There's nothing like a Wisconsin old fashioned. But how about a Wisconsin old fashioned mocktail?

Whether you're in the throes of Dry January,  sober-curious or living the sober lifestyle full-time, Sprecher Brewing Co. is here for it.

Using their line of craft sodas and seltzers, plus a few other simple ingredients, they've mixed up an engaging collection of seven craft mocktails that you can easily whip up at home.  Even better, they're hosting a special sampling event where you can sample the entire line-up, from a berry mule and Sprecher sangria to a citrus mojito and iced coffee mocktail.

Sprecher's Dry January Mocktail Tasting takes place on Thursday, Jan. 20 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Taproom located at 1701 Glendale Ave. Tickets are $15 per person and can be purchased online at sprecherbrewery.comAnd, of course, after the tasting, you'll have the opportunity to pick up the Sprecher products to make your favorites at home.
