Welcome to Milwaukee!
Welcome to our beautiful city with seemingly bottomless pint glasses, cheese, and fried food, but more importantly, welcome to the 9th Annual Midwest BrewHaHa. We’re so excited to have you here and share this weekend with you!
The Brewcity Bruisers are honored to host this Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)-recognized tournament at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena, which is where we have just wrapped up our 12th home season.
This year we are pleased to announce that the tournament offers three jam-packed days of all kinds of derby, including bouts featuring WFTDA Charter teams, WFTDA Regulation teams, Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) teams, and Junior Roller Derby Association (JRDA) teams!
While you are visiting Milwaukee, we hope you fulfill your derby fix and that you’re able to find time to enjoy all that our city has to offer. Thankfully, the UW-Milwaukee Panther arena is smack dab in the heart of downtown which lends tons of convenience and the ability to walk, bike, bus or drive to many local attractions – the art museum, local breweries (with tours!), coffee shops, and wonderful eateries, just to name a few. We also hope you’re able to take time to visit our sponsors! Any of our Brewcity Bruisers, volunteers, or hometown fans are happy to offer up recommendations.
We’d like to issue a few rounds of thanks-
To our thousands of home-grown fans: We hope you enjoy this opportunity to see and cheer for your favorite players from the Brewcity Bruisers as they take the track as a unified team in black and gold – no home team alliances here. We also hope that you come away from this weekend with some new favorite skaters and teams! Roller derby wouldn’t be as fun without you and we appreciate all of your support and encouragement!
To our visiting derby family and fans: Without your interest and excitement for the Midwest BrewHaHa, we wouldn’t be able to host this event! We love to meet and skate with and against new people and look forward to having you all every year. We hope you enjoy your time visiting Milwaukee and cheering and skating with us!
To our many dedicated volunteers, wonderful sponsors, and expert crews and staff: All of you are what make this weekend possible. We are forever grateful and appreciative of your support and dedication to our league, roller derby, and this tournament!
Now let’s all raise a glass (of your beverage of choice) and cheer to the best Midwest BrewHaHa to date!
Much Love, The Brewcity Bruisers
