JANESVILLE, Wis. — Organizers of a Wisconsin winter beer festival known as FlannelFest have filed complaints in two states against an online ticket vendor for failing to turn over money from ticket sales.
The chamber of commerce group in Janesville said third-party vendor Brown Paper Tickets owes $20,000 for online tickets sales to the festival held earlier this year.
John Fugate, board president of Downtown Janesville Inc., said complaints have been filed with the Wisconsin attorney general and the attorney general in Washington state, where Brown Paper Tickets operates.

OREGON BREWERS GUILD LAUNCHES QUARTERLY COLLABORATION SERIES WITH STATE OF EXCITEMENT NO. 2
How do you collaborate on a beer during a global pandemic?
Twenty-seven Oregon’s breweries recently united to brew a statewide collab, State of Excitement No. 2, a hazy IPA brewed at Portland’s Baerlic Beer Co. The beer release marks the launch of the Guild’s quarterly collaboration series, which builds on the fun everyone had cranking out the Zwickelmania beer the past two Februaries.
“Collaborations are a little different right now, but I suppose just about everything is,” said Baerlic Beer Co. Brewer Stephen Helwig, who led the charge on brewday. “Fortunately, the modern miracle of the internet helped us to communicate, stay organized, and craft a damn delicious beer that shows off the best ingredients Oregon has to offer.”
