Bluegrass Brunch at Station 26 Brewing Co.
June 11; 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lone Tree Summer Carnival at Lone Tree Brewing Company
June 17; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
What: Celebrate the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer with a yummy seasonal pint. Lone Tree Brewing Co. is tapping its Cucumber Wheat beer—also its first seasonal can offering—and, available for the carnival only, a strawberry blonde ale at this event. Corn hole, ladder ball, a charity dunk tank, kid’s carnival games, food trucks, live music and more are will be happening, too. Dogs welcome; no ticket required.

Surf & Turf & Surf at Station 26

West Side Brewery Bus Tour
June 17; 2-10 p.m.
What: Two shuttle buses will be doing continuous loops between Little Machine Beer, Joyride Brewing Company, Strange Craft and Seedstock Brewery for the day. Our advice: Skip drawing straws to see who will be the designated driver and take an Uber there and back.
