanilla beans. Thank you to our great customers and the craft beer drinkers from Manitowoc who voted for this beer!

Additionally, we are also tapping the brand new Freaky 220 Double IPA! The Freaky is an insanely over-the-top hop bomb using Mosaic and Citra hops. Although high in IBUs, it is extremely smooth. This was an experimental batch, so unfortunately no growler fills on this one as supply is limited. We’re definitely making more of this one ASAP!

On Saturday, we are celebrating our six-month anniversary! We will have snacks and prize giveways throughout the day. Come out and help us celebrate a very successful six months!


Best of the Fest!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Manitowoc! It was an honor to win Best of the Fest at last night’s Manitowoc Jaycees Beer Lover’s Brewfest. For those of you that were there, you know what an amazing event Lindsey and her staff put on for our community. We are extremely blown away by all of the support we have for our small brewery and tap room. Winning this award is a testament to our magnificent customers! See you this Thursday for the taproom debut of the Portly Fellow Cherry Vanilla Porter as well as out new FREAKY 220 Double IPA.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend….CHEERS!

PetSkull at Jaycee’s Brewfest!

Greetings! Unfortunately, no new beers in the taproom this week – but if you didn’t have a chance to stop out last weekend to try our new DeBockL Weizenbock, now would be the time…it’s going fast!

We will, however, have two new beers that we’ll be pouring at the Manitowoc Jaycees Beer Lover’s Brewfest on February 17th at the Manitowoc Expo. We’ll be debuting our Portly Fellow Cherry Vanilla Porter as well as our Freaky 220 (a variant of our house 220). Those beers will then be available in the taproom starting February 22nd. With that being said, we are closing the taproom on the 17th as our staff will be at the event. Stop out! For a list of ticket sellers for the event, visit the Jaycees FB page for more info.

Hope to see everyone this weekend! CHEERS!

Please Welcome, DeBockL!

Good riddance, January! You suck!

New beer today in the taproom! We are pleased to introduce DeBockL, a 6.75% German Weizenbock…a stronger, malty, fruity, wheat-based ale combining the best flavors of a hefeweizen and the rich strength and body of a bock. Guaranteed to warm you up on this chilly day!

Also, we finally welcome the return of our 220 Double IPA! It may be big at 8.5%, but is very smooth. Get it while it’s fresh!
