UPDATE: Wow, you folks love some beer, huh? We have sold out of advance tickets for this suds extravaganza. We will have a very limited number of tickets available at the gate, so if you want to get in, you'd best get there real early.
Ah, craft beer, you delicious, nectar-of-the-gods you. If you're reading this, odds are good that those two words will have you eyeing the clock and checking for the closest happy hour. The Times has put together this celebration of suds and it is going to be awesome.
There'll be beer from more than 30 national, regional and local brewers, including big names like Sierra Nevada and New Belgium, newer arrivals to the area such as Tallgrass and Schlafly and local stalwarts Vino's, Boscos, Diamond Bear and many more.
Of course, you'll need some tasty chow to soak up all that beer, and we've got you covered there, too. Cregeen's Irish Pub, Cornerstone Pub & Grill and Reno's Argenta Cafe will serve it up. Music also pairs well with beer and food, so we're bringing in The Funkanites, The Salty Dogs and Weakness for Blondes.
It'll be a good time, so come on out and celebrate beer with us. Oh, and naturally this is a 21-and-older event.
