Fat Tuesday in Madison: Abita, Sazeracs & Jazz

UPDATE: Bierock has been informed by its distributor that it won’t be able to fulfill our order for a keg of Abita Mardi Gras Bock. Don’t worry, we’ll still have Sazeracs, a New Orleans-style jazz playlist and another bock beer on tap.

Celebrate Fat Tuesday in Madison at Bierock by honoring a trio of New Orleans and Louisiana traditions.

On Tuesday February 16, we will tap a keg of Abita beer, put a Sazerac cocktail on special and feature a playlist of New Orleans jazz over the house sound system.

ABITA’S Mardi Gras Bock

On this date, Bierock will tap a keg of Abita Brewing Company’s Mardi Gras Bock with one-day-only special pricing.

Allow your jaw to drop with pints available at $4 each and only $3 during Happy Hour from 3 to 6 p.m.

Located in Abita Springs, Louisiana, just north of New Orleans, Abita Brewing is synonymous with the Mardi Gras celebration in the Crescent City.

“Mardi Gras Bock is the first of our seasonal brews,” according to the brewery. “Abita Mardi Gras Bock is brewed with pale, pilsner and caramel malts and German Perle hops. Our bock is similar to German maibocks with its rich malt flavor and full body. A perfect choice during Carnival season in New Orleans.”


Also on Tuesday, Bierock will have a New Orleans classic cocktail, the Sazerac, on special.

Bierock puts a Wisconsin twist on the drink by making it with Dancing Goat Limousin rye whiskey along with Absinthe and Angostura bitters and sugar. Savor this premium liquor at $10.

Finally, allow your evening to have a soundtrack featuring New Orleans jazz. Surround sound speakers will highlight legends like Kermit Ruffins, Dr. John, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and more.


Bierock’s full food and beer menu will be available.

Enjoy Fat Tuesday before temperance begins!

Bierock is located at 2911 N. Sherman Ave., part of the Northside TownCenter and across the street from Warner Park.
