Just a few years ago, Summerfest unveiled the updated Miller Lite Oasis stage and, along with it, one of the niftiest features: the Brew House, a covered bar area serving refreshing beers as well as seating and TVs for those who want to relax and watch the show away from the hubbub.

Along with its convienient, large and relaxing covered bar area, the Brew House – located on the north side of the Miller Lite Oasis Stage – sports one of the most unique ways to earn some great prizes.

Those 21 and older, for instance, can take a swing at the venue's most exhilarating feature: a daily hole-in-one contest brought to you by East Side mini-golf bar Nine Below. For the low, low price of nothing, concert-goers can take two shots at sinking a tricky mini-golf putt – all while Star Wars characters and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle intimidate and judge you from the green.

Aside from the fun of testing your luck on a tricky putt, here's the best part: If you manage to hit one of your putts, you not only win pride, you'll also score two front row tickets for the Miller Lite Oasis headliner that night (which includes acts like DJ Diesel, Flo Rida, Bleachers and many more).

However, mini-golf is not the only skill that you will need to sharpen up on in order to snag some front row tickets as shuffleboard is making its appearance as an additional challenge at the Brew House courtesy of NorthSouth Club.

So stop by, swing (or slide) away and give the employee with the microphone a reason to excitedly announce you as a proud winner of front row tickets at the Miller Lite Oasis.

The Nine Below mini-golf will be open during Summerfest daily from noon until 8 p.m., while the Brew House serves throughout the night. Oh, and the Big Gig is currently running now through Sept. 4, Sept. 9-11 and Sept. 16-18, so see you all down there.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
