Behold: Beer

It’s time to celebrate!


You've given beer some props over the years. That pyramid of cans to the brew gods? Beautiful. Your Christmas tree decorated with empties? Almost holy. But none of that compares with serving the frothy goodness from a golden keg. That's the stuff of legends right there — and the wunderbar people of Germantown, Illinois, make this dream come true! You can witness the tapping of the magical golden keg at noon today during the opening ceremony for the Germantown Quartoseptcentennial. This street-fair celebration, marking 175 years as an established village, continues after the ceremony with a car show, a barbecue contest, music and more!
