Drink Local: May 20-26

It’s a cold, wet start of the week but that just means more beer to warm your soul! Need a place to cozy up? This week you will find an Open Arts event at Gold Camp, a 7 Kingdoms at Tap Traders party for those who completed the Game of Breweries tour, and you have the chance to meet (real live) wolves at FH Beerworks Downtown.
