Welcome to the Speckled Hen Inn

Can you use 'blonde' & 'chub' in the same sentence and still be PC?

You can if you have attended Capital Brewery’s Bockfest.  Guests at our Madison WI Bed and Breakfast will be chatting Sunday morning about the wonderful time they had at this annual event.

First let me explain about the ‘Blonde” and the ‘Chub’.  Bockfest celebrates the release of Capital Brewery’s Blonde Dopplebock beer.  The ‘chub’ part comes into play mid-afternoon when Kirby gets up on the roof of the brewery and flings smoked chubs into the crowd.  Smoked chubs are delicious smoked 6″ or so fish that are dearly loved by all those who have been fortunate enought to taste one.  Why does Kirby throw fish from the roof?  You will have to go to a Bockfest and ask.  I think that he does it because it is just plain outrageous fun and that is what Bockfest is all about.

Other events during the day include the 1K Running of the Blondes, live music, a costume contest, and of course, brewery tours and much drinking of the Dopplebock.

The 13th Annual Bockfest is this Saturday, February 27th from 11AM until 5PM at Capital Brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin.  Bockfest is always held the last Saturday in February so if you have to miss it this time, you can mark your calendar for next year.

Cheers!
