Central Waters Tap List for Great Taste Pre-Party
Posted Tuesday, July 30th, 2013 by Tip Top

The Beer Spot is very excited to announce the tap list for Central Waters.  Each year this list seems to get better and better.  As with past years, be careful when trying to taste through this list as there are a bunch of big brews.

Central WatersON DRAFT:
  • Hop Rise 
  • Mudpuppy Porter
  • Glacial Trail IPA
  • Ouisconsin Red
  • Shine On
  • Satin Solstice Stout
  • Belgian Blonde
  • Octoberfest
  • Honey Blonde
  • Brewhouse Coffee Stout
  • Le Petite Mort
  • Bourbon Barrel Stout
  • Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout
  • Bourbon Barrel Barleywine
  • Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale
  • Y2K Barleywine
  • 7PM: Fifteen
  • 8PM: (Yet to be named) Chili Pepper Stout
  • 9PM: Exodus

Although it only lists the special release beers as cash only, we highly recommend that any beers purchased are done so using cash.  This will expedite the process of getting a beer for everyone, especially on the third floor.

Posted Friday, July 27th, 2012 by Tip Top

Updating our post about the 2012 Great Taste Pre-Party, I'm excited to announce the tap list for Central Waters.  I've always been told that there was no way that Central Waters was going to let another brewery show it up on it's home turf.  Well, they sure deliver.  This year's tap list is even better than last year's impressive list.  

Central WatersOn Tap Right From the Start


  • Happy Heron Pale Ale
  • Mudpuppy Porter
  • Oisconsin Red Ale
  • Glacial Trail IPA
  • Satin Solstice Imperial Stout
  • Shine On
  • Belgian Blonde
  • Honey Blonde
  • Oktoberfest
  • Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout
  • Y2K Barleywine 2011
  • Peruvian Morning 2011
  • La Petite Mort
  • Bourbon Barrel Barleywine 2011
  • Bourbon Barrel Stout


I'm also told that there will be a firkin on all night, but I'm not sure what it will be yet.  You'd think this is enough, but there are timed releases too...

Time Releases


  • 7pm - Barrel Aged Slainte Scotch Ale
  • 8pm - Barrel Aged La Petite Mort
  • 9pm - Exodus
  • 10pm - 1414 


All in all, 20 different beers from Central Waters.  This alone is more than enough to spend the night on, but remember, there is beer coming from a couple other breweries too!
