MERRILL - You might want to grab your favorite flannel to suit up for this celebration.
Sawmill Brewing Company in Merrill will celebrate one year of beer Saturday.
The craft brewery has 16 Wisconsin craft beers on tap: six are their own.
At first, the Sawmill owners didn't know what the community would think.
"They've taken it by storm. There are so many people that are referring to this as our brewery, which is really what we wanted. We wanted to build something in Merrill that they could come to and enjoy," said owner Zach Kubichek.
To celebrate its one year anniversary, there will be a special batch of "River Hog" oatmeal stout.
Sawmill put the beer in a Northern Waters Distillery bourbon barrel for the last few months.
"We just set it aside for a few months. And it's kind of like, 'I hope it works out.' Then all of a sudden we were kegging it, and we had to hook up a contraption like a science experiment and had to hook up a little contraption," said Kubichek, "It turned out fantastic I tried it yesterday and it will be ready to go for Saturday."
You have one shot at tasting the special brew; there is only a half barrel for the special anniversary.
Beer doesn't take any breaks; Sawmill Brewing Company stays open seven days a week.
The one-year anniversary celebration starts at 2 p.m. Saturday.
The day will be full of live music, raffles, and of course, beer.
