Lone Tree Summer Carnival at Lone Tree Brewing Company
June 17; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

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.
