Beer and Food go hand in hand. That’s why we’ve asked five of our local restaurants to pair with each of our five special beer releases for this year’s Winter Ball
Big Al’s Too – When you say Big Al’s pizza, you think of a made from scratch thin crust dough, a delicious secret recipe pizza sauce, locally made fresh pizza sausage, locally purchased fresh vegetables, and fresh shredded part skim mozzarella cheese. When it comes to toppings, Big Al’s Too really piles them on.
Stolpa’s Stein Haus – The Stein Haus is LaCrosse’s only German Pub and Grill! Stop on in and enjoy the Great German Bier selection. The atmosphere is comfortable and will bring you the feeling of a German Bier Hall! You will be stunned by the quality of our biers (tap lines cleaned every 2 weeks) and our food! When the weather is nice come on out and play in the Bier Garten (LaCrosse’s finest). From everyone here at the Stein Haus…. EIN PROSIT!
Howie’s – A landmark for decades, Howie’s has been a gathering place for friends and families alike in Historic La Crosse, Wisconsin. In its newest form, Howie’s will once again provide the La Crosse area with a casual and fun atmosphere.
A newly designed kitchen will feature gourmet burgers, signature sandwiches, wood crusted pizza, and chef inspired entrees that are sure to please your taste buds. Along with the new menu, Howie’s will offer a wide selection of tap beers, martinis, and signature drinks.
Our owners have more than 20 years of combined experience in the bar and restaurant industry. They have used this expertise to create a unique atmosphere with consistently great food and outstanding service. Our menu features a wide variety of traditional Irish fare, appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, soups, salads and desserts.
There is always something going on at Dublin Square Irish Pub with events, such as contests, live Irish music, and specials. You can find our menu, drink menu, and a listing of upcoming events and daily specials on our website. If you are looking for one of the best restaurants or bars in La Crosse, WI, come to Dublin Square Irish Pub for a great time with friends, delicious food, or to watch the game on our 80″ television. Slainte!
Pogreba Restaurant – Greetings, and welcome to Pogreba Restaurant. A La Crosse dining experience since 2011 where proud, family tradition and innovative food selection come together in a warm, cozy atmosphere just 1 block from the north side downtown.
Honest Monday – Spawned out of decades of numerous musical endeavors, HONEST MONDAY is a unique collaboration of singer-songwriters. Each member of the band truly brings his own musical flavor to the table while maintaining a simplistic approach to compliment the collective sound. HONEST MONDAY is loose with a sense of solidarity, fresh sound with an old soul. With a diverse diverse range of influences, the band seamlessly blends together to create a musically classic, yet raw original sound.
HONEST MONDAY performed at the JAZZ ESTATE in Milwaukee, WI every Monday night from 2008 to 2012, gaining a solid following of honestly good people who just want to enjoy some good, honest music.
Sexy Ester -Fronted by honey voiced Lyndsay Evans, who controls the stage like the Divas of old ( I’m talking Aretha not X-Tina ) and ably backed by Adam Edar on guitar, Jenna Joanis on drums, Brad Schubert on bass, and Roscoe Evans on keyboards, Sexy Ester is no flash in the pan.
They’ve already payed a lot of dues slugging it out in the smaller clubs and dives all over the Midwest. The new CD, “Monomania”, is fast becoming a staple of college radio and the venues are getting bigger and bigger – Sexy Ester is certainly going to have folks talking for a while – or at least until mullets come back into style!
