New brew crew at PowerPlantLive!

A Chippwea Falls, Wis,. brewery will offer 30 draft beers as part of a new beer garden set to open this week at Power Plant Live! in the Inner Harbor.

Leinenkugel’s Beer Garden will be located in 2,500-square feet of restaurant space and 200 square feet of outdoor space at the ground level of the development owned by the Cordish Companies. Cordish has just completed a $10 million renovation of the historic former plant.

Next month, Leinenkugel’s will host a month-long Oktoberfest. The family-owned, fifth generation brewery is nearly 144 years old. The brews are among the favorites in the Midwest.

In addition to the draft beers, the garden will offer 30 different bottled beers. The garden has a “self serve” draft beer option, allowing customers to pick their favorite draft beers and even mix them.

As part of the renovations at Power Plant, the beer garden will have the outdoor garden with a fireplace, rose bushes, up-lit trees and communal seating. The main restaurant will have a retractable roof and sliding garage doors on three sides.

“We’re thrilled that Leinenkugel’s Beer Garden will open in Power Plant Live!” stated Jake Leinenkugel, president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. “It’s an honor that the premier beer garden in Baltimore will showcase our acclaimed collection of handcrafted beers to a new audience. Baltimore is truly a great beer town and we’re excited to be a part of it.”

Leinenkugel’s is hosting a month of Saturday-only Oktoberfest events beginning Sept. 17 that include live music, contests and food and drink specials. Some of the envents include a Miss Oktoberfest Contest, oompah band and dancers, fish fry, a homebrew competition and a chance to win a trip to the Leinenkugel’s Brewery in Chippewa Falls.
