In the 608: Karben4 Brewing celebrating 10 years this weekend

MADISON, Wis. – Karben4 Brewing, a craft beer mainstay on the east side, will celebrate its 10th anniversary at their taproom on Saturday, Jan. 21 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

This anniversary party will be a special community gathering that includes two commemorative beer releases.

“The past ten years have been such a wild ride for us” says Karben4 Co-owner Zak Koga. “Both Karben4 and the craft beer world have changed so much and we’re incredibly grateful to be a part of such a great community.”

Over the past decade Karben4 has grown from less than 200 barrels the first year to producing over 11,000 barrels annually.

Karben4 plans to commemorate its 10th anniversary by releasing two special beers on the 21st – the 2023 edition of Priest Prophet and King, a barrel-aged barleywine, and a Grand Cru version of their flagship Fantasy Factory IPA. Both will be available on draft in the taproom as well as in cans.

After two years of smaller capacity parties due to the pandemic, Karben4 anticipates this celebration will be their largest yet.

“The largest thanks is to our customers and supporters” says Co-owner and Brewmaster Ryan Koga. “Without your support, none of this would have been possible.”

Karben4 Brewing is located at 3698 Kinsman Blvd. in Madison.
