EAA to Introduce 70th Anniversary Beer at AirVenture 2023

AirVenture attendees and residents of the Fox Valley can get a taste of EAA’s 70th anniversary as the organization partners with Stone Arch Brew Pub of Appleton, Wisconsin, to produce a special commemorative beer.

The Kölsch beer will be available in select Fox Valley grocery stores beginning July 1, and sold at camp stores on the grounds during AirVenture 2023, July 24-30. The beer cans will feature one of seven unique labels, one released each day of AirVenture and each representing a part of EAA’s history. Only one design will be available in grocery stores, but all seven can be purchased on the AirVenture grounds.

“In 2019, EAA offered a specialty beer to commemorate 50 years in Oshkosh, and it was an instant hit with our members and attendees,” said Chris Farrell, EAA’s director of events, and food & beverage. “They asked if we could repeat this for EAA’s 70th anniversary. It gives us the opportunity to highlight EAA’s legacy.”

The specific beer was chosen in part by attendees of the Flight at the Museum event in March, and an EAA staff tasting.

Kölsch beer classifies as a “Pale Bitter European Beer,” and originates from Germany. This specific Kölsch beer is described as having a “very clean, slightly grainy malt, low bitterness, light hop flavor.”

The Warbirds design is the first of the seven-can collection — to learn more about this design and the commemorative beer, visit EAA.org/Cans.
