Welcome to 5BAR… When we (Levi & Derrick) met we were sitting at a bar (big shocker) in Fort Collins, CO. Derrick walked into the bar solo and made eye contact with Levi. We had met before, so this was really the first time we chat. Some years later we discovered we had been to a few of the same events - and yes - we both have some fun stories from those events…

Years later we crash in the same hotel during a big coffee event (SCAA Seattle 2018). That’s really when we became friends. How do you capture all the stories and laughs? I don’t think its possible. We recorded a podcast together (Audio Cafe, episode 69 “Derrick Wessels is a Renaissance (Coffee) Man”), then we went out drinking way too late, way too late.

That’s the start of the story, come visit to hear all the rest.

The July 2021 menu is all things summer-food and fun. The drinks range from BBQ’n to frozen Otter Pops. Of course we couldn’t fit all of summer’s treats into one menu, at least not yet. LComment if you have a summer culinary “must have” that we missed. Maybe we can add it in for next year #Summer #Beloit #Wisconsin #WisconSun #Janesville #Rockford #BBQ #Grilling #Picnic #Cocktails #RetroMenu #WatermelonMargarita #Haymaker #OtterPops #SmoresCocktail #DrinkForFun
