Drink Local: July 15-21

We have a hot, sunny week ahead so make sure you guys are getting out and staying hydrated (with beer, of course!).

This week’s local highlights include making your own sushi at Sip n’ Sushi at FH Beerworks East, Metric Brewing’s one year anniversary party, and an educational Sensory Evaluation at Local Relic. There are also two brewfest you can attend this weekend - The 719 Day Brewfest on Friday, and the 13th Annual Springs Beer Fest on Saturday!

If you’re looking for something more low key this weekend, Brass is hosting dueling pianos on Friday, or you can learn about data analysis at STEAM-y Sundays with Mike Merryman at Lost Friend on Sunday. There is also a Crafts n’ Drafts at Oskar Blues or paint with legendary Phil Lear at Gold Camp Brewing!

Cheers!
